i'm sure it's not gonna be cheap
Reverend12: you have any inside info?
I'm all for having options in the marketplace. What I can make out looks pretty nifty.
ooooooo -- "a scandolous exhuast note."
I love these sites that tout illustrations (rather than bikes) . . . . vaporware is not limited to the software industry.
apologies to all invovled if this is a real try at a product, but, if it is, check your marketing guy's purple prose before it gets posted ;-}
Moved to Road Warriors.
Here's a link to the Birmingham News article:
Motus was first announced on the Kneeslider back in April:
Good luck to them.
No inside info, but I'am gonna stay on top of this. And Your right, probably ain't gonna be very affordable compared to an FJR or a Connie..but it is cool being built here in Birmingham.
Hmmmm, let's see - what other purpose-built, liquid-cooled V-4 engine has already been approved for USA emissions? Whatever the price ends up, it is good to see a new American cycle company developing something much more interesting than an air-cooled, hard-tailed, TLC channel wannabe.
I'm going to guess the price of admission will be in the 22-24K range.
One of the designers was active a few months ago on Sport-Touring.Net collecting information on what people wanted in their dream ST machine.
It looks like a vaginal crease.... :huh
Either you've misplaced your eye glasses of you keep strange company!! :eek1
While I wish them luck, they're stumbling in to a hyper-competitive market. Their bikes will expected to be competitive with FJR's, Connies, and Honda ST/VFR's in performance, styling, reliability and price. Add to that impossible task the handicaps of having no dealer base and no aftermarket.
If they say they're going to pursue the 'premium' side of the market, then they have to compete with RT's and GT's, which means their styling, ergonomics and quality have to be up a notch, and again they don't have the decades of history or the rider community.
They might as well be releasing a 480-pound 600 supersport, with 85 hp, heavy suspension, soft brakes, and 1990 styling that costs $19,000.
I bet this bike will someday end up on a list with Duke Nukem Forever, the new Packard, the new Studebaker XUV, etc.
Step away from the beer goggles and switch on the lights or better still wait for morn and behold the minger of mingers
Given Pratt & Miller's attention to detail and motorsports pedigree/expertise, this is one start-up moto company I'm really interested in following.
A sport touring bike built in Alabama? There's got to be a joke in there somewhere. Like, "What would they call it -- a Yammerhaw S-K-O-A-L?"
