Depending on who you ask, the Motus story is inspirational, depressing, or possibly a combination of both. While the company recently went out of business, you can still enjoy the insanity of the “Baby Block” motor in a package that requires your brain and your wrist to keep things safe – there’s no ABS or traction control.
The Motus was available as the base model MST and the MST-R – the latter is the one you want as it comes with carbon fiber fairings, carbon fiber wheels, 15 more horsepower, and more. But the base bike was staggeringly equipped as well, with all the parts that you would call up aftermarket companies for to replace parts on other bikes – Ohlins suspension, Sargent seat, Brembo brakes, Andrews Cam, Givi bags, Akrapovic exhaust…it’s an insanely long list. For more on what the MST-R offered and why you should want one, check out this review on RevZilla.
This example has just 780 miles and is claimed to be like new. The seller is a dealership called CycleMax, and they’re asking for $27,500 on their own web page. Find this MST-R for sale in Gaithersburg, Maryland with bidding up to $5,766.13 and the reserve not yet met here on eBay.
