Motus rolls out

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.

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