Moto Morini New Middle-Weight Adventure Bike Teaser image released by Moto Morini of their new middle-weight adventure bike model to be unveiled at EICMA 2019.

Italian manufacturer Moto Morini has announced it is set to launch an all-new mid-displacement platform. Full details are being kept under wraps at this time but Moto Morini confirms the platform will be used in new middle-weight Adventure Bike and Naked models to be revealed this November during the EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

Displacement and other specs are unknown but there is some speculation that the engine will be a V-Twin. Other than that, Moto Morini simply adds that the platform is “Dedicated to all those who want to experience the emotion of riding a Morini and feel part of the Golden Eagle brand.”  To further tease the announcement, they have released a silhouette drawing of the Adventure Bike model featuring wire-spoke wheels. 

Although lesser known here in the states, Moto Morini is one of the most famous brands in the Italian motorcycle scene. Founded in 1937 by Alfonso Morini, the historic brand is steeped in racing history. After going bankrupt in 2010, the company was successfully relaunched around 2012. The new owners of Moto Morini worked hard to recreate the brand and position it at the premium end of the market.

Moto Morini currently offers several styles of motorcycles, including the Granpasso 1200 adventure bike. The Granpasso 1200 is powered by a 1187cc liquid-cooled V-Twin housed in a tubular steel trellis frame, which is paired with a Marzocchi upside down fork and a fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock. It comes in either wire-spoked or cast rim version and produces 118 horsepower and 78 ft-lbs of torque.

In August of 2018, the Italian owners of Moto Morini sold 100% of the company to the Zhongneng Vehicle Group of China. With its vast production capabilities and commercial experience in the two-wheeler sector, Zhongneng plans to develop new opportunities while safeguarding and strengthening the Golden Eagle brand. Moto Morini is expected to remain on Italian soil and Zhongneng plans to develop both existing products and introduce several new models. We can only hope that their plans also include bringing the Moto Morini brand here to the states in the near future.

We’ll have more to share about the new middle-weight Moto Morini Adventure Bike in early November. The bike will also be on display at EICMA from the 5th-10th of November.
