Motus Motorcycles

I feel fairly certain someone has posted about this before, but why am I only seeing these now?

American-built v-4 based on push-rod v8 architecture. Looks like it would be a ton of fun.

edit: I guess it was posted about. Just don't know how I missed this. http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=263981

Yeah, but still cool as . I kind of wonder if it takes off if they'll do a lower-priced version that doesn't come standard with all the Ohlins/Brembo goodies already on it.

I would assume so...

The mighty Baby Block® MV4 is a pushrod powered V4 that delivers massive torque across a wide, smooth power band. It speaks with an exhaust note unlike anything before it. Equally important, the American V4® uses known technology proven to be durable and easy to maintain. It's the same small block architecture found in the most reliable and competitive engines on the planet from popular American passenger cars and trucks to high performance racing vehicles.
Of course, some people want it for small race vehicles and other motorcycles, but the MV4 may also be perfect for your industrial, marine or other applications. If you are interested in buying a crate engine, we’d love to talk about your ideas.
I love the little open-wheel roadster they built with that engine mated to a T-5

Yeah - they're pretty proud of them. Awful lot of money for an untested, unproven machine. Even with all the top shelf goodies on it.

THAT is cool! I'd rather have it than the bike they are building.

A "low-price" Motus would probably compete with the top end of everybody else's range.

If you really must have something different... sure. Otherwise, there are plenty of less expensive ST's that are better in many more ways.
