...I sat on the Motus in Houston during their tour. That bike has THE GREAT RIDING POSITION. I can flat foot it, and the set-up is perfect.
I love this bike, but.......
They will have a helluva time convincing me to buy one without ABS.
When I can go to a Honda store and buy a VFR1200F with ABS and Traction control and Honda development and reliability and dealer support for roughly $15,000, the Motus just becomes a boutique bike for wealthy collectors--not that there's anything WRONG with that, but that's not me.
I REALLY hope they succeed. But don't kid yourself, it will be very, very, very, tough for them to make it.
