Now the maker of America’s only premium brand of sport-touring motorcycles and proprietary V4 engines, Motus is pleased to be featured on the Emmy-winning series hosted by Jay Leno, former host of “The Tonight Show”, set to air today on YouTube. Motus is an American motorcycle manufacturer based in Birmingham, Alabama that is starting to reach the big time.
Motus will be featured on Jay Leno’s Emmy-winning series Jay Leno’s Garage today.
Motus founders Lee Conn and Brian Case were invited to Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage earlier this month to tell Jay the story of how a small group of entrepreneurs set out in 2008 to make a motorcycle unlike any other. Born out of a recession and developed with some of America’s most sophisticated engineering partners, Motus began shipping the world’s fastest production pushrod motorcycles to its network of US dealers in 2015. Motus also supplies its turn-key American V4 Baby Block powertrain to other builders and OEMs around the world for marine, off-road, and other powersports applications.

Founders Lee Conn and Brian Case will discuss Motus’ development on Jay Leno’s Garage.
“Jay is without a doubt a very knowledgeable and down-to-earth gearhead. He applauded our effort, particularly with developing our own engine,” said Brian Case, design director for Motus. “He’s a huge fan of our V4 engine and has known about Motus for a while.”
“Jay has a deep understanding of the rich history of American motorcycles and he helped us take a step back and appreciate where Motus fits into that lineage,” said Lee Conn, president of Motus. “This type of exposure is really important as we expand our dealer network and continue to spread our name and message out into the public eye”.

Jay Leno is a knowledgable gearhead and his garage houses some unique classic cars and motorcycles.
The episode featuring Motus will give viewers the chance to see what Jay thinks about the engine and motorcycle, including on-board commentary during his ride. “It was pretty surreal to be chasing Jay Leno through the LA canyons, all on motorcycles that we developed from scratch,” said Case.
