Motus is a prototype only showcased with a strictly competition exhaust, minus a catalytic converter that will most certainly be needed before it goes production, presently too loud to be ridden legally in many cities but we already have the impressive horsepower numbers (given an engine with half the displacement). If Motus wants to be a Sport Touring bike that sells itself based on torque, why doesn’t it just go Diesel? A quiet exhaust IS a feature on a sport tourer. but as for longer travel throttle being a feature for anything, never heard of that one, the guy looks like he’s flapping one wing!
USA has an impressive history of innovation I would Love to see resurface in the motorcycle world, but I fear we’re still waiting, that bikes frame and styling screams ‘copied from Ducati’, the exhaust note blats ‘I can sound like 2 Harleys’ and the motor raves ‘look ya’ll a dern good four cylinder Nascar engine’. Do we know if the suspension components and brakes are borrowed from another bike or scratch design and built ?
If I sound harsh it could be the 5 day soar throat and head cold:( …but at least we’re entertaining the lurkers eh Jeff;)
