Eicma 2021, Moto Morini attacking the “medium”

Cars News

Nude, but not raw. The Moto Morini Seiemmezzo are the novelty of the House of Trivolzio, which has also placed the X-Cape (same engine), already presented this summer in Sardinia and designed to please the off-road public. With these three medium-displacement motorcycles, the brand founded in 1937 in Bologna and for three years in Chinese hands (Zhongneng Vehicle Group) wants to enter the most dynamic two-wheeler market trying to steal space above all from Japanese competitors, the most aggressive in the sector. .

Seiemmezzo is the first to attract attention, with a line taken from the Super Scrambler 1200, presented a year ago. But the two-wheeler of medium displacement was designed in two versions: the “miniature” of the 1200 with high exhausts and scapigliata air “All terrain”, next to the Str (which is fine to abbreviate Stradale or Street), with a modern, but more sober line. The 649 cc inline twin. liquid-cooled, it develops a power of 60 horsepower at 8250 rpm, with emissions approved to comply with the regulations Euro 5. For both models, the dry weight is 200 kilos and the front wheel has an 18-inch rim, a cross between the road 17 and the more off-road 19. The saddle is 810 mm high from the ground, allowing even motorcyclists not very high to drive the Seiemmezzo without worries of mind. Note also i full led headlights and TFT display 5-inch color, which also allows you to manage a phone and two headsets at the same time.

The price in the two versions has not yet been defined.

For the X-Cape, the “crossover” vocation is indicated by the high line (saddle at 845 millimeters from the ground) and by the 19-inch front wheel, with spoked rim. The Tft screen is 7 inches with the possibility to choose between 4 display graphics. Among the functions offered, then, there is also the real-time detection of the tire pressure. The X-Cape also wants to satisfy the public interested in making some trips and for this reason it offers a windshield that can be adjusted with one hand (even on the move). The engine is the same as the Seiemmezzo cousin, but the tank holds three liters more (reaches 18).

Prices range from 7090 to 7290 eurosdepending on the layout.
