The Horex VR6 Roadster is expected to arrive at dealerships in the spring with a supercharged version coming later in the year. The supercharged version claims a max output of around 190 hp.Horex currently lists 29 dealers on its official web page; 26 in Germany, two in Switzerland and one in Austria. The company plans to expand to other central European markets over the next two years, beginning with France, Italy and the Benelux countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg).
