Cafe racer with an electric heart

The electric motorcycle supplier Horwin is presenting two new light electric motorcycles at the EICMA in Milan: the CR6 and CR6 Pro models.

HWith its two new models, which will celebrate their premiere at the EICMA, orwin is relying on the currently popular cafe racer look. Accordingly, the abbreviation CR for Cafe Racer also characterizes the model name. The two new models CR6 and CR6 Pro are located in the L3e class, which corresponds to 125 cc combustion engines. For the frame, Horwin relies on cast parts made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy. A USD fork is used at the front and a central spring strut at the rear. The 17-inch cast wheels are fitted with 100/80 tires at the front and 120/80 at the rear.

150 kilometers range

The CR6 is powered by a 7.2 kW and 180 Nm electric motor. The Pro is powered by an 11 kW and 200 Nm engine. The range of the Horwin models with the permanently installed and armored battery pack is around 150 km (at an average speed of 45 km / h). Thanks to the integrated charger, the 55 Ah lithium-ion battery from Panasonic is fully charged to 80% (CR6 PRO) or 100% (CR6) at any normal socket within three hours. In 20 minutes enough energy should be bunkered for distances of 20 to 30 kilometers.

A maximum of 105 km / h

The almost 140 kilogram heavy CR6 models are supposed to sprint from zero to 60 km / h in six seconds (Pro: 5 seconds), the top speed is given as 95 km / h for the CR6 and 105 km / h for the CR6 Pro . The lighting is based on LED technology, the cockpit on a digital display and the ignition does not need a conventional key. A CBS brake system with a 240 mm disc at the front and a 180 mm disc on the rear wheel is used for deceleration. The models are approved for two people, the seat height is 815 mm, the payload is 170 kg. The Pro version differs from the basic one in that it has a five-speed gearbox and a slightly different look.


The Horwin CR6 is available at prices from 5,890 euros in black, white, green metallic or blue metallic and the Horwin CR6 Pro from 6,990 euros only in black. Both versions will be available in Germany and Austria from the end of November.

Horwin Europe GmbH is based in Kammersdorf (Austria) and has exclusive European sales rights to several e-vehicle manufacturers. With the models CR6 and CR6 Pro now presented, Horwin Europe is now for the first time with vehicles it has developed itself. The two-wheelers are made in China. Behind Horwin are the entrepreneurial families Zhou WEI from Changzhou (China) and Heinzl (Heinzl Group) from Lower Austria.
