    so can I bitch for a second....why did they need to bring back the horex brand? why couldn't it have a new name? I don't think all that many people remember Horex since they were only around from 1901 to 1960 - not a lot of nostalgia to build a brand on. Also this new incarnation has been kicking around since 2010, filed for bankruptcy, been liquidated, and is now coming back around after someone bought all the pieces. still it is cool that it is a supercharged six cyl, but if that lump doesn't throw 200hp to a rear wheel it's not impressive.

    Use of the trademark is kind of weird. It is registered in the EU. We probably could assume that their legal department is preoccupied, or they don't plan on using that moniker much longer. From what I gather it wasn't the cleanest engine in town. Maybe not as clean as claimed, so it may become like a case of herpes anyway.
