Cool coincidence that some guy in Germany bought the Horex brand name and is coming out with a bike powered by a VR6 - long time trademark of VW performance engine config for their FWD platforms:

I myself am rootin' for a diesel V10 powered Diavel Maximo... and a VW Touareg rally car with a direct-drive Panigale 1198cc at each wheel.
