I don't care what it looks like, I still want one!
It looks a lot better in blue. The bars look like they have moved up and back compared to earlier display bikes, too much so for that kind of power. But people with that kind of coin, don't like putting their hands out.

That maybe so but the Motus takes it to a new level because that after market stuff is so high end.


I'll bet that longitudinal engine mount lets that thing turn like it's 1/2 it's weight.

I don't know...

...here I am on the prototype in Houston last year.

Looks about the same bar height.

The Motus had THE perfect riding position. I'm a 29 inseam and I could flat foot it in tennis shoes. I want one.

Looks like a Hayabusa front fairing and an early 90s sportbike rear end. Yuck!!!

When aerodynamics is allowed to dictate design, you end up with something that looks like a Hayabusa front fairing.

How do you know it's a twin? That's about like saying the Scrotus looks like a twin bcause you only see one head in the pix.

You guys don't get it, yes I know it's a twin. My point is half the motor is covered in frame, plumbing, brackets. Even Honda did a better job showcasing the motor on my CBF1000...

They were supposed to be offering a centerstand as part of the package. Would have lokoed nicer on a centerstand instead of simply being straopped down onto the display crate.

Better like this if a cutomer want to test sitting for seat height i guess.
