Maybe some of you remember the HOREX name, it stood for advanced, high technology motorcycles during the times before and after WWII. HOREX started building bikes in Germany in 1923, building 250 to 600cc four-stroke singles. In 1933 they added 600 and 800cc twins which already featured chain-driven overhead cams - quite advanced for its time. WWII interrupted production but in 1948 HOREX was building beautiful 350cc singles again, named "Regina". A 500cc OHC twin with 30hp came out in 1951, the "Imperator". In 1954 a 400cc twin with 26hp was introduced. Daimler Benz took over the company in 1960 and production was terminated. I was born in 1960 but have heard the tale of fast, beautiful and technically advanced bikes of the HOREX brand, so it came as a total surprise to me to see a new HOREX model which is quite a knock-out and should make some waves on the motorcycle scene: a 1200cc supercharged 200hp bike with a three-cam 15 degree VR6 engine! I even like the retro/standard look of the bike. Go here to get more info and see some first pics: http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/17/2011 ... a-retro-s/ Also lots of info if you google "HOREX".
