Motus V4 on the dyno

All-American sports-tourer gets closer to completion

MOTUS, the American engineering company developing a V4-engined motorcycle, have run what looks like a functioning prototype on the dyno.

Motus claimed their sportbikes are being engineered for performance, comfort, and range and that the MST concept is a fresh take on the popular sport touring experience designed for extended, spirited journeys, solo or two up.

The Motus MST series, including the MST-01 and the MST-R, are powered by proprietary, direct injected V4 engines, which aim to combine low maintenance with high performance and a unique character.

Whether it'll be a rival for the Honda VFR1200F remains to be seen.
