Moto Morini Production Shuts Down moto morini tank 1 635x437

UPDATE: Moto Morini has responded to other reports that the Italian company has shut its doors, and instead says its production line is at a greatly diminished capacity.

After going into receivership a few months ago, Moto Morini has found its financial stability withering away as time marches-on. With no end in sight for the company’s blight, Moto Morini has shutdown its production line, and will remain in that state until a new buyer or group of investors emerge and breath life back into the small Italian brand.

This news almost certainly means the death rattle for the 2010 Moto Morini Granferro 1200, which was debuted at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. The Granferro 1200 is the latest addition to the Moto Morini line, borrowing heavily from the Granpasso 1200. With this news today, it is uncertain if we’ll ever see the bike in a showroom, let alone in the US.
