Voxan Rock On-- The APOLITICAL thread

I was down by the Alps this weekend and while taking a break this guy pulled up on a Voxan. Looked like a pretty neat bike. I read a review in a British mag a couple of years ago and it was pretty good. Too bad that they are only available in Europe.

Kind of reminds of a Guzzi mixed with a TL

That is different looking, but I like it I wonder where they source their motors. Its definately not a TL based mill, I don't think its a RSV/Tuno style Rotax either. I'm not too familer with the SP2/RC51 motor so thats possible or perhaps its made by a small company somewhere......whatever the case, its cool!

Hey Wade

Fabrice Miguet brought a Voxan Cafe Racer across to compete in the TT in 2004 and 2005 - it made a lovely sound when he opened the throttle away from where I was watching at Quarterbridge Corner

Magic Racer

Why so negative about Voxan? It's al lovely bike with I drove over a 3000km in one week in june 2012 through the Alps. Not one single problem at all. The bike has a own Voxan 72 degree V twin engine 996cc dry sump.




















After this trip I started with re disigning my Voxan. Ik bought a alu Black Magic tank to make it a naked bike like the Black Magic, but with the rear of the Cafe Racer, the Voxan Magic Racer http://www.motor-forum.nl/forum/list...c-Racer-1.html (lots of pics)

Wow, that's a great looking bike! I look forward to seeing your progress.

And for the idiots who insisted on posting the CS&M crap here, this thread is SIX years old!

The black magic looks tons better than the original, IMO.



You're definitely on the right track.

And to keep this CS&M proper, VIVA LA SOCIALISME!!!!!!!!!!

Yes I agree. I've always wanted a Voxan but alas, being on this side of th epond I can't have one. It looks like a bike I would build if I had the resources to do so. Big grunty V Twin in a sport chassis. Was a good thread untila bunch of faggots had to ruin it.

Agreed! on both counts. I have to say, I've spent a lot of time in Europe over the last few years & I can't remember seeing one on the road, even in France. I believe they are "Rara Avis" even over there. Kind of reminds me of the RC 51.

It's a very cool looking bike and a neat alternative to the usual suspects. Great pics!

Hello, it's been a while sinds I'v been here.
I did a lot of progress on the Voxan project, but it is not done yet.



This is my photobucket album with a lot of pics.
