2010 Moto Morini Veloce 1200


Mention Bologna and Italian and you will be forgiven if you think of first. Just a short from the Borgo Panigale Red, there is another Italian motorcycle manufacturer produces big bore V-twin Morini.

Its flagship model is the 1200, and I have tested the of them all–the Corsaro 1200.

Alfonso Morini Moto Morini in 1937 and the began building motorcycles in The first Corsaro was introduced in and the first Corsaro Veloce in

1961 was also the year Agostini started his long career, first as a privateer on a in hill climbing, and then in for Morini as a factory rider. In Silvio Berlusconi’s brother purchased Moto Morini for million.

The modern Moto Morini Veloce features a mighty engineered 1187cc, 87-degree, V-twin. Veloce means speed in Italian and, 140 horsepower @ 8500 rpm and 91 ft/lbs @ rpm, the Corsaro is fast

The midrange is mammoth, and the feel of the is as if a big twin Harley met a Ducati slightly above the middle. The is hugely impressive, and I think to that this is how a 1200cc TL would have felt in a good chassis.

While a Streetfighter is highly strung in the Corsaro Veloce features a meaty rev range. In many engines you’ll find a spot somewhere in the rev range–the Veloce 1200′s rev range is one big spot throughout. It’s a delight to use the throttle both on low and on revs.

Toward 8000 rpm, the gets seriously light and a slight blip of throttle the wheel.

The seat is quite and the riding position on the sporty The Corsaro Veloce’s 432 pounds slightly heavy, but also solid. With that big twin thundering underneath me, old-fashioned proper V-twin exit the double Termignoni silencers.

Moto Morini’s CorsaCorta is nowhere near as advanced as Ducati’s Testastretta There’s not enough cash in Morini to compete at the top end, but for the feel of that engine, I it a serious props against technology. The big bore cylinders are under control by a beautifully Verlicchi tubular steel that is connected to a solid aluminum swingarm.

The fully adjustable 50mm fork and Ohlins rear are only found on the Veloce, with racing rear and exhaust silencers. The brakes are four-piston calipers of the previous but they are still very While being powerful the Corsaro would have from the latest generation of Brembo’s.

It’s the one detail makes the Corsaro Veloce look more dated it is. Pirelli Diablo tires in 120/70-ZR17 and 180/55-ZR17 are fitted to Marchesini wheels.

Through the twisty hills Bologna, I can ride the Veloce like a full on sportbike. only the wide streetfighter-style that separates the Corsaro from a full on sportbike in style. The beautifully balanced doesn’t pass on too much to the handlebars, and the mirrors are mostly

I think the six-speed gearbox had abused a fair bit before I got a on the only test bike from the factory because it always easy to find Apart from that the worked fine. The slipper prevented the rear wheel locking up on downshifts.

The Moto Morini Corsaro is basically a big beautiful brute of an surrounded by a gorgeous tubular frame. All that torque very early rpm left me addicted to the 1187cc CorsaCorta V-twin.

It feels richer and in a more brutal Neanderthal way other performance twins. If Wayne had been alive, be riding a Corsaro Veloce–it is a man’s bike. Slightly and under developed due to Moto financial troubles, it is still a motorcycle with dollops of
