    It's going to be a tough sell. Rumor has it the all new redesigned Vulcan 750 will have two additional horsepower!

    Personally I think a 30,000 sport tourer should have bespoke luggage, not off the shelf Givi bags. But I'm sure they will work just fine. I hate to be negative because I'd love to see Motus succeed, but with the small piece of the market they are targeting, and the level of the competition, I'm not optimistic.

    Well, the Adventure Touring market looked a lot smaller than that when BMW brought out the G/S. :deal

    Expensive bike, too. And gutless, ill-handling, under-braked ...

    But BMW got lucky: there were one or two wealthy idiots out there who bought one regardless. :lol3

    Maybe they can put apehangers on it , take off the suspension and put drag pipes on it and sell it in the cruiser segment of the pie. They can rename it the Vultus.:D

    Because it wastes my time to click on the link only to be disappointed to find there is no new information, just silly arguing. Kinda like your post.

    In a year, the Motus will probably be nothing but a bad memory. There really isn't anything here worth arguing about. And a certain member just went on my "ignore" list. Those who want can continue to argue about a non existent motorcycle.

    Yes, an early prototype model. Because the real thing isn't for sale yet.

    If I'd known that was even possible I would have been working on it before you learned to string together your first sentence.

    Someone quote me so he can see my response :deal

    Oh, and Vulcan 750's for life, brah :super
