Motus Closed Course Testing

The heart of the new Motus MST and MST-R motorcycles (Motus means motion in Latin) is the The KMV4, the world’s first direct injected V4 motorcycle engine. The Motus DI system uses a 2,000psi pump to inject digitally atomized fuel into each combustion chamber and is considered an improvement over port fuel injection in terms of emissions, engine longevity, power, and efficiency. durability. Durability testing and efficiency optimization are now underway at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. Changes and tweaking are being made. Let’s continue to support this American Sport Tourer. First track testing video.

    On one side we have Confederate who turn CAD drawings straight into production bikes with zero product development or testing, on the other we have Motus.

    One will be a major motorcycle manufacturer in 5 years and the other will be a forgotten blip in history.

    My money is on Motus.

    Cool, just a matter of time before all mainstream engines are direct injection, long overdue & free HP. Sounds great.

    “The Motus DI system uses a 2,000psi pump to inject digitally atomized fuel. . . ”

    Does “digitally atomized” mean that the fuel droplets are cube shaped? 🙂

  14. 14 Bruce Rogers Apr 29th, 2011 at 8:16 am

    Tenaya. Why? Digital means square???

    Very nice machine indeed! Sounds strong too.
    I had the pleasure of visiting the Barber Motorsports Park and Museum last summer, a great track and an extraordinary collection of hundreds of bikes (and even a few cars) on display… a must-visit for any fan of bikes of all types and vintage.

    AWESOME ! ! ! ! Hope its not a “boutique” bike that starts at $45-65 K Anyone know what dealer will carry them ?

  18. 18 Woody Apr 29th, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    Tenaya, the fuel comes out in 1s and 0s 😉 If I can be of further help, ask away. I’m glad they didn’t mention the “voice coil” technology used in newer DI engines, or “somebody” would ask if the injectors yell, “GET OUT” at the gas 🙂

    Sue, BLAWBULLA, WHAT!! Yer WAY over my head with whatever you jus’ said! I ain’t got a clue! Wiz
