MZ Skorpion 660 Tour

The company has based its recent upon a variety of single-cylinder — from sidecar to sportbikes and dualsports, MZ has bet the Zschopau on the appeal of thumpers.

In fact, the of a single-cylinder powerplant for the Skorpian represents commitment to a design of simplicity and light weight. saving measures are evidenced single front disc small rear disc no cumbersome fairings or excess and a single round headlight to your way. At 416 pounds to ride, as is claimed in the owner’s the Skorpion Tour is a lithe, machine.

The entire Skorpion shares the same frame, a simple tubular deltabox that was penned by London house Seymour Powell. The steel tube design is near the steering head, and to a bolt-on plate that the motor, frame and swingarm The motor, incidentally, is a stressed of the chassis.

The engine — outsourced Yamaha — may be stressed but with a claimed 48 horsepower at RPM it’s definitely not stressed in the department. The carburetion on our test seemed off at lower revs, but up once the tach passed unfortunately, by the time you reach point you’ve already through the bottom and mid-range of the band. After all, the only winds out to 6800

Although the engine spins up it does not make much near redline or beyond. the exhaust and rejetting the carburetor no doubt improve the throttle of the bike, as well as provide power. Racers using the Yamaha SRX 600 motor claim can coax almost 70 hp out of their similar tuning tricks be applied to the MZ’s 660cc with equally good

While power wheelies may not be the Skorpion’s low weight and agile can provide plenty of excitement the going gets twisty. Our mount came shod Pirelli Dragons, 110/70/ZR17 and 150/60/ZR17 rear, which us with their level of and durability underneath the Skorpion. The suspension is non-adjustable but proved to be stable and compliant.

It was plush to travel with, yet firm to complement the handling. The rear has four spring preload we stayed on the second softest which provided good with the front set-up. MZ positions one through three as and two through four for heavy and/or passengers.

The Skorpion’s whoa-power comes a gigantic 316mm front coupled with a Grimeca piston caliper and master The front brakes had very initial bite, and if pulled with two fingers, result in an stoppie. Out back you’ll a race-inspired miniature two-piston caliper squeezing a 240mm

Both calipers are adorned premium steel-braided lines, better feel and performance standard rubber units.

The of the Skorpion can be easily altered to suit your size or style. The clip-on handlebars are in three planes, and can be moved to a of positions. Whether you are sport commuting, or touring there is an chance you can find a setting be right for you.

The footpegs are also adjustable, moving them will a different shift linkage obtainable from the dealer. The is fairly comfortable, but its squarish continues a bit too far forward, feeling too near the tank. For a single bike thumping along the MZ did a good job controlling vibrations, as is felt through the bars, and slight vibration through the allowing a rider to continue for hundred miles without disturbed by numbness.

The Skorpion’s approach yields a complete that was enjoyable to ride. The of power (our test poor carburetion certainly not can be remedied to a point of satisfaction, and to a that would surprise sportbike owners in the canyons. The attention to smaller details it a great choice for those an alternative mount, or for newer looking for a bike they can that retains a high fun

Overall, the Skorpion Tour is an competent machine whose approach often yields results. For as many good as our bike had, it could be a strong competitor to motorcycles the GS500, EX500 and Seca II. it’s priced into a higher realm with its MSRP. Can an almost-exotic bike buyers to spend the same of money as they would for a cylinder 600cc supersport

We fear the Skorpion faces a akin to the Honda Hawk GT a bike that sold until Honda dealers its price, finally creating a following. The Skorpion Tour be lucky if it gets such a but we bet MZ could stir up interest if offered pricing closer to the Japanese competition.
