Partners Lee Conn (Health Care Industry background) and Brian Case (former developer and designer of the Confederate Wraith) believe so. In 2008 they incorporated Motus Motorcycles (motus means motion in Latin) and polled bikers who ride long distance and got the confirmation that above all they want engine reliability and aerodynamics in a lightweight machine.
Will 2010 be a breakout year for the Motus MST-01? Prototype engine is a proprietary 140″ fuel injected, liquid cooled V4 using a single chain driven camshaft with pushrods, 2 valves per compact cylinder. It is mounted longitudinally and used as stress member. Rider position is upright on an aerodynamically enhanced body with hard bags and a trunk. Performance, comfort and range is the trilogy that Motus wants to provide to sport touring riders. To follow…Motus Motorcycles.
