The Moto Morini Scrambler was built on the foundation of the 9 ½ project and was especially developed for crossover use. In its off road adventures, the motorcycle is helped by its massive 19 inch front and 17 inch rear wheels which are wrapped in tread-blocked tyres.

As far as design goes, the Scrambler looks pretty good featuring a rugged, but pretty modern style. The 21 liter tank is one of the most striking styling elements and has a sporty and ergonomic design which is not intrusive for the rider. Taking about riding position is worthy of being mentioned that the seat forms a single piece with the streamlined tail and is fairly comfortable.

Power comes from a 1187 cc, liquid cooled engine which delivers 86 Kw (117 HP) @ 8500 rpm and 102 Nm (10.4 Kgm) of torque @ 6700 rpm.

The Corsaro model has a long history behind it, as the first generation was launched back 1959. Since then, the model was constantly upgraded and today is one of the most capable motorcycles in its class.

The Corsaro 1200 Veloce is the sporty version of the Corsaro 1200 and its name means high speed in Italian. The secret behind the Corsaro 120 Veloce’s sporty personality is of course its engine. The Bialbero CorsaCorta unit is as advanced as Ducati’s Testastretta engine and delivers 140 horsepower at 8500rpm and 123 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine needs to deal with a total weight of only 196 kilos, so you can expect to great performances.

The ride is kept in check by a 50mm fully adjustable Marzocchi fork which is combined with a rear Ohlins shock. The bike sits on Diablo tires in sizes 120/70-ZR17 and 180/55-ZR17 and the stopping power is assured by Brembo brakes.

Moto Morini presented this new model at the Motormotorcycle Expo in Verona, with a new graphic style and a black and orange design on its white frame. Attractive looks notwithstanding, the Moto Morini 1200 Sport is a bike that’s been built to impress, thanks in large part to the company’s powerful 1187cc v-twin engine that produces a tidy 117 horsepower.

Apart from the engine, the bike’s chassis is another point of pride for Moto Morini, with its front forks derived from the company’s Marzocchi line and rounded out with a set of 17" Excel wheels fitted with sport-touring rubber tires. In terms of looks, the Moto Morini 1200 Sport’s classic naked styling is a perfect match to its attractive look.

Design guru Oberdan Bezzi has thought at a rather strange, but definitely interesting way to create a whole new V-twin powered Italian motorcycle. Called MMB1, the bike would come as the result of joined forces between Moto Morini and Bimota. The strange part is that MM would have to supply the engine on a bike to be sold with the Bimota name and logo on, but the thing does look plausible.

Our advice: don’t take it to seriously. Moto Morini was recently saved from bankruptcy by Paolo Berlusconi, so this is just Obiboi trying to guess where the company is heading now.

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 long been preparing the supermoto version of the Granpasso and these first pics that we came across confirm the all-new bike’s upcoming official unveiling at the EICMA show. The pictures belong to Italian news site Motociclismo, which’s tester took the unfinished version of the Grand Motard for a spin.

Although we’ll have to say that this looks ready for the Italian manufacturer’s EICMA stand, they’re still talking code names such as “V12M01″ for the new machine that will be powered by an upgraded version of the Granpasso water-cooled 1187cc 87° V-twin motor. This will develop 127hp, 9 ponies more than on the adventure bike.

MM may have aimed towards a sporty style and character for their new motorcycle, but they also retained the best of the Granpasso , which is the 7-gallon fuel tank. This means more supermoto fun with fewer stops for gas. Expect us to bring more information and the official shots as they arrive.

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.
