Moto Morini Corsaro 1200 Veloce: “It pulls like a locomotive!”

The Moto Morini Corsaro 1200 Veloce. Looks good. Goes hard. And above all, 'it pulls like a locomotive,' so you don't have to do the hard work... ;-)

The guys at SpecialMag recently got to ride the 2008 Moto Morini Corsaro 1200 Veloce at the Misano circuit in Italy, and here’s some of what they had to say about the bike:

The Corsaro 1200 Veloce is fitted with Moto Morini’s 1,187cc ‘Bialbero CorsaCorta’ eight-valve liquid-cooled v-twin, which makes 140 horsepower at 8,500rpm and 123Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. This engine, which breathes out through a Termignoni exhaust system, pulls like a locomotive!

Suspension is fully-adjustable Sachs monoshock at the rear and 50mm USD Marzocchi fork at front. The bike handles very well, changing direction quickly and decisively, and grip is never an issue with the Corsaro Veloce’s Pirelli Diablo rubber. The brakes, too, are very strong, lifting the rear wheel off the tarmac with ease.

On the circuit, the Moto Morini is a joy to ride and the torque produced by that v-twin ensures that you don’t have to keep changing gears all the time. In fact, most of the time, you can get away with using one gear higher than you need to use with most inline-four Japanese machines…

Overall, a brilliant machine.
