Thanks for your interest guys, keep checking http://www.motusmotorcycles.com for updates. We are currently designing the engine and we hope to release details soon. This is no crazy science project. We're just making an affordable bike with proven technology and a kick-ass engine. We're going against the odds though, especially in America, so we need your support!!

Kind regards,
Brian

Hey guys

Happy to have found this forum. Just to make things clear... Brian and I worked closely together at Confederate Motor Company.

This is going to be a show stopping world class motorcycle. This guy is no joke. He knows what he's doing and has no plans to be second best. I've seen him do highly complex composite mold design to teaching himself (and me!) Solidworks CAD and Gibbscam CAM.  Brian is a good guy and has lots of friends in this industry. Too many people we have worked with over the years think its ok to burn bridges in this industry. Not this guy. Trust me on this one... This thing is going to be a real winner. And I'm honored to be his friend.

Skepticism here.  Makes me wonder how sales of the Fischer MRX are going.


I saw one at Indy!  Didn't get very close, as I was in a cage heading out into traffic.

Anybody heard an update on this group?  With the VFR/Multi it may be a difficult time to try to introduce something like this but just curious if anyone knows if it's still under development?

Needs more than that-probably changing the handlebars round, too.

I would still like to see the extra cc's in the form of tank capacity, not engine capacity.

Engine sounds badass, and the mockup bike in the office background doesn't look too bad.

Hope they make it to roll out a bike someday. Thumbsup

Best of luck to these Lads.  American ingenuity at its best and that engine sounds like a V8 with uncapped headers - oh Mommy   Drool
