Moto Morini Granferro revealed in Milan

18th November 2009

Moto Morini Granferro revealed in MilanMoto Morini revealed their eagerly awaited Granferro 'hypermotard' at the Milan motorcycle show. Billed as a "fun bike without compromise" it is powered by the Italian manufacturer's exuberant twin-cylinder CorsaCorta 1187cc V-Twin, featuring forged pistons measuring 107 mm - the largest ever manufactured for a bike in this category - with a stroke of 66 mm. Equipped with a double exhaust too, the Graferro delivers over 125 hp at the crankshaft.

Designed by Rodolfo Frascoli (of Marabese Design), the front aspect is strongly characterised by the parallel twin spotlights astride the mini fairing. which protects the instrument panel and extends into a nose cone, marking the Granferro's aggressive profile.

The tank, derived from the Granpasso adventure sport model, has a 27-litre capacity, unlike typical 'motard' bikes, allowing owners to use the bike in a more versatile manner, with great potential for medium and long trips too.

All components are from top quality suppliers - 17" wheels with light alloy rims, brakes with enbloc callipers, fully adjustable front forks and rear mono-shock and carbon fibre bodywork.

Production is scheduled for April 2010, for delivery to UK showrooms in May. It is expected to sell for between £12,500-£13,000.
