i'm sure it's not gonna be cheap

Reverend12: you have any inside info?

PerfectStranger 09-23-2009 12:23 PM

I'm all for having options in the marketplace. What I can make out looks pretty nifty.

ooooooo -- "a scandolous exhuast note."

I love these sites that tout illustrations (rather than bikes) . . . . vaporware is not limited to the software industry.

apologies to all invovled if this is a real try at a product, but, if it is, check your marketing guy's purple prose before it gets posted ;-}

Motus was first announced on the Kneeslider back in April:

Good luck to them.

No inside info, but I'am gonna stay on top of this. And Your right, probably ain't gonna be very affordable compared to an FJR or a Connie..but it is cool being built here in Birmingham.:freaky

Hmmmm, let's see - what other purpose-built, liquid-cooled V-4 engine has already been approved for USA emissions? :evil Whatever the price ends up, it is good to see a new American cycle company developing something much more interesting than an air-cooled, hard-tailed, TLC channel wannabe.

I'm going to guess the price of admission will be in the 22-24K range.

One of the designers was active a few months ago on Sport-Touring.Net collecting information on what people wanted in their dream ST machine.
