Motus has a fan page on facebook now.

Here is their last post.

Motus Motorcycles
Couldn't bring himself to write a big fat ticket once he got a closer look at the MST-R prototype......

I agree, but damn that motor is sexy. with a little design work, it could be totally killer.

Agreed -- it's not something I can really put my finger on (that the rear rotor looks different than the front does annoy me for some reason) but the bike just needs to be "polished" I guess. I'm sure a few tweaks here and there would have it looking fantastic with or without fairings.

The Dragon

Do we (ADV) have anyone at the Dragon watching for the MOTUS drive through? No way would anyone do a test across the country without doing the Dragon. s gap.

I wish they were posting their route and tentative schedule. It would be pretty cool to hook up and tag along for a chunk of the journey!

I got a message from Motus last night. They are going to be in Indy at the MotoGP. They also said that they will be posting a tour schedule in the near future.

Where'd did all the Motus info go?

Has anyone seen them in your area?

Have they hauled the melted carcasses back to Birminghan or are they still burning up the road?

Is anybody out there?

I saw a few pictures earlier this week on another site of them testing at Barber. I think after that test the bikes were headed to Michigan for a complete tear down and evaluation. Hopefully we will see more as the summer racing season picks up and they make it to a few more places.

I've seen it, sat on it, and heard it run.

Now I'm ready for a test ride.
