Moto Morini 1200 Veloce


2008 Morini 1200 Corsaro

Predatory and purposeful in its look and the new Moto Morini 1200 veloce (in effect the SP version of the Corsaro) is a street fighter to be with. Equipped with all the and necessary equipment to make it a you don’t really want to get

The newly revived, now wholly owned factory at Marabese in which after investment into the original family from the Cagiva group in has drawn on its heritage and produced a modern V- twin motorcycle is such a grin to ride almost painful.

The Corsaro is the 5th new in the small but perfectly formed line up that once started production three ago.

A quick straw of bikers I came into with over the ‘Corsaro either hadn’t heard of Morini at all or only remembered the legendary 3-Half sport and was the extent of their knowledge. A of out of sight out of mind.

Unlike for instance that is enjoying a renaissance, Moto Morini ever made is mark in the of the few and though still lovingly by the cognoscenti, their numbers are and the modern motorcycle audience has up without the brand presence the last 20 years.

It didn’t all and sundry admiring the revival in fact whilst at a rather auto jumble that it drew a sizeable audience, no doubt by the purposeful profile but more by the exhaust note by the under seat mufflers.

3X motorcycles who had supplied the bike equipped their demonstrator un-baffled Termignoni’s and the accompanying ECU produced a ‘well proper’ noise. This played a part in my affection for the machine the weekend, popping and blarting across the Romney Marsh of the Kent countryside.

It wasn’t (to me anyway), and it really enhanced the from the 1200cc V-twin

The standard items on the standard are fat organ pipes of quiet conforming to the usual Euro and aesthetically in the eye of this beholder from the overall profile.

The at £9,900 new would have to be digging a little deeper the bank manager’s pocket to these performance pipes, not to a fine Ohlins rear unit, which replaces the Sachs unit, slipper and Brembo equipment.

If I was looking for a fighter with bags of I could easily be cajoled purchasing this black of a motorcycle.

The motor is not just an 87 degree V-twin motor it is a Lambertini designed Bialberto motor — Oh Yes!

The POS tells us that since left Ferrari in 1970, all the engines are his by design. Well you are to be congratulated.

The motor is smooth, not at all in its power delivery, I couldn’t much vibration to speak of, the rolled in a steady and increasingly wave of pure fun with no in the fuelling, (apparently a common on earlier models).

Peak power is reached at revs by which time the suspension and tyres have to with 140hp of absolute and hedonistic drive.

What marks this bike as Well, the frame is a steel (hard to find as a production outside of Italy), it’s a mechanized two wheel national piece, the nation as a whole have the worldwide patents for design style.

Using the as a stressed member and allied to the one cast aluminum no frills arm the mean black chassis razor sharp handling a wheelbase and rake that pin point aim and sure footedness.

The forks are Marzocchi units, gripped by a muscular triple bottom yoke, fully for rebound compression and spring at 50mm diameter.

I personally suspension is a bit of a black art, so with factory settings at one end affects the ride at the other, you are a guru in this department my it to leave well alone and the factory settings.

The factory set up is good, firm but pliant at I had no desire to feck about and with either the front, or Ohlins suspension. It delivered excellent performance right out of the — Its amazing how did they my weight and the way I was going to ride it?

Naturally the faster you go, the quicker you to stop.

I have to say I didn’t test the brakes to a maximum, the braking and slipper clutch care of most of the deceleration, In riding pal and fellow UKBike ‘The Coghurst Boy’ on the lack of illumination from the rear lens, querying an fault.

Following on his beautiful KTM it was noticeable how little I used the apparently.

We swapped bikes in to gain a comparison, when we roughly twenty miles the route, he knew why.

His KTM soft and almost sports compared with the taut and ride of the Morini.

If called play though re-assurance was by a pair of 320mm double not equipped with almost de mono block sports oriented calipers but standard pot Brembo units, (mustn’t The skinny brake lines Kevlar re-enforced- couldn’t the actual spec) probably also

Comfortable? The wide and upright riding position became uncomfortable on one part of my and this was only at speed.

My muscles took a bit of a battering but at speeds I’m not prepared to state in

At average ‘hoon’ velocity it an issue. No arse ache, no ache, no leg ache, in fact but an ergonomically comfortable ride. The must have far-sighted my and build and tailored it exactly to I found comfortable, again — how do they do it?

I managed to cover just 650miles in four days and it was a handing the keys back.

Moto Morini Corsaro 1200

from the cockpit was of the open I had to consciously make an effort to the information displayed on the digi and rev counter dial, to be honest on the road I paid very attention to any of it.

I don’t need sort of information when on a I’m usually too wrapped up in the ride to about random numbers, feel and the soulful experience harsh and unerring information modern technology delivers days.

Call me vain and confident but after twenty years of virtually continual I think I can judge when I’m too quick for the conditions I’m in without to refer too much to the plethora of that is available.

Riding a to me is about the visceral experience not the data!

In town naturally it sense to behave revs and critical, but the bike behaved

I do have a criticism though, the of the dash was such that in sunlight (much like the 1098 I rode a few weeks rendered the information hard to

My personal view is that all should be focussed on the way ahead, if it me a few extra seconds to focus on the of information supplied which is greater if I want to stab the mode switch repeatedly, taken my eye off the road.

Again call me vain, but I was of the brand spanking new tyres before my arrival and the light I rode away in.

Chicken were not an option, I had two days to them in and have the confidence to my amateur head up high the vanguard of proper paid up journalists who had borrowed and no doubt the wheels off the bike as I had tried to do.

I’m (I suppose you could say smug) the bike was returned spattered decimated swarms of Kentish fly and a non shiny surface over the of the rear tyre at least.

The Diablos were adequate but for the level, or, an impromptu track stickier tyres should be the of the day. (Quite how much you’d get however is another but power and control and all that marketing stuff, would be as a truism on this bike I

My wallet is empty and the planet is no a few degrees warmer, it’s a big bore 1200cc motor fed by Marelli fuel injection and a meagre (for any lengthy tank capacity of 3.9 UK gallons is just under 18 litres, tank range about 110 for very nearly twenty pounds.

Frankly though my I don’t give a damn the mpg. The bike was a blast to and because I’m restricted to a word (inevitably breached), I merely you to consider this bike in next purchasing process. be put off by the relatively obscure name, it with a wealth of heritage a year warranty, bristles top kit that you’d only to shell out for extra on a cheaper and has the added kudos of exclusivity.

And that absolutely perfect aural signature….

Wanna try Talk to the top geezers at3X Italian centre. they can in black, red (looks well and |I believe they do a yellow, similar to the Triumph gold of livery.

If you are considering a Ducati (which I believe are in very supply at present), KTM Duke, Speed Triple, Buell etc do a favour, don’t buy until spread your wings on a Morini Corsaro Veloce
