Motus MST-R Prototype Motorcycle

Just now entering production for delivery to dealers in the coming months, this likely could be the last chance to see the original high-end Motus MST-R prototype, scheduled to be on display at Öhlins USA’s open house in Hendersonville, N.C., on May 12, 2012.

The Motus MST-R features a proprietary American designed and built V-Four power plant, developed from our continent’s legacy of championship-winning V-8 racing engines. With a rating of over 180 horsepower and 120 lbs-ft of torque, and a chassis to match, this sport-touring machine is thoroughly gifted with sport.

The top-of-the-line MST-R’s chassis features the upgrade of Öhlins suspension components front and rear. Up front is a set of R&T NIX adjustable fork legs, mated to a rear twin-tube TTX mono-shock with remote preload adjustment.

The Öhlins USA Open House is Saturday, May 12, 2012, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., rain, shine or meteor shower, at 703C S. Grove St, Hendersonville, 28792. GPS Coordinates: 35.308795 latitude, -82.451035 longitude. The event includes more than 30 displays of custom and race motorcycles and cars, plus famous humans and live music.
