... what was that ? ... ah yes , the Motus. I for one wish them all the best ... with or without a center stand


I was suprised to find that Hesketh still existed at all. Nothing on that website, except the homepage, would open in my browser.

I was thinking how Hesketh attempted to start a new motorcycle company at the high end of the market with a complete design. Unlike Bimota for example which makes high priced exotica using engines from other companies. Considering that the Motus engine was developed by a seperate company, Bimota might actually be a better comparison.
