Frequently Asked Questions

**Q: Where can I see, test ride, and purchase a Motus MST or MST-R? **
* Motus motorcycles and related products will be sold through a network of existing, rider oriented dealerships. We are working with dealers that have inquired and we are reaching out to others that have been highly recommended by riders. We need your input! If you have a favorite dealer that may be a good fit for a new line of premium American sportbikes, please let us know who they are. And, please let the management there know you want to test ride a Motus.

Q: What are the differences between the MST and MST-R?
* Both the MST and MST-R are comfortable sportbikes designed for long range canyon carving, solo or two up. Both the base model MST and the premium MST-R are exhilarating, charismatic machines powered by the mighty KMV4 "baby block" engine. The premium "R" version is lighter and comes standard with the highest level of componentry available. Upgrade options and trim/feature packages will be offered on both models.

Q: What it the expected retail price of the MST and MST-R?
* We will announce final pricing, options, and full production specifications for the MST series later in 2011. We are still evaluating key components and suppliers and are working hard to keep the base price affordable for a wide range of riders. Please stay tuned.

Q: What is the American Sport Tour?
* To make sure the MST's meet strict durability, performance, comfort and range standards, we are conducting a high level validation program that includes internal static testing as well as extensive real world road tests. We will be riding the MST's to the four corners of the US during our American Sport Tour to test in every possible condition, altitude, road surface, and weather change, so that, by the time production begins, the MST's meet or exceed each of our standards. Along the way, we will meet with supporters and dealers that have voiced interest. More detailed travel plans and itineraries will be published soon, but please feel free to send us your suggestions of beautiful routes, challenging road rides, and other interesting/notable places that we should consider including on our American Sport Tour. We would love for you to join us and ride along as well.

Q: Does Motus have plans to build a streetfighter, automatic transmission, 3 wheeler, side-car, adventure bike, dual sport, smaller/larger displacement, turbo charged version, hovercraft, track car, etc?
* Motus is focused squarely on building comfortable American sportbikes. We can not confirm nor deny any other future plans. Please stay tuned for a lot more from Motus in the years to come.

**Q: Is Motus looking for test riders? **
* We currently have a full slate of professional test and development riders.
