EVEN MORE SPECIAL: MOTO MORINI AT MOTOR BIKE EXPO
DEBUT OF THE NEW E-BIKE RANGE
Verona, 18 January 2018 – Moto Morini returns to the Motor Bike Expo in Verona, from 18 to 21 January 2018. In November, during Eicma, some of the latest products by Moto Morini were launched, namely Milano and the Scrambler 1200; now, at the Motor Bike Expo, it is the turn of the special editions, designed by the One-Off department but not only.
Chief among these is a version of the new Scrambler 1200 with a livery designed in collaboration with Gulf, the historic brand that epitomized the passion for engines and motor sports. That sporting partnership between the blue and orange that adorned the body work of famous cars such as the Ford GT40 or the Porsche 917, three times winner at Le Mans. The very same car that Steve McQueen drove during the world’s most famous 24 Hours and brought to the big screen in 1971. The years in which the passion for racing was visceral and smelled of petrol and risk, the same period in which Moto Morini conquered the world with models like the 3 ½. This was the inspiration behind the bike designed by Angel Lussiana, the Milano, which was also presented at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona.
The designer will also be exhibiting the maquette on which he created the look for the new Moto Morini that carries the name of the economic capital of Italy; moreover, this design model of the Milano will be at the heart of one of the Motor Bike Education meetings within the fair, opportunities for in-depth analysis on themes related to motorcycles that in 2017 involved over 650 students from over 20 institutions and 15 different cities. In addition to the Scrambler 1200 “Gulf” and the Milano, the Corsaro 1200 ZZ MY2018 and the One-Off Corsaro Ti22 will also be back in the spotlight. Finally, a variant of the Corsaro 1200 ZZ designed by the artist Nicola Martini will making an appearance; a motorcycle inspired by the heyday of the café racer, redesigned with the refined elegance and passion that always distinguishes the work of Mr Martini.
In the course of Motor Bike Expo, Moto Morini e-bikes will also be on show, represented by a range of four models designed to suit the individual needs of the new eco-sustainable urban mobility. The City Bike, with luggage racks and leather bags, the Gravel that combines the look of the “fixed gear” bike with sportier handlebars, the Sport with 27.5-inch wheels, and the unstoppable Urban with 26-inch tyres and eye-catching colours. Common to them all is the Zehus “All in one” technology which integrates the motor, battery and electronics in the rear hub; no visible wiring, and no hint that these attractive bicycles are hiding pedal assistance, to move faster both in and outside the city. Another shared feature is the “Frame Block” anti-theft frame: the innovative feature is found in the rubber-coated steel cables that are an integral part of the aluminium frame and act as a quick and effective tamper-resistant device.
