While I'm sure it is a great motorcycle (haven't ridden one), I don't think anyone interested in the MOTUS will abandon it in favor of a VFR.
With the windshield down I think it is pretty close to the same riding style as the Motus.
I bought a nice '99VFR with less than 5k miles last year, 2700.oo. Have a friend that bought a '03VFR 2400.oo.
One of the best sounding bikes for the money. How many more can I buy? Why check the valves anymore with these prices I can throw it aside for my parts bike and buy another.
