Talking Motus

I LOVE my Versys, but I have an interest piqued in a Motus. Has anyone had experience that they can compare against a V and a Motus MST? It looks good and made in USA!

Cheers!

My reaction speed is about 40 years too slow for an H2. Our local dealer has one that was special ordered by a (wealthy) customer. It arrived in an aluminum space frame crate. Pretty spectacular, but not my cup of tea.

You guys have some good points.

I did not notice the price. Yes that is really expensive. Could go out and get a GS 1200 for that amount of money. I'd prefer that. I do not need the power (300 HP?) for my needs. That bike does not look like it mounts hard cases anyway. It does look good though in my humble opinion. I wish them well, it would be great to see another American made motorcycle company though.

Cheers!

200 odd, the 300 hp is the H2R

I found a read on the Motus and it will mount bags, the same v35s I have! They were less than happy with the gearbox as I recall saying it was clunky and noisy.

Now for the money I'd buy a new Versys 650LT a new KLR, all tricked out, and a Royal Enfield with sidecar!

Then I'd likely waste the rest on fast women and booze!

Or was that look THEN leap?
