Motus Motorcycle Brand Featured On Jay Leno’s Garage

2motus2bismotusAlabama made Motus Motorcycles, America’s only premium brand of sport-touring motorcycles with proprietary V4 engines, is announcing that their 2 models (the MST and more premium MSTR) are now featured on the Emmy-winning series “Jay Leno’s Garage” hosted by Jay Leno (watch episode below this feature)

Motus founders Lee Conn and Brian Case were invited to Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage earlier this month to tell Jay the story of how a small group of entrepreneurs set out in 2008 to make a motorcycle unlike any other.

3motusBorn out of a recession and developed with some of America’s most sophisticated engineering partners, Motus began shipping the world’s fastest production pushrod motorcycles to its network of US dealers in 2015. Motus also supplies its turn-key American V4® Baby Block® powertrain to other builders and OEMs around the world for marine, off-road, and other powersports applications.

“Jay is without a doubt a very knowledgeable and down-to-earth gearhead. He applauded our effort, particularly with developing our own engine,” said Brian Case, design director for Motus.  “He’s a huge fan of our V4 engine and has known about Motus for a while.”

4motus“Jay has a deep understanding of the rich history of American motorcycles and he helped us take a step back and appreciate where Motus fits into that lineage,” said Lee Conn, president of Motus. “This type of exposure is really important as we expand our dealer network and continue to spread our name and message out into the public eye”.

The episode featuring Motus gives viewers the chance to see what Jay thinks about the engine and motorcycle, including on-board commentary during his ride. “It was pretty surreal to be chasing Jay Leno through the LA canyons, all on motorcycles that we developed from scratch,” said Case.

    Great Motorcycle , really looks good too, with a high quality finish.

    With the great challanging roads of America you would think a Sports Tourer will be sort after.

    I think straight Sports bikes in the USA will struggle but a Sports Tourer covers two bases and is ideal for such a large country with amamzing roads.

    The compact size/weight and HP/TQ numbers of that motor are so impressive, AND it looks cool. If they have excess capacity to build them I wonder if they’d do well to market them elsewhere? I can imagine a “Formula M” race series like the old Formula Vee cars, and could be amazing in a small ATV where there is plenty of room to integrate the radiator.

    I’ve been following Motus since 2008,! Glad they didn’t give up, those 2 guys deserve all the Best! They are true Innovators, stuck to their guns & DID IT, CONGRATS! I want a Crate Motor, maybe put it in a Morgan type vehicle? Best of Luck, Guys ! I’ll be visiting, if you’re near the Barber, one of the Best M/C Museums ! Last time, We were there, we ran into a very informative Tour Guide, he knew about every Bike, it was George Barber, a very nice , humble man ! Best of Luck, George! Boston Jim & Nancy

    For whatever it’s worth when I first read the word Motus I immediately thought of some Chinese brand and was pleasantly surprised to learn it was an American made product. Name branding and recognition is paramount in the free market leaving me to wonder how many others have made the same mistake.

    Bike looks good, Strong Work guys. . . I wonder how that bullet would work in a Mini Sprint?
