Moto Morini keep it local with their Milano and Scrambler models

One of Italy’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers has paid tribute to the 3 ½ model of the 1970s with the new Scrambler and Milano.

The 344cc is no longer and has been replaced with an 1187cc V-Twin producing 110hp, although they share some integral heritage as the same engineer who designed this new 1187cc was also responsible for the outgoing model.

The Scrambler and the Milano both feature the same components but are styled quite differently, with the Milano sporting a more laid back café racer look with the bar-end mirrors and cast wheels, as opposed to the Scrambler which – no surprises here – has regular high mirrors, wire-spoked wheels and obligatory, knobbly tyres.

Morini proudly claim that the hand built bikes are 99% Italian –  with all of the components being supplied by Italian companies. Both new models come with Brembo brakes, Pirelli tyres and Mupo suspension. The ABS is a more traditional German affair however, with Bosch being the preferred supplier of the electronic wizardry.

Moto Morini is yet to reveal availability or prices.

    @MotoMorinieu @PirelliMoto A bit embarrassed to say that I didn’t realise Morini were still in business. Good to see.
