Motus in Daytona
Motus is rolling home from the 2011 Daytona Beach Bike Week where they revealed the MST and MST-R to a huge crowd of American motorcyclists at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show.
Motorcycle show attendees first got to see the touring bikes on Thursday March 10, 2011 at 2pm at the Ocean Center Daytona Beach during the 70th Annual Daytona Bike Week. Reports claim there was a ton of enthusiasm for Motus.
The passionate founders appearently rode the MST prototypes all over Daytona, as they soaked up a bit of sun, did some testing and also saw a lot of great motorcycle racing. Now, it is back to work for the bike builders who plan further road testing in an All-American Sport Tour over the weeks and months ahead.
Work on the Motus started back in 2008. The Motus prototypes are the first V4-powered American sport touring motorcycles developed for this market. The Motus MST is aimed at being a true sport bike that is engineered for performance, comfort, and extended range.
The MST and the premium MST-R models are powered by proprietary, direct injected KMV4 engines that combine low maintenance with high performance and a completely unique character. The chassis was developed in conjunction with Pratt & Miller Engineering located in New Hudson, Mich.
