Back in December we reported how Horex had closed its shop and declared that it was no longer going to carry forward the task of reviving the old German brand. If you remember that Horex, On June 15, 2010, announced that the brand would be revived and that a Horex motorcycle with a narrow-angle, six-cylinder supercharged engine would be available for sale in Germany, Austria and Switzerland at the end of the year 2011, with international sales to follow. Besides the new VR6 supercharged engine, an aluminium bridge frame with a steel steering head forms the chassis of the bike in concern. A single swing arm controlled the rear wheel, while the engine power ias transferred by a belt drive system.
As per the latest updates we have got about the brand, it seems all is not over for it as the bankrupt company has been acquired by the 3C-Carbon Group. The carbon fiber parts producer says it plans to resume production. Horex filed for bankruptcy in September 2014, just four years after the declaration of the brands revival as mentioned above, following 50 years of inactivity.
The New owners of the brand, 3C Carbon does have a history with motorcycles, entering a few World Superbike Championship races as wildcard entries in 2014 with riders Max Neukirchner, Lorenzo Lanzi and Xavi Flores. 3C Carbon says it will bring Horex models back to market as soon as possible, making fundamental improvements to the brand’s technology and organization. 3C says it will is also committed to producing spare parts for existing Horex VR6 customers.
