  • Miata + Motus V4

    Saw a Motus motorcycle at C&O this weekend. Never seen one before and the V4 engine caught my eye:

    180 hp @ 8200
    V4 pushrod
    mass produced sensors, etc

    Just listen to it....

    MST 3000 RPM PASS BY

    Available as a crate motor.

    And it's already been put in a car. Here's the engine is in a '58 F1 Ferrari replica:

      That would be an interesting Miata engine swap. I wonder what it weighs.

          I wonder how that feels while riding, gyroscopically.

              No different than any other motorcycle.

                V4 in Honda VFR motorcycles, Aprilia RSV4, and the Yamaha (star) VMax. Willing to bet the VMax engine is significantly cheaper than the Motus.

                  No doubt they are cheaper. The Motus is big money.

                  Setting $ aside, the crank orientation of this motor like that of the Goldwing, Motoguzzi, or BMW K series would greatly simplify a rwd car installation. And this thing sounds cool!
