Would you buy one?

Looks-like?, from your research, that the Motus MST may be the new FJR...?
(tho it needs: bigger windshield, h/bar risers, better seat, highway pegs, tourpak, and maybe a car tire... )

I like the idea of the new motor.
Other than that, there's not enough fairing nor close to enough windscreen to be of any interest to me. It's just another bike.
I could have sworn I read a blurb that they were supposed to be pretty damned expensive, too.
So...the answer is NO!

Should be interesting to see one in the flesh. More info at their website. Still no prices yet. But they say that they will be selling their "baby block" motor by itself for people who want to use it for other projects.

I like the concept but I'm far too used to my shaft drive (rather than chain) and the easy maintenance of the FJR. Besides, "old looking" of not, I think the FJR is sexy looking and I enjoy the weather protection of the body work.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

It seems as though the Motus would be roughly the price of 2 farkled FJRs..
They still haven't listed any prices yet. Their website said they would come out with prices late 2011 IIRC. If you're refereing to the "40K+" post, I think that was complete speculation. Either way, they could still kill it with outrageous pricing, but I'm hoping that they don't.
Since I can't make the Clan Gathering, I may have to go up to Long Beach and see this critter in the flesh.
