I think it's a nice concept and a good looking bike. And I hope it does well because it's a local company. If I had the income level to afford one, I'd buy one in a heartbeat...if only just to be an internet forum "hero" and start a "MOTUS, Who's Got One?" thread. But I don't, and I doubt it's going exponentially outperform my current sport-tourer to justify the price difference to me, which is a...wait for it... ...ZX14 with Givi bags. ETA: I do think they should have done the bags differently. If not having Givi design a MOTUS specific bag, at least spec some proprietary lids to give them a unique and OEM (not mail order) look.
