2014 Motus MST In Motion

2014 Motus MST In Motion

In this Insider Update:
NEW VIDEO: 2014 MST and MSTR In Motion!
Press: Cycle World (Nov. '13)- The Motus Position 
Event: 3rd Annual City Bike Night (10/12/13)
Display: Barber Vintage Festival (10/11-10/13)
Exhibit: National Corvette Museum- Two Wheel Speed

Check out the first batch of 2014 MST's undergoing final validation (and some joy riding, too). Each machine gets 30k+ miles of intense durability testing so your Motus will be bullet-proof. So far, so good. Utah was picked for its range of altitudes, temperatures, surfaces, and big-sky roads where encountering law enforcement is, um....infrequent.

 Grab a copy of the fantastic November 2013 issue of Cycle World magazine and check out Andrew Bornhop's article The Motus Position. We were glad to spend some time with Mr. Bornhop and can't wait to throw them the keys again later this fall!

"With pushrod V-Four power, the new Alabama-built Moti are the torque of the town."

After the Barber Vintage Festival on Saturday, 10/12, head to City Bike Night at Motus. We'll be celebrating car and motor culture with a bike/car show, local food and drinks, factory tours and live music by Matt Slocum & Mark Kimbrell Quartet. 6-10pm at Motus, FREE.

It's no secret we loooove Corvettes, so when invited to the first-ever motorcycle exhibit at the National Corvette Museum, we didn't have to think long. When we later learned the MST would be the Bike of Honor, we were more than humbled. Motus is highly inspired by American sports cars so dominant in endurance racing. Fingers crossed, our friends and partners at Pratt&Miller Engineering and the factory Corvette Racing program are on track to win the ALMS manufacturer's title...again. If you're near Bowling Green between now and 1/3/14, stop by and check out an MST prototype and V4 Baby Block on display. 
If we had to pick a favorite motorcycle event, it would be, hands down, the Barber Vintage Fest. Please come check out the bikes in the Fan Zone, enjoy the racing, swap meet, museum, and all the other surprises Mr. Barber and his team have planned.
