The guys from Vardenchi released the first details about their upcoming project which is based on a Moto Morini model.
The new T5 Custom Roadster will be fully revealed at the Auto Expo in New Delhi, but for the moment, the custom workshop revealed only a sketch of their creation.
At the heart of the T5 motorcycle will sit Moto Morini’s 1,187cc unit which is mounted on a modern trellis frame that offers a perfect compromise between rigidity and lightness. We also know that the new T5 will use LED technology for the headlights and tail lights, Marzocchi USD forks, Brembo brakes and Ohlins shocks.
In terms of style, we especially like the fluid lines of the fuel tank which is a perfect match for the curvy fenders and the fat tires. The good part is that the new custom motorcycle will also be available in Europe through Moto Morini’s dealers. The expected price for the Indian market is rated at RS 16 lakh ($25,595).
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.
There has always been a special something about naked European motorcycles and the recently announced 2010 Moto Morini Corsaro 1200 Veloce is the Italian motorcycle manufacturer’s demonstration of power as veloce means high-speed in Italian. This tends to make the bike even more special and increase our interest regarding it.
Moto Morini never misses a chance to amaze the motorcycling public and we should give the small Italian manufacturer the credit it fairly won by being consequent and trusty.
For 2008 it is all about the new launches, the Scrambler and 1200 Sport, which have just gotten their official pictures taken and are ready to impress not only with the looks, but with the attitude, also.
The bikes made their entry at the Padova Motorcycle Show two weekends ago and were presented as being derived from (...)
The name 9 1/2 is an homage to the legendary 3 1/2 twin cylinder of the 1970s. However, it is also acknowledgement of a common thread running between two projects separated in time. The 9 1/2 in fact is the motorcycle whose style, rational design and technological innovation most closely interpret the spirit of that Morini machine. The easy handling, the rational approach to the technical solutions and their efficiency as a result are features that both motorcycles share and that are undeniably a part of Moto Morini’s DNA.
