Well...

..if Motus can get 240 miles to a tank, that makes the machine even more attractive.

I really like the Honda VFR1200F, but most folks report 160 miles to a tank, and that is not enough.

I am liking this Motus more and more. I really hope they can make this happen. My biggest concern is that as a small, start-up company, they won't have the resources to properly develop the fuel injection system and be able to invest enough time and money and resources to REALLY sort the bike out.

I work as a product trainer in the auto industry, and you need millions and millions of dollars and lots of engineers to really develop a mass produced vehicle without bugs.

Shoot, look at Honda's first gen RC51, the SP-1. That bike had horrible fueling...and that was Honda.

I really hope Motus can pull this off. I want one.

I will sell the V-Strom and transfer my Scott Oiler eSystem chain oiler over to the Motus.
