Factory custom parts and accessories have already become a thing with motorcyclists who wish to showcase their individuality with their most prized possession- their ride. And with manufacturers supplying these in-house parts themselves, there is no derailment of quality or fit and finish.
The most recent company to offer such services comes from the Italian Moto Morini. Dubbed as “Yours and Yours Alone”, this handcrafted production allows customers design every detail of their bike with the in-house designers.
The guys from Vardenchi released the first details about their upcoming project which is based on a Moto Morini model.

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.
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.
