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.
