Moto Morini Milano unveiled
Italian manufacturer Moto Morini have just taken the wraps off the Milano, a new model which the firm say is a new take on the classic 31/2.
The new model is powered by the Bialbero Corsa Corta 1187cc V-twin designed by Franco Lambertini - who also designed the 344cc V-twin for the 31/2in 1969. The engine has been modified slightly to deliver a more relaxing ride, but it still makes a claimed 110bhp - down from 139bhp in the Corsaro ZZ.
The engine is housed in a trellis frame familiar to Moto Morini fans, although it has ben modofied slightly for better handling, regardless of the rider's experience. There's a new single-sided trellis swingarm holding on to the forged aluminium rear wheel.
The fork legs are machined from a solid block and are adjustable for compression, rebound and preload. At the end of the forks are two four-piston monoblock radial calipers that bite 320mm floating discs.
At the rear the shock was designed specifically for Moto Morini and is fully adjustable for compression, rebound and preload. There's a two-piston caliper biting a 220mm disc at the back. ABS is taken care of by the Bosch 9.1 MP system, and can be switched off via a button on the switchgear.
Despite the classic style there's a five inch display up front providing all the information you need while riding.
Availability and price will be announced at a later date.
