Motus of New England goes racing
Rob Swartz of is well known in the “go fast” world. As purveyor of in Massachusetts, riders looking to optimize engine performance send Rob their motorcycles from all over the country.
When Rob inquired about becoming MA’s first Motus dealer, we were thrilled to get him on board. Especially after we determined that we are kindred spirits in many ways.
Motus Motorcycles - born to ride
Four years ago, two friends in Birmingham, Alabama lit a stick of moto dynamite, called it Motus, and tossed it right out in the middle of the motorcycle sport touring pond. The shock waves have been emanating outward ever since. Lee Conn and Brian Case had a dream – a truly American dream. Build the ultimate, do-everything street bike, from scratch, with an all-new proprietary engine and chassis, that would perfectly blend three core principles – performance, comfort, and range. And Motus Motorcycles was born.
AMERICA REINVENTS THE VFR
MAKING AN ENGINE from scratch is unimaginably difficult. It’s one of the main reasons most motorcycles (and cars) are made by gargantuan corporations – to develop and build a half-decent engine takes money and expertise far, far beyond the reach of your everyday company. It’s why even gifted engineers such as Erik Buell and Simon Sanders (of Ariel) choose to use someone else’s motors. It’s why Norton should take a bow just for getting a new engine to market, and why they had so many difficulties doing so. And it’s one reason why John Britten is rightly considered a genius.
