Ok, I'm outta here. I finally found a thread for a new bike that I am very interested in, can actually afford, and is definitely coming here. As for Motus, well, who cares?

The top case on that bike is custom made so it goes over the back seat, original its wher every one ells has it.

And about losing your licens, thats al about self control. And IMHO no one with out self control should ride a motorcycle.

It looks like you should buy a FJR1300,Kawa GTR1400 or a BMW K1300GT it has everything you listed, exept that thay dont have real world power and are not made in the usa

The only thing I got out of that is shift from neutral to first is pretty clunk-free.

Also...

The clutch drags a bit...

First gear is pretty tall...

It sounds awesome!

I've deleted my previous ZX14R post as I feel it's too far off topic for this Motus specific thread.
Best of luck to Motus in their effort to bring a top of the line ST bike to market.

Thanks, Tom

Ah, that makes sense. Then I like it for solo riding, keeps the weight centered.

I think we basically agree on this, I have a GSA and a KTM righ now, because there aren't good options American made. I almost bought a Buell Ulysses, but the riding position was too cramped for me. And while I agree with you about self control - a ZX14 has the annoying habit of just goading you to pull the trigger....all the time.... I lack self control...

I love the mid range torque of the Harley engine, that's what I think the Motus is bringing to the table - but with a chassis that makes sense.

I'm not sure how close a zx14 is to the motus category wise....but I have a 270rwhp zx14 I bought with 1600 miles on it, boosted it (which means turbocharged for some of the folks who don't understand the terminology), and have a little over 10 grand total in it. It looks like new, is very comfy for long rides, handles extremely well for its size, makes a superb sports tourer, is brick reliable, and is the most intense, thrilling, gas powered vehicle of any kind I've ever experienced and probably ever will.
I'll be keeping this bike forever
If the motus does end up competing with the zx14R, which it might, it'll have to be pretty unique to compete with a bike half its price, that also has more power, traction control, abs, very comfy, great for the long haul, very practicle, and a TON of fun to ride

If the economy turns around it could do well, if not......I gotta wonder. Tough competition out there for a lot less money.

For me the motus looks more like a biger version of somthing like suzuki bandit or simulare types.
