motus mst r launched

Motus has unveiled much the awaited American V4 the Motus MST and the Motus MST R at the Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. The Motus pair are powerful but not fully fledged sportbikes. These are the sport touring type. Both the motorcycles feature the 1650 cc 90-degree V4. The MST R produces 180 HP at 7800 RPM and 162.7 Nm of torque at 6600 RPM and the regular MST makes 160 HP at 7400 RPM and 162.7 Nm of torque at 5800 RPM. The chassis is a lightweight one with race spec Ohlins, lightweight OZ aluminium wheels (MST), BST carbon-fibre wheels (MST R) and Brembo brakes, 2-year unlimited mileage warranty and will be available by August this year if you book now. You can check out the detailed specifications of both the Motus bikes here.

Brian Case – Co-Founder and Director of Design for Motus

“As street riders, we wanted the Motus to offer an unparalleled experience from 20-90 mph, where we do almost all our riding. With a quick sprocket change, the MSTs are geared for 204 mph top speed, but the focus has been on making massive torque in a usable street range, from 2500 RPM to 7500 RPM. We also built in a sensible riding position, adjustable windscreen and controls, and other accommodations for longer rides.”

Lee Conn – Co-Founder and Motus President

“While we are a small, growing company, our products offer a unique and compelling experience for riders and dealers. For riders, the Motus is a premium high performance sportbike with an incredible amount of character and value. For dealers, Motus makes a great addition to other premium lines as it does not compete with mass produced motorcycles and brings in new customers looking for something that did not exist until now.”
