1 of 3

The US firm co-founded by the man behind the Confederate Wraith will launch a brutal rival to Honda’s new VFR1200 in 2011.

The Motus MST-01 packs a an all-new 1400+ cc across-the-frame engine with an optional supercharger. In either configuration the bike will offer ‘face-melting’ acceleration according to designer Brian Case.

Motus released a teaser image of the confrontationally-styled new sports-tourer recently, but MCN has obtained design sketches which reveal far more of the bike’s look and innovations than the firm intended to be seen yet.

You can see a snippet here, but the full story’s in the 30 September issue of MCN.
