I hope they get it sorted as I am (for the most part) against having to meet the vast majority of useless government regs.

Just a bunch of unnecessary crap dreamt up by ignorant public employees in an attempt to try to justify their pay check.

If you are pissed about the MSRP on the Motus Gov. Red tape is the reason above all else.
Here's a link to the EPAs page on certification of new on-highway motorcycles. Go to the .pdf at the bottom for a 22 page brief on the certification steps for a little light reading.

http://www.epa.gov/otaq/roadbike.htm

On a quick look at the certification test data for 2013 (Nov2012 data), there is no evidence of 'Motus' being listed as a certified mfg or any other engine that might possibly be the 1600cc V4. Could be that Motus has the paperwork submitted but not in time for it to be published?

cheers,
