In the new model only its name and rebel appeal are the same: the on/off road Moto Morini Scrambler 1200 presented at Eicma in Milan in its MY2018 version has seen a complete redesign. Starting from the chassis, through to the engine and its appearance. But the spirit of such a motorcycle, unstoppable and outside traditional boundaries, has remained intact. It is the third model in the new 2018 range, alongside the Corsaro ZZ and the new Milano, and shares with them a commitment to “made in Italy”: not only in the assembly, entirely carried out by the Morini engineers at the factory in Trivolzio (PV), but also in the choice of materials and components.
The history of Moto Morini with their on/off road bikes began at the Milan Motor Show back in 1965 with the Corsaro Regolarità, an all-terrain variant of the famous 125, which immediately made a name for itself in off-road racing, at both national and international level, by winning important championships.
Likewise with the new Scrambler 1200. Uncompromising in appearance, inspired by the on / off road bikes of the nineteen-seventies and characterized by a pure scrambler style: extensive use of aluminium, a one-piece saddle, high handlebars and 17-inch wheels fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres (for the first time in these dimensions). At the same time, taking a closer look, the choices made by the designer Angel Lussiana are based on both the actual vintage aesthetics but using modern touches that project the image of the Moto Morini Scrambler 1200 into the future: details such as the saddle pointing upwards towards the rear, the notably long side covers, and the digital dashboard with a 5-inch screen.
