We present a solution obeying classical equation of motion in the low energy limit of heterotic string theory. The solution represents a rotating mass with electric charge and gravitomagnetic monopole moment. The corresponding conserved charges are discussed, and the separability of Hamilton–Jacobi equation for a test body in the spacetime is also investigated. Some numerical results related to the circular motions on equatorial plane are presented, but there is none that supports the existence of such geodesics.
