Moto Morini had to come up with something special for the 2009 EICMA show and an upgraded version of their Granpasso turned out to be the solution, such as these first photos of the new bike reveal.
Built on the platform of the standard Granpasso – their big adventure tourer – the SM will have a more aggressive riding position and feature new suspension and braking systems, sporty wheels and tires as well as a different exhaust system to help retune the engine. Sounds like Moto Morini created the Granpasso 1200 SM for the supermoto track, but don’t really think that the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 has serious reasons to worry about.
Moto Morini has set their eyes on the adventure segment and the Granpasso 1200 model is the best example in this concern. The 2009 model year was brand new and they’ve already found new ways to improve the overall 2010 product, meaning that the competition can already start worrying.
Whether used for touring, off-road or battling city traffic, Granpasso 1200 is dedicated to the motorcyclist who racks up miles, wants a comfortable ride and ventures into places where there’s no trace of asphalt. He uses the bike to manoeuvre the streets, but that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for some fun. Moto Morini introduces its interpretation of the road Enduro, a multitasking, versatile bike suited for touring but that has the racing imprint that’s part of the DNA of all Moto Morini bikes.
