I've only done about an hour of research into Motus Motorcycles, but from what I've read/seen so far, I think there is definitely potential for a high degree of success, IF they play their cards right. Motus MST: 1600cc v-4 putting out 160 hp (I know, that's not a ton for a 1600) BUT, it's SUPPOSED to be really reliable and low maintenance [valves never need to be adjusted!] The bike has a manufacturer-claimed dry weight of 530 pounds, which is comparable to other big sport tourers. It's supposed to have good suspension that eats up corners pretty well AND is a comfortable ride. Also one thing I noticed very quickly is that the exhaust sound coming out of the motor is fantastic! I thought some of you guys might like this; check it out!
