Are You the Motus MST-R?

Are You the Motus MST R? Motus MST R prototype 2 635x357

We just showed you the first video that Motus has shot while down at Daytona launching the company’s new sport-tourer to the Bike Week crowd. We’re clearly not on our A-game today (I’m suffering from a nasty head cold, and have to fly in 24 hours to Qatar for the MotoGP test), but luckily our readers are, as one commenter has spotted the fact that Motus switches bikes mid-way through the Daytona video.

Sans fairings, and adorned with Öhlins forks (along with a carbon fiber front fender), it looks like Motus has snuck in the Motus MST-R into the shot without anyone noticing. Still not convinced? Well the rider in the video has a clearly labeled “MST-R” logo on his helmet as well. We’ve reached out to Brian and Lee to see what they can confirm or deny on this. Stay tuned.

    Should be:

    Sans fairings, and with adorned with Öhlins FORKS (along with a carbon fiber front fender)

    Regardless of grammar, I want this bike.

    I’m interested to see what they say. It was strange for sure. As soon as he pulls out, boom, different bike. Same gear and whatnot though, I bet they shot two vids and the editor muffed it up.

    @ Jensen, No worries, it was a post about Motus, so mistakes are just part of the fun.
