Birmingham, Alabama: Motus motorcycles are now street-legal in all 50 states.

28a16ff9-f96c-4407-9129-aa31a795279aOn April 30, 2015, Motus Motorcycles was issued an Executive Order by the California Environmental Agency’s Air Resources Board (CARB) certifying all 2015 production Motus motorcycles as compliant with California emissions standards.

A few days earlier, three 53ft trailers arrived with 110 pallets of 1650cc Baby Block American V4 engines, with their striking resemblance to half of a GM LS V8 motor. Motus also announced recently that all motorcycle testing and development as well as V4 engine assembly will be performed on-site at their headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama.


Already modified! V4R 1650cc Baby Block, supercharged, 9.5:1 pistons, titanium valves and fasteners, 4-2-1 tri-Y stainless steel exhaust headers, Akrapovic titanium GP slip-on muffler, Öhlins suspension, Brembo monoblocs, one-off 7-spoke BST carbon fiber wheels, Pirelli Angel GT tires. Estimated 230bhp

Though production begins at 30 machines per month, plus V4 Baby Block crate engine sales, future production will be aimed at 500 to 1,000 bikes per year.

In addition to their endless road test programs, they have installed a chassis dynamometer to test entire motorcycles and also an in-house power train dynamometer to test their engines and gearboxes.

Motus motorcycles as well as V4 crate engines are available through their nationwide network of dealers. Motus MST prices start at $30,975
