Featured Bike - Motus MST

The Motus MST is a high performance sports tourer currently in development and planned to be on the market next year. The bike has a 1645cc ohv longitudinal engine and a trellis type frame. The numbers are impressive: 160bhp & 500lb dry weight. Motus are based in Birmingham, Alabama and the motor was inspired by the American muscle cars. It must be hard for a new company to take on the existing highly developed sports tourers from Honda, BMW, Kawasaki, Yamaha etc but its good to see the Americans building something other than a V twin cruiser.

I like the styling

  1. I was checking out the website for that bike awhile back. I really like the "half a V-8" engine. Let's hope they can bring it to production and survive. See where Norton is having problems delivering. Got to be hard to to compete with the established giants.
