Moto Morini has revamped its Ganrpasso 1200 model for 2014. The new model comes with a fresh Carbon look, new passenger handle grips, an integrated rack and a new plate holder.
At the heart of the motorcycle lies a potent V twin oversquare engine, which features one-piece central sump, mixed gear-chain drive and dual overhead camshaft. The unit is paired with a six speed transmission and delivers a maximum power of 118 hp at 8400 rpm and 103.6 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm.
The engine is housed by a high tensile tubular steel trellis frame which is paired with a Marzocchi Upside Down fork and a fully adjustable Ohlins shock absorber.
The stopping power is handled by a modern Brembo breaking system which includes 298 mm double-discs at the front and a rear 255 mm mono-disc.

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.
Yet another star from the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany is the 2009 Moto Morini Scrambler, a high displacement naked bike that shares its class with the Triumph having the same name.
The Moto Morini is indeed a fierce competitor thanks to its 1187cc V-Twin engine and tough looks, which makes us wonder when the English maker will make its 2009 comeback.
Featuring 19-inch wheels dressed in off-road rubber and supported by Marzocchi inverted forks with many protective attachments, the Moto Morini Scrambler is the perfect companion from where the asphalt ends. Equipped with Brembo brakes, it will provide the best of stopping power, but on that same surface, something that makes us tend to call the Triumph Scrambler a better all-around bike. But we will wait to see for ourselves what the Morini can do and we’ll then give a verdict.
