The 2014 Motus Sportbikes and MV4 Engine Debut at the US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca
-Motus MST series of comfortable American sportbikes begin initial production
Monterey, CA (7/23/2013) - Motus, makers of the only American V4 sportbikes, revealed the much-anticipated 2014 MST production motorcycles in Monterey, CA at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca July 19-21. Two years after first showing prototypes at Laguna Seca, Motus returned with production vehicles and a growing dealer network.



The 2014 Motus MST series was revealed at the US Grand Prix in Monterey to an incredibly enthusiastic crowd of fans and supporters. Special thanks to the gracious staff at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, our dealers and staff that helped at the display, and all our vendors working so hard to meet production goals. 



The Motus MST and MSTR are built for comfort on longer rides, but also have another side. Powered by the mighty MV4 Baby Block engine, the MSTs feature lightweight, responsive chassis and race-spec components to thrill even the most experienced riders on twisty mountain roads or coastal highways.

“As street riders, we wanted the Motus to offer an unparalleled experience from 20-90 mph, where we do almost all our riding. With a quick sprocket change, the MSTs are geared for 204 mph top speed, but the focus has been on making massive torque in a usable street range, from 2500 rpm to 7500 rpm,” said Brian Case, co-founder and Director of Design for Motus. “We also built in a sensible riding position, adjustable windscreen and controls, and other accommodations for longer rides.”


  
Motus has a growing network of 16 high-quality dealers from Seattle to Miami with the goal of adding additional dealers in Southern California, the Midwest and the Northeast. Commercial and retail financing is in place, motorcycle insurance is commonly available, and the MSTs offer a competitive 2-year, unlimited mileage warranty. 2014 MST’s and MSTR’s will begin shipping this fall to dealers and customers reserving them now.

“While we are a small, growing company, our products offer a unique and compelling experience for riders and dealers. For riders, the Motus is a premium high performance sportbike with an incredible amount of character and value. For dealers, Motus makes a great addition to other premium lines as it does not compete with mass produced motorcycles and brings in new customers looking for something that did not exist until now,” said Lee Conn, co-founder and company president.


To schedule a test ride, call your closest Motus dealer and request a slot for a very limited number of factory sponsored demo rides this fall and winter. All Motus dealers are accepting reservations on their limited allocation of 2014 MSTs now.
