At the rear wheel stock I don't believe any of them did but I could be wrong. Any stock dyno runs I've seen have been between 85-90. The brochures for the 12 were 102/103 IIRC.

85-90hp at the wheel would be around 102hp at the crank. No manufacturer quotes rear wheel horsepower, they quote SAE Net (J1349) which is at the crank with all engine driven accessories connected.

While I want to see Motus succeed, I also want to see dyno numbers. No matter what manufacturer (or industry) you look at, there is a physical law, which states: The numbers quoted by engineers are adjusted by a variable percentage as they are passed through the PR department.

My Buell Ulysses spun the dyno at 82hp which was strong from what I was told. Some only managed 72-75. It was a fabulously fun motor though.

The Motus engines strong point is in what it isn't. It's not a fancy high zoot multi this, double that, etc. It follows the golden rule of "No replacement for displacement" and I'm sure it will be an absolute hoot to ride. Can't wait to try one out.

I'll be amazed if 140 of those 160HP show up at the rear wheel...

The HP level maybe realistic. The R version is claiming what the old ZX14 had(185hp). It's lower tech but 300cc's bigger. But until we see a full dyno sheet, and real world MPG numbers (not just 'the guy's say around 40mpg) then it's all speculation. In my experience, when bigger motors make the same power as smaller more sophisticated motors they end up burning more fuel. MPG matters with a sport tourer, no matter how deep the owners pockets are.

Ok, I'm convinced now.

So don't get me wrong, I want them to succeed.
But these would make some pretty interesting souvenirs if they don't.

That's not uncommon. Clothing $$ is what helped resurrect Indian one time.

I would just like to give a wave to the Motus staff who reads this thread every night and toasts it with their Scotch (or moonshine). Ha!

There's more chatter here a non-bike than there is about some real bikes.
