Milan Show: Moto Morini Granpasso wants a slice of the big trailie market

Moto Morini has revealed its new Granpasso big trailie at the Milan show.

The Granpasso is the third bike to be added to the reborn Moto Morini range, and is based around the same basic frame and engine seen on current machines but with bodywork and chassis parts to turn it into a new model in its own right.

The bike is powered by the same 1187cc 90° v-twin found in Morini’s other models, and is largely the same as the 140bhp Corsaro, though Morini says some changes have been made to improve low rpm delivery and power, as well as improving fuel economy.

The frame is almost identical to the Corsaro’s tubular steel trellis, but with a new subframe to suit the different seat. The swingarm is a curved aluminium design formed with hydraulic pressure to minimise the need for welding. The swingarm operates an offset fully-adjustable Ohlins shock absorber, which is matched at the front by long travel 50mm Marzocchi forks.

The bike should cost around £8500 when it goes on sale in 2008. It will be available in this black/titanium colour scheme or black/white.

See all the details of the Granpasso and all the other new bikes from the Milan show in MCN, on sale November 7.

Don't forget there are 28 new motorcycle launches, in MCN, Wednesday, November 7, 2007.
