Sneak Peek of JT Nesbitt’s Bienville Legacy.

Check out Alan Cathcart’s first impressions of the supercharged, V4 Baby Block-powered, Bonneville-bound masterpiece- the Bienville Legacy by Bienville Studios in January 2014’s Cycle News. About 90% done, The Legacy has to be one of the most innovative, interesting and finely crafted machines built in a long time.

National Corvette Museum Exhibit- Two Wheel Speed.

It was a huge honor for us to loan an MST prototype and V4 Baby Block prototype to the National Corvette Museum for their 1st motorycyle exhibit Two Wheel Speed. Here is a link to an article about the exhibit was a huge success. It is no secret that we are Corvette nuts here at Motus, so it was humbling to be in such good company among the cars and other interesting motorcycles. Big thanks to the incredible staff and leadership at the National Corvette Museum. If you haven’t been there yet, put it on the bucket list.

Motus featured in Cycle World’s “On The Menu”.

Grab the February edition of Cycle World and check out Mark Hoyer’s article “Sport-Touring On The Menu” where he highlights the Motus MST in reviewing several sport-tourers on the lighter, smaller end of the spectrum. The MST tips in above the quoted 500 lbs, but not by much.

“…our ride on a prototype was promising, and the engine sound was amazing. Ready-to-ride weight is said to be 500 pounds, which, with the ponies on tap, means the Motus should go like hell.”- Mark Hoyer, Cycle World, 2/14
