Title: Motus rolls out
Post by: WillyP on March 04, 2011, 02:53:03 pm
In spite of the dragging economy, this fledgling company has just rolled out their first new bike, it has a v4 direct injection engine they designed and built themselves... And it looks like a true sport tourer!

Sweet ride, I'm wishing them all the best. Can't wait to hear what the MSRP might be
on this machine and also some first ride reports.

Yes, in a previous article they said they went with chain because a shaft would have driven up both development and production costs.

I remember that article stating that as well. But that was a little while back.
