Moto Morini 1200 Review

Moto Morini Corsaro

Moto Morini from the … at the Bologna last December, with the of two new models powered by the company’s liquid-cooled 87-degree V-twin, short-… motor. It’s after viewing the Moto company up close, that are a very serious operation. are already 73 employees in place at the sqm.

Moto Morini Production is now under way employing the Porsche-inspired so-called ‘lean method, based on just-in-time and with three workers responsible for the assembly of each They follow it through start to finish as the cart mounted on tours the factory’s component shelves.

Ihad had the chance last year to one of the two well-worn Moto Morini Corsaro prototypes, which between them covered than 100,000 km. So it was illuminating to a day with the final production the week before the July launch. How well had Moto transformed what, six months ago was a very impressive motorcycle, a customer-ready product?

The Corsaro’s low 830mm seat height allow riders of any stature, especially, to feel at home on the Morini, and for a six-foot rider a comfortable if quite upright which lets you see very over traffic to plot next rush hour on the Bologna Tangenzionale. I found the ideally placed to let my knees into the flanks of the distinctly 18-litre fuel tank, a great sense of control.

The one-piece taper-section handlebar is to 50mm risers cast the upper triple clamp. are 50mm upside down forks. Cranking the Corsaro fast sweeping turns on the del Sole heading over the to Firenze was extremely satisfying, it held a line well over sealing joints or frost-ravaged surfaces, and the quite sprung big Marzocchi forks and rear shock combined to good ride quality, ironing out undue road surprisingly well, in spite of stiff settings.

The reason the wears quite a hard is surely due to the meaty characteristics of the 1187cc Moto Morini engine. Not only does it a wide spread of power, a massive 140 bhp at the crank at 8500 but also a huge amount of at almost any revs. There’s 123 Nm at rpm.

You can gas the CorsaCorta motor wide in top gear at 2500 rpm, and pull hard and strong in linear mode all the way through to the 9300 rpm revlimiter. This is unexpected for such a heavily ultra short-… engine, you’d normally expect to to rev quite hard to obtain kind of performance.

The flexible and engine character means you have to use the gearbox nearly as as you might expect with short …, since the motor is especially happy to in the 4,000-7,000 rpm area. You find surfing the torque curve to a gear over a twisty of road, interspersed with straights. There’s an average of rpm between each of the evenly top three gears, and in fact this kind of engine there’s really no need for gear ratios in the six-speed cluster.

Back In Business

thing I noticed when I the starter is how quiet the engine is. isn’t the mechanical racket you get many Ducati engines, for whether desmodue or Testastretta of the whirrs and rattles and general that’s always been of owning a desmo V-twin. The Morini CorsaCorta motor is not much quieter, it also more refined when to itself at idle with an lilt through the twin Termignoni exhausts.

They deliver a great note, but are not exactly eye candy, to the requirements of Euro 3. The European police rules require the fat which inevitably prompt a speech bubble ‘Does my look big in this?’ Expect Morini customers to sign up for the Termignoni carbon cans will be available in the extensive aftermarket catalogue being at the Milan Show in November.

The Corsaro’s meaty, muscular makes power wheelies embarrassingly easy to pull by winding on the throttle in the bottom gears. Top-gear roll-on is too, with an extra of engine acceleration from rpm onwards. The Morini big twin the Benelli TNT 1130 as the ultimate musclebike par excellence. In practice the Morini feels exactly a Honda, Suzuki or Ducati V-twin in terms of vibration, or of it.

It’s also pretty yet composed at high speeds for a roadster. I saw 7800 rpm in sixth or around 230 kph, with stability.

The legendary Connection which GP dream of is present in abundance You can feel with your hand exactly how much is reaching the tarmac, via the rear Diablo. You soon learn to how much confidence the well-sorted, chassis with its 51/49 distribution gives you. the stiff suspension didn’t the Corsaro skip or jump unduly on rougher surfaces.

think of many better for the ultimate Sunday morning into the Alps or Peak or San Gabriel Mountains, especially they fit the production exhaust Conventional rather than Brembo four-pot calipers the 320mm front discs. The follows the Massimo Tamburini of thought that a non-radial is better for everyday street use a radial one, especially on a bike.

There’s excellent from the Morini’s brake especially when you use the slipper to help access the meaty braking delivered by those cylinders and the 11.8: 1 compression.

In Business

I can’t avoid this, my initial impressions riding the prototype Moto musclebike seven months have now been reaffirmed riding the production version. is as a potent new contender in the flourishing sports market which is up 33 per in Europe over the past This is thanks to sales not of the middleweight J-bikes which the sector, but also bigger-engined like the Yamaha MT-01, Tuono, Benelli TnT, Speed Triple 1050, and of the grandaddy of them all, the Monster in all its various guises.

Though Ducati’s new product boss Claudio Domenicali that We don’t see Moto as representing any serious competition to us, I beg to after riding the 1200 in customer-ready guise. For this every sign of being a which will give even more of a headache in years than has the MV Agusta F4. The range is the American owned cash cow, which up some other less products.

The MV remains the bike the 916-to-998 Ducati model have evolved into, but or didn’t. Now here’s Moto with a Monster competitor increased performance, a more mechanical package, and at lower Just wait, after the 1200 Corsaro, you’ll to pinch yourself to be convinced isn’t the more modern re-engineered Evo version of the Monster Ducati really should built any time in the past years.

Maybe now they’ll have to.
