Moto Morini unveils up-dated Granpasso

Engineers at the Bologna factory have concentrated on ergonomic changes and improvements to the off-road handling of the 118bhp v-twin.

The handlebars have been upgraded with risers that allow greater adjustment, complementing the adjustable screen and allowing owners to tailor the riding position to suit their size/preferred riding position. 

The redesigned seat decreases the riding height and is fitted with a moulded alloy heat shield underneath to screen the rider and the Öhlins rear shock from the single high level silencer.

Morini have homologated the Granpasso for use with knobbly enduro style tyres, giving owners the option to fit dedicated tyres for off-road riding, and fitted high strength iron alloy motocross style footpegs too.  These have removable rubber inserts, allowing riders to customise the bike for road or trail.

New software for injection engine control has been developed and the lambda sensor has been moved to the front cylinder exhaust pipe, delivering smoother response, particularly during the initial opening of the throttle.  The Moto Morini Granpasso sells for £10,499.

UK importers 3X-Motorcycles have expanded the dealer network to 13 outlets, stretching from the Channel Islands to the North of Scotland and across from Essex to West Wales, and have recently launched a brand new website dedicated to Moto Morini.
