Horex Röth

Fritz Röth, bicycle and motorcycle dealer of Hammelbach, sold Moto-Villa and Italjet lightweights. In 1978 or thereabouts he bought the Horex trademark from Friedel Münch, with whom he had been attempting to resurrect the marque. From 1979 Röth sold mopeds under the Horex banner which were the products of S.I.S. in Portugal and Testi in Italy. In he mid-80s he had HRD in Italy build a number of Rotax-engined beauties, but HRD failed in 1986 bringing the venture to a halt.
