Man in Motion is the fifth studio album released in 1988 by the hard rock/arena rock band Night Ranger. Original Night Ranger keyboardist Alan Fitzgerald had left the band prior to recording sessions for the album, and new keyboardist Jesse Bradman is featured as his replacement. This effort would be their last studio album with bassist/vocalist Jack Blades and guitarist Jeff Watson until Neverland in 1997.
