You wouldn’t know it by looking at Moto Morini’s website, or by the materials they handed out at EICMA, but the Italian company has officially launched its street-tard version of its Granpasso platform. While we spotted the 2010 Moto Morini Granferro 1200 out in the wild before EICMA, the show in Milan provided us a good opportunity to see the bike up-close. Photos and more after the jump.
You may remember that we brought you some of the first shots of the Moto Morini 1200cc motard taking some test laps back in August. Now with an up-close look at the bike, Italian news site Motociclismo has gotten a chance to ride the new Moto Morini motard ahead of its EICMA unveiling.
Code-named the “V12M01”, the new street-tard has yet to be officially designated, but “Grand Motard” seems to be a fun play on the bike’s Granpasso roots. Regardless of the name, the new motard will feature the same Granpasso water-cooled 1187cc 87° v-twin motor, but power will be bumped from the Passo’s 118hp, to a slightly less anemic 127hp.
