Thumbs Up

Using the frame and engine from the Horex VR6 Classic as a basis, LSL Motorradtechnik custom designed many of the visual and technical details of the new Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. This starts with the much leaner and deeper cut of the seat that integrates the rider into the motorcycle and makes it easier to shift weight on a winding road. The narrow seat design significantly increases physical contact with the bike. Additional LSL Motorradtechnik components highlight the slightly forward-leaning Cafe Racer seat position. Front end features include a CNC-machined triple clamp and clip-ons. The footrests are offset 10mm to the rear. Matching the new seat layout, the Cafe Racer features an elegant tailpiece cover over the passenger seat to effectively accentuate the bike's dynamic appearance. The chassis modifications are enhanced by a new, short-cut front mudguard. Highlighting the sporty look is the round headlight and machined bracket mounted close to the fork, aluminum radiator cover, newly designed rear mudguard and higher license plate frame. The Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. is painted in a brownish silver color.Öhlins suspension components enhance the high-performance DNA of the Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. on the road. The FGRT fork with 43-millimeter tube diameter increases front wheel steering precision with perfect feedback and response. An Öhlins TTX 36 monoshock provides rear-wheel damping. Both elements are fully adjustable for rebound, compression and preload to suit individual riding styles and meet the demands of everything from a short trip to an extended ride with a passenger. The Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. chassis update is complemented by an Öhlins 16-way adjustable steering damper, Brembo Radial master cylinder and Brembo monobloc calipers on the front wheel. In combination with the obligatory Bosch ABS, these components ensure safe and stable deceleration with precise dosing. Innovative Kineo spoke wheels in a black anodized finish create a colorful accent and highlight the unique character of the Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd.
