Lotus Motorcycles is bankrolled by The Holzer group/Volkswagen who also own The new motorcycle company HOREX . The HOREX VR6 is powered by a 1400cc TRIPLE overhead cam, 15 degree V6 with 3 valves per cylinder. The Piston tops are actually slanted? This engine is derived from Volkswagens W16 which powers the worlds fastest automobile the Bugatti Veron.
LOTUS F1 race engineers designed the motorcycle , hence why they BOUGHT the right to use The Lotus name .
These are also the same people who own Audi who Bought Ducati . Volkswagens board of directors are all motorcycle enthusiast.
Most likely the lotus will use the new HOREX 1400cc V-6 engine they have already developed. But Use the Supercharged version that makes 240hp which equates to roughly 200 RWHP
