Motus MST-01 is the name chosen by the American Preparatory Lee Conn and Brian Case, who wanted to create a touring bikes different from the usual cruiser motorcycles that are usually the ideal to which he thinks a Centaur North America when it comes to long trips on the road. This bike wants to be special rather than a sport tourer like the European concept of originality, but not without stars and stripes, well represented by the 1650 cc V4 engine (bore and stroke, respectively, equal to 70 mm and 86.5 mm) cooled liquid and fitted with direct injection and distribution chain, the engine, dubbed KMV4 1650, derived from eight-cylinder Chevrolet LS7.R and is capable of delivering a maximum power of 161 hp at 7800 rpm and maximum torque of 165 Nm at just 4500 rpm.
From the stand point of view of the trellis frame chassis and a classical scheme for the suspension, adjustable in three different set-ups and pre-load by remote control.
There are also adjustable windshield, a wraparound front fairing, a seat comfortable and spacious, two large suitcases taken from the catalog of travel and a beacon of derivation Givi KTM, particular those that emphasize the craftsmanship of a project far from the impression European-looking but decidedly out of fashion, the only flaw in an interesting project for the rest.
The preparers also intends to prepare a version of their baby, that R should produce higher-level components (Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, carbon fiber details) and that seems to have been inspired by them even Ducati Multistrada 1200.
Especially in the standard version is about to be submitted to the Daytona Bike Week and to know dealers and prices will have to wait a while ‘since negotiations are still under development.
