I really hope this pans out. I really don't understand why the U.S. can't have a motorcycle company that makes more than cruisers and cruiser based baggers. I just bought a bike last year, so I won't be in the market for another bike for several more years, but if they make it that long, they will certainly be on my short list for my next bike. If Erik Buell comes out with another street bike by then, though, he will likely get my money.

Is there even a ballpark ETA on when this bike's going to be ready for sale?

I wish MOTUS the best on getting this to market! With the current economy, let's hope they get enough buyers to keep the company going. We need another American m'cycle manufacturer with innovative ideas...that work well.

As for the chain vs. belt vs. shaft drive: I would prefer a belt. Clean and simple.

I would like to see and ride it in person before committing to buy (unless I win the lottery and money is no object ).

Wonder what the second bike they would produce would be? A dual sport? A smaller displacement S-T?

Got my fingers crossed. A new company making bona fide sporty motorcycles right here in the US would be awesome. V4 sounds great too.

Yeah I think I was in diapers when they came up with that idea.

That's more than a 'bit of an update' --- that's a game changer.....same horsepower as the BMW 6 with 200# less weight.....and I'm guessing a 12K service will be $300 less......fantastic and American made.....Bruce

hints of hyd. valves (re:no valve adjusting) only sweetens the bike's potential.........!!!!

Not really a comparable bike to the Beemer 6. Certainly very intriguing, both for the light weight and engine design, and for the lack of a BMW final drive

SO true.

And here I was thinking about the Diavel for my next bike

I'm extremely impressed with this bike!!!!!! I think they even nailed the styling! I really hope this company is able to succeed and grow. That bike, as it looks in that video, is pretty much exactly what I want in a motorcycle right now.
