Just stumbled across this post, and read some of the junk posted by stockingfull. It's sad when anyone dies so tragically, and it doesn't help when some use it as an opportunity to make something off it, which was my take on stockinfull's posts. Anyhow, this should have been about posting pic's of your bike, so here is my current ride. Looking forward to Spring.
Have a looky at this - a NEW AMERICAN MADE sportbike!! FINALLY - only took, what .... 40+ years since Honda laid waste to everyone with the '69 CB750 inline 4? It's about damn time. Said prices will be reasonable too .... but reasonable to me is far different from reasonable to most, so we'll see. SOUNDS BEEEEEAAUUTIFUL though! Figures they finally come out with this after I realize I can't even ride that style of bike anymore. Wonder how the hell I did it all those years. Didn't get killed either ... so who says speed kills??? Horseshit!
Built by Birmingham Motorcycle Co. - home of BSA motorcycles ( and small arms ) & Confederate Motors (of chopper fame). Rumor has it the engine is based off the LS7 Corvette engine - it's 100 c.i. (1,684 cc's), cam-in-galley pushrod ( a-la Chevy V8 for a hundred years or more) engine with 160 hp & 122 ft. lbs. of torque!!
Me like!!! Did I mention the sound??? SWEEEEEEEEET!! Although I'm not a big fan of the looks ... but it's growin on me ...

The Motus looks like a nice bike, for a sport bike. If I were still a sport bike guy, I would be interested.
I believe you have the BSA part incorrect. BSA (British Small Arms), originally from Birmingham England, has no connection to Motus. Instead, the Birmingham Motorcycle Company, out of Birmingham Alabama, is the developer of Motus.
