MOTUS MST-01 GDI V4 FUTURE SPORT TOURER

MOTUS MST-01 GDI V4 FUTURE SPORT TOURER
The future of sport touring is taking shape at Motus with Motus MST-01 sports tourer included GDI tech. The MST-01 is a comfortable sportbike designed for long distance canyon carving and face-melting performance. At the heart of the Motus MST series is a purpose built, liquid-cooled V4 engine with a scandalous exhaust note.

The V4-engined Motus MST-01 sports tourer seems to be getting closer to production reality. Motus are proud of the fast that the bike has been engineered in Michigan and designed and built in Birmingham, Alabama, in the US. The bike’s 1,650cc liquid-cooled V4 has been designed by Katech, whose claim to fame seems to be that they’re the ones who developed the Chevy Corvette Z06’s 500-horsepower engine.
 
Among other things, the Motus MST-01’s engine features gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology and high-speed digital fuel-injection, which is supposed to offer significant power and performance benefits over regular engines. 
 
What we find interesting is that Motus are pitching their sports tourer against nothing less than the Honda VFR1200F. The fledgling American company believes its 140bhp V4 – with only two valves per cylinder but with added benefits of GDI tech – will be able to take on the big VFR and, of course, other high-tech sports tourers from various Japanese and European companies.
 
With its triangulated tubular steel chassis, chain drive, high-spec suspension, integrated luggage carrying capacity and that all-new V4 engine, the MST-01 should be an interesting motorcycle. We just hope it will actually deliver what it promises when it’s launched later this year….
