West Coast Premier new American made Motus MK V-4 Naked Sport and Touring Bikes!
Los Angeles, CA, June 8th, 2011 - Motus Motorcycles will use the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show for the West Coast premier of their new MST series high performance KM V-4 1650cc Touring and R Model naked sportbikes. The Motus MST series of comfortable American sportbikes have been engineered from the ground up for performance, comfort, and range. The MST concept is a fresh take on what an American motorcycle can be, with optimum rider and passenger comfort for extended, spirited journeys, and quality components for responsive handling.
Motus Motorcyles are the brain child of Lee Conn, designed and built by well known race car engineers Pratt & Miller, fabricators of the 24-Hour of LeMans winning factory Corvettes. The lightweight aluminum V-4 pushrod fuel injected engine is based on the iconic Corvette V-8 small block motor which in normally aspirated race form can pump out up to 800 horsepower. So half an engine could easily be tuned for reliability in the 200-300hp range. Kiss your Yamaha V-Max good-bye!
This will be your first chance to see, touch and order one.

Celebrity Builders Jim Giuffra of AFT Customs, Jim Nasi preparing new
Bike Premiers for 2011 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show July 16th
Los Angeles, CA, April 11th, 2011 - The 20th annual Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, America's premier custom, cruiser, performance streetbike event returns to the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA on Saturday July 16, 2011. The Show features many of the world's top Pro and Amateur custom street bike builders in attendance with their newest 2-wheeled creations of rolling art to compete in the Calendar Show Bike Building Championship for cash and awards including the coveted Best of Show Trophy. Making a return to this year's Show are two legendary custom bike builders which have been featured in the popular FastDates.com Iron & Lace Custom Motorcycle PinUp Calendars over the past 20 years.
Jim Giuffra (middle) and the AFT Model Agency girls took 1st Place Metric custom at the 2010 Calendar Show, joined from left to right by singer/songwriter/actress and hostess Elizabeth Nicole, magician Krystan Lambert, Keith "Bandit" Ball, magician Krystan Lambert, Keith "Bandit" Ball, Calendar Kittens Melody Schuster and Candise Lakota.
Builder Jim Giuffra and the AFT Customs Motorsports Models return to this year's Calendar Show on a 4-year winning streak which has already seen them take home a Best of Show and three 1st Place Metric Custom titles. All of the custom bikes emerging from AFT Customs shop in Jackson, CA, are the creation of shop owner Jim Guiffra, but are hand craft from the ground-up by the beautiful motorsports savvy trade show models represented by the AFT Modeling Agency. In fact two of the girls, Cyndi and Kristen, recently returned from Miller Electric Welding's corporate headquarters in Wisconsin where they received their TIG Welding Certifications. All of the Agency's girls are fully versed in motorcycle tuning, repair,and custom bike fabrication, making them the perfect spokes models for motorsports manufacturers at trade shows and consumer events.
AFT Customs will be premiering two new customs at this year's Calendar Show. "'Senthoh' is based on a 1975 Honda CB750 SOHC, my first streetbike in high school and the first bike I ever customized, " explains Giuffra. "The name in Japanese means 'beginning' both for me as a builder back then, and for the AFT girls today. I'm keeping the bike's specification quiet for now, but I will tell you it is a cafe racer."
"Our second bike premiering is named 'Azumati' - its a VT750 Bobber/Street tracker being built on commission for the Jackson Rancheria Indian Casino. Asumati is a Miwuk Indian word meaning grizzly bear, the monarch of the forest. In Miwuk stories the bear is a symbol of great strength and courage. This bike will be just as fierce with a Yamaha R1 front end, Race Tech Piggyback Rear Shocks, a hidden radiator, CR450 front hub and brake."
The AFT Customs bikes are sponsored by suppliers: Miller Welding, Race Tech, Works Connection, Avon Tyre, Bell /Easton, Dyna Tech, Joker Machine, Grip Ace, Beringer Brakes, JE Piston, Web Cams, Clear Water Lights, Moto Master, Shorai Batteries, Leo Vince, Joker Machine.

AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200s Set for Brickyard at Red Bull Indianapolis GP on Aug 27-28th
June 4, 2011- AMA Pro Racing is proud to announce that its newest class, the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 division, will soon become part of Indianapolis Motor Speedway's legendary motorsports history. On August 27 and 28, 2011, the AMA Pro series will make its Brickyard debut at the fourth running of the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, the roar of big, V-twin engines joining more than 100 years of IMS motorcycling records.
As the only non-MotoGP class invited to participate in the Midwest and East Coast's sole world championship road racing event, the Vance & Hines XR1200 series will carry the flag for the intensely competitive, spec-based racing the AMA Pro championship has become known for. With a full field of nearly identical Harley-Davidson XR1200s, the class features handlebar-to-handlebar, footpeg-dragging action that highlights rider skill and strategy.
"This is an extremely important development for AMA Pro Racing," said company COO and Managing Member David Atlas, "and we're very proud to have been invited to race on the world stage as a companion to MotoGP. We're excited to be able to showcase our series on such a platform, and honored to have a relationship with partners like Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Harley-Davidson. We're looking forward to a fantastic event."
"We're thrilled to welcome AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 racing to the Red Bull Indianapolis GP," said Jeff Belskus, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation president and chief executive officer. "The distinctive rumble of Harley-Davidson thunder and close competition will provide even more on-track entertainment for our loyal fans and enhance what will be the motorcycle event of the year in the United States."
"The sound of Harley-Davidson motorcycles resonates with riders across the globe, and we are excited about this opportunity to bring the thunder of XR1200 racing to a worldwide audience at one of the greatest racing venues in the world," added Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson Director of Customer Experience.
The Speedway hopes the addition of the Harley Sportster class will help draw the huge Mid-West contingent of Harley owners to the weekend's races to counter the downturn in attendace all bike racing in America is currently suffering. But Daytona Bike Week in March has already proven that just doesn't happen even with 200,000 Harley riders in town for the week, the majority of them just don't go to the races at Daytona Speedway. However, throw a classic rock concert in the infield with top name bands, beer and half naked girls like at Sturgis and its a guarantee the great unwashed will come.0
Of the top AMA Pro riders in the fiercely competitive XR1200 class, several have strong ties to the Indianapolis area, including current championship points-leader Chris Fillmore. "I just found out about it today," said the Bruce Rossmeyer's Daytona Racing pilot, "and it's super exciting. It sounds like there's a lot of interest from riders in other series and from other countries, so I think the field's going to be really, really stacked.
Though Fillmore is eager to claim victory in front of local supporters and family, former race winners Steve Rapp, Michael Barnes, Kyle Wyman, and reigning XR1200 champ Danny Eslick won't make it easy for him, and they'll be joined by a grid full of equally determined H-D racers.
The AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 division adds a fourth class of racing to the Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend, as it joins the three World Championship classes---- MotoGP, Moto2, and 125cc---- competing on the 16-turn, 2.621-mile circuit that combines part of the famed IMS oval with an infield section.
Additionally, the Red Bull Indianapolis GP will be the final stop on the exciting Hole Shot Tour Aug. 24-28 for Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) members. The Hole Shot Tour includes VIP perks at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee followed by a ride to Indianapolis, where participants can watch the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, ride a victory lap around the IMS track, and watch Harleys in action at the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Flat Track Championship event at the legendary Indy Mile at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. H.O.G. members can find more information at www.hog.com.
