see one part of the US slowly and comfortably. If you like it, come back (you're young) and pick out another part to enjoy. New England/Eastern Canada in the summer would be wonderful.....the US is...

Kawasaki site shows 566# curb weight......every magazine still in print will do a compro when the Motus shows up......we'll see about 485# ZX14's : )

Zx14----

I wouldn't compare the ZX with the Motus as far as appeal. The Motus is much lighter and vastly easier to work on: Hyd Valves vs 10 hours to dress and undress the ZX for valve adjustments. ...

Not sure...........

I hope the Motus succeeds, but some of us find its styling bland and apparently so does a moto styling expert writing for HFL. Ultimately, its retail price will be a key factor in its success. Time...

we'll see.........

If BMW can plate a 1600-6 for just over 20K, I'm thinking Motus can squeak in under 20K base. They have none of the overhead that weighs down BMW and if they are smart, they will not hire a 'dealer...

Motus Retail Prices......

Don't modern short-run production methods give hope that Motus can produce '100's' rather than '1000's' at reasonable retail prices? Motus isn't trying to build Bimotas but rather simple machines...
