With all the uncertainty surrounding a lot of struggling bikemakers these days, it’s refreshing to see a fledgling brand making some production headway. That’s what’s happening to Motus these days, and for what it’s worth, everybody is excited to see what lies ahead for theall-American V4 sports tourer.
For now, production of Motus’ motorcycles has reached a point where the company is confident of shipping bikes on a weekly basis, particularly the MST sports tourer. That sort of thing may not mean much for a company like Harley-Davidson, but that’s a huge deal for a relatively new brand like Motus.
The company also announced that it had set up a new dealership in Southern California to handle the sale of its motorcycles. That responsibility now falls on San Diego BMW, which according to Motus, is already taking orders of the MST. Even better, engineers at San Diego BMW are well-versed in dealing with sports bikes and tourers, making it an ideal dealership to handle and cater to customers looking to buy any of Motus’ motorcycle lineup.
It’s reassuring to see a company make this much progress in the industry in light of other manufacturers sitting precariously on the other side of the fence. It doesn’t mean that Motus is on its way to becoming a heavyweight player in the business, but from where it was a few years ago, the company has definitely progressed to the point where it’s on the precipice of becoming a mainstream company.

Motus Motorcycles’ dramatic ascent in the motorcycle industry continued when the Alabama-based manufacturer official received its certification from the California Environmental Agency’s Air Resources Board (CARB), officially making its lineup of bikes legal in all 50 states in the US.
The certification is a huge deal for Motus as it can now begin preparations to introduce the MST and MSTR bikes to a market that has waited long enough for the two bikes to arrive. Those who already know about Motus should be delighted about the prospects of seeing its bikes in dealerships in the near future. Those who aren’t too familiar with the company will get acquainted with it really quickly, thanks in large part to Motus’ distinction of owning to land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats for American production motorcycles, records it set with the KMV4 liquid-cooled V4 engine, considered as the “first gasoline direct injected engine” in the business.
Either way, Motus has already hit the ground running after receiving its CARB certification. It’s already unveiled its demo ride schedule throughout the country, beginning on May 8 and 9, 2015 at Battley Cycles in Gaithersburg, Maryland up until June 26 and 27, 2015 at Rocket Moto in Nashua, New Hampshire.
It’s the dawn of a new day for the US motorcycle industry as Motus Motorcycles officially embarks on its mission to become a major player in the business. With its credentials and long list of accomplishments in the world record scene, it’s not a question of whether the company will succeed in the US as much as it is how long it’ll take them to do it.
