Sad news again with the disparition of promising but always struggling French manufacturer Voxan Motorcycles. Founded in 1995, the company has always used the same proprietary and unique engine, a 72-degree V-Twin with a displacement of 996 cc. Voxan delivered its first prototype in 1997 with the first 50 Roadster models delivered in 1999.
It was followed by the launch of a Cafe Racer and Scrambler models respectively in 2001 and 2002. Although extremely respected, the brand had difficulties competing against Italian and Japanese manufacturers and went into bankrupttcy for the 1st time in 2002. Relaunched in 2003 the Street Scrambler model was released in 2003, and the Nouveau Scrambler and Black Magic in 2004.
Then designer legend Phillipe Starck created the model featured here supposed to be launched in 2009, but the company never had the resources to finance production. Voxan was forced in bankruptcy with all hard and intangible assets sold to Venturi MVS a company based in Monaco belonging to Gildo Pallanca Pastor and building limited production solar/electric hybrid cars. His intentions are unknown.
