Motus Motorcycles breaks land speed record for pushrod engine
American V 4 pushrod 1600 CC motor with some (proven) big growl. Check out the link to their site. They claim that they are production ready and waiting to pass EPA testing for the home market. Canada?? We can only hope.
Motus Sets Two Land Speed Records, Rides Home
Press Release- Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah- Motus Factory Racing set the two fastest land speed records of any American production motorcycle at the AMA-sanctioned 2014 Bonneville Speed Trials. Competing in P-PP and P-PG classes, the new records also establish the stock Motus MSTR as the fastest production pushrod motorcycle in the world.
The Motus MSTR motorcycles were raced in stock, unmodified condition with just the mirrors, turn signals and license plates removed. With top speeds of 168.69 mph and records of 163.98 mph and 165.81 mph respectively, company founders Brian Case and Lee Conn set the records before re-attaching the mirrors and license plates and riding 1900 miles back to the Motus factory in Alabama…in 30 hours.
