Horex light up Intermot with Regina Evo

Horex Regina Evo 23

Horex is a revived German brand making super expensive hand built motorcycles built around their unique V6 engine, but at last week’s Intermot show in Cologne, the company released an all-new platform at the opposite end of the scale.

Ok, so it’s still likely to be super expensive, but the Horex Regina Evo is the complete antithesis of the big and bulky VR6 range.

Named after, and inspired by, the company’s first ever motorcycle, the Horex Regina of 1950, the Evo is a super light, 133kg, 600cc single cylinder machine making an A2 friendly 47bhp.

Like the VR6 range, the Regina Evo is absolutely dripping in high end technology. It features a carbon fibre monocoque chassis, with the rear shock cleverly hidden away to recreate the hardtail look of the 1950s original. Other throwback styling cues include the nacelle inspired headlight and upper fork shrouds. The seat is one of many parts produced through a 3D printing process and, overall, it’s absolutely dripping in the neat touches you’d expect from a luxury motorcycle.

For example, buyers get cornering ABS, traction control, a LED cornering headlight and a really neat little touchscreen colour dashboard. Wheels are 18” polished spoked items shod with Metzeler tyres, while brakes come from French company Beringer, whose products are popular with racers and custom bike builders. The bike is absolutely awash with carbon fibre and cool laser etched Horex logos, while we think that long polished tank looks fantasic.

There’s no word yet on prices, or whether they’ll be available outside of Germany. Horex say they’re planning to make 100 of this Evo version, with the carbon fibre frame, and if it sounds like your sort of thing we’d suggest contacting Horex directly through their website: www.horex.com
