scodill,better than forking it all over to the Wall-Street-Vultures...
$1000 an hour minimum wage ! I'm all for it...
It would solve all our economic problems and we would make out shit here in the good ol' usa again instead of china to make a few greedy bastards even richer...I don't have an I-phone or I-pad...

How times have changed;the bikes for and the "1%'ers" of today...
While I still think 1%'s don't ride and spend their money on expensive chicks,mansions,Lear Jets,Yachts and high end cars...
A motorcycle for only $37K is only for the downtrotten proletarian masses waiting to get exploited in their capitalist paradise...
...and boxerlust is trolling yet again. Please go and spooge all over your beloved BMWs and leave the people who can see beyond 1 brand alone.

Mucho dinero for working stiffs. Still waiting to hear if any inmates here are going to put a deposit.
It won't be me. When I saw them in Dallas last year, my price guess was $25-30k and I was still a thousand short. They're nice bikes but at that price, nowhere near competetive with other offerings for someone who buys their bikes to ride. Yeah, I like to ride something that's a bit different from the crowd, but Guzzis do that for me for a lot less.

oh and just to show how duplicitous I am, the connie 14 is a beast with similar numbers too..... Albeit it's nowhere near as cool as the motus.

More nonsense from your keyboard again. Did you know that MSRP on the ST1300 is $ 18,230?

Nobody is paying M.S.R.P. on a new ST1300.I have seen those advertised in LA going for 10900 and 13900 OTD...
Not that I would buy one but too me the ST1300 looks like the the closest competitor to the MOTUS,or the MOTUS a american version of the ST1300 but with sporty chaindrive for the well off 1%ers...

You're wrong. The ST1300 has a very heavy emphasis on TOURING with very little sporting character. It's closer to a Gold Wing than it is to the Motus. If Honda makes anything remotely close to the MOTUS it is the VFR. 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.

Where did the rumors come from? I take it not from Motus?

The "rumor" came from the fact that MOTUS repeatedly stated that the pricing would be "competitive with similar offerings from Ducati and BMW," hence the speculation that low to mid $20K would be reasonable to expect (and even generous, given the price of the Multistrada).
