Moto Morini has unveiled the new Sport 1200 and Scrambler at the Padova motorcycle show.

Both motorcycles are based on the Moto Morini 9½ Sport, but with different styling and chassis parts to give them a unique appeal.

Both bike used a 117bhp version of Morini’s 1187cc Bialbero Corsacorta engine breathing through a unique twin-silencer exhaust system, and both use the same steel trellis frame with Marzocchi upside down forks with a single offset rear shock absorber, but the Scrambler is fitted with knobbly tyres on a 17” rear and 19” front Excel spoked wheels, whereas the 1200 Sport has 17” Excel rims front and rear fitted with road tyres for maximum grip.

Both use the same bodywork, but different paint schemes help disguise the similarities between the models. The Scrambler comes in black/white with a black frame (with another colour choice to be decided), and the 1200 Sport comes with a white frame and the option of Gulf-style orange/blue or British Racing Green/yellow.

The 1200 Sport is expected to go into production in March, and the Scrambler will be available in the summer. Prices are yet to be announced.
