End of the Kickstarter campaign: The Motion project continues

The pre-sales campaign of the Motion forks on Kickstarter ended 3 weeks ago with close to 60,000 Euros of commitments. Most Kickstarter projects are fully funded for lower amounts but we voluntarily set a much higher threshold.

The pre-sales campaign of the Motion forks on Kickstarter ended 3 weeks ago with close to 60,000 Euros of commitments. Most Kickstarter projects are fully funded for lower amounts but we voluntarily set a much higher threshold.

 

This threshold enabled us to assure purchasers that we would be able to finance investment and production costs in France with a view to delivery announced mid-2017.

 

The threshold not being reached, what will happen ?

 

Thanks to a large communication by the press, Motion is known worldwide. Precursors ride our prototypes. Pilots start trusting us express their interest. The technology is validated and last adjustments to be made are clearly identified and in progress.

 

The post-Kickstarter situation simply forces us to redefine our development strategy and use other forms of financing to complement pre-sales. For now, we are no longer talking about pre-sales but a kind of commitment for those who are considering buying a Motion fork as soon as we can confirm the start of production and a delivery date. An online registration form is available on the “Products” page of our website www.motion-france.com so that we can contact you as soon as we are ready.

 

We can’t give you any information about our new development strategy right now but we will communicate as soon as possible. Anyway, we can tell you that we are still planning to deliver the first Motion forks mi-2017.

 

Many thanks to all of you for you support and your enthusiasm.

 

The Motion Team.
