Motus aims to bring in the best of two worlds: custom, small-series sporty bike manufacturing and comfort-minded touring machinery for those not willing to settle for the likes of the BMW R1200GS, KTM 990/1190 Adventure or even the Ducati Multistrada.

The Motus MST arrives in two flavors, with the R one being an aeven sportier build, with Akrapovic exhausts, carbon fiber elements and 185 HP. Not exactly a blast compared to the standard 165 HP version, but truly appealing those in search fo more canyon-carving menace.

The power unit is also available as a crate engine for customizers, and we'd really like to see the brutal and weird 4V in one-off machinery. As far as Asphalt & Rubber photos show it, the Motus is no toy for the faint of heart or beginners, and the bike looks like massive, zero-compromise fun.

The price tag follows in the same line, with the Motus MST retailing for $30,975 (€23,779) and the MST-R for $36,975 (€28,385). They could have drawn a headlight with less KTM 990 Adventure DNA, by the way...
