I like the engine idea, but the rest of the bike looks a bit like a bike from the 90s to me. I remember seeing the naked version a while back that had some sex appeal.

convert

$37K converts to £23217.5 right now. Add on the 'rip off Britain' amount, and it's a choice between this and the new Ducati. I bet the wheels still go furry as soon as you ride it in winter! You wouldn't stand for it on a car....

Looks to me like a 'one off' special. Hope it goes well and is practical, coz its too dear and pig ugly. The styling really needs a re-think coz if you are going to charge that sort of money, it needs to look the part. Does anyone remember the Morbidelli disaster?

Reply: Totally agree.The bike has all the goodies...OHLINS,BREMBO'MONOBLOC'S',AKRAPOVIC,carbon fibre,etc but,and its a BIG BUT,the frame looks feeble(silver paint always makes metal look unfinished) and the passenger footrest hangers should have been cast ally,as should have been the swingarm,terrible.:upset: In fact,i'm surprised :shock:they didn't opt for a single sided swinger to give it a muscular look,however.......:unsure:

Dodgy fairing

Is it just me or does the fairing look like the old Powerbonze fairing from years ago that some couriers used to use, me included? Looks uncannily similar. Have to applaud the overall effort and hope it does well for Motus. Like a yank guzzi with two extra cylinders
