Heli Modified Inc., the makers of HeliBars, is proud to announce that its patented, comfort-adjustable, multi-axis Horizon handlebars are standard equipment on America’s new sport-touring motorcycles, the exclusive Motus MST and MSTR.
And Heli’s premier product is in good company. The 1650cc, 160 bhp, V-4-powered bikes also feature high-end components from other industry-leader suppliers, including BST carbon-fiber wheels, Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes and Sargent seats.
A new generation of the 26-year-old, Maine-based manufacturer’s unique Horizon ST replacement handlebars, the Motus system has two multi-axis pivots on each side that team up to offer four crucial ergonomic adjustments–height, reach, and adjustability on two planes for wrist angle – for the ultimate in sport-touring comfort.
Lee Conn (Motus President) says: “We initially designed and tested our own adjustable, clip-on-style handlebars, but decided to go with a fully adjustable setup. We were looking for a high level of adjustability, simplicity in use and a fit & finish on par with the bike’s other components.”
Heli Modified President Harry Eddy has followed the Motus story from day one: “The bike is a work of art. They specified certain measurements, strength, weight limitations, tolerances, vibration profile and aesthetic goals. We met each of these design parameters with a proprietary system for this OEM application.”
The result is a robust product with nearly infinite settings that can be fine-tuned for riders of all sizes. “The bars’ hand placement and upper body positioning give tremendous comfort and control,” continued Eddy. “The MSTs blur the line between sportbike and sport-tourer. Motus Design Director Brian Case and President Lee Conn’s passion for motorcycling and love of this project shine through.”
Key to their increased comfort, Heli’s Motus bars are a perfect sport-touring height and width. Their multi-axis, billet-aluminum pivots allow wrist-angle rotation that minimizes upper-body fatigue by allowing riders to more easily support their weight. The bars also pivot six inches forward and rearward, resulting in more natural seating positions for bodies of various torso and arm lengths, which helps take weight off lower backs.
HeliBars are designed and manufactured in the United States to the highest standards. The company offers more than 70 different HeliBars handlebars and riser systems that greatly improve ergonomics so motorcyclists can ride longer distances in greater comfort without changing the overall looks of their machines.
Available for American, Japanese and European sportbikes, sport tourers, touring bikes and cruisers, HeliBars are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee via a 30-day return policy, and come with a one-year warranty.
