Just barely two weeks ago, we reported that the Italian brand, Moto Morini, will be making a comeback to the Philippines and will be distributed by the Bristol Group.
On December 10, 2022, Moto Morini officially opened its doors to the public, and its right smack in the middle of 10th Avenue in Caloocan City – the Motorcycle Capital of the Philippines.
650cc models from Moto Morini
The new 200 square meter showroom, will feature 3 new models from the Italian brand: the Seiemmezzo with its two variants and the X-Cape adventure bike.
The Seiemmezzo 6½ will be the Italian brand’s naked bike flagship for the middleweight class. The STR will be the sportier naked bike, boasting a little bit more aggressive riding ergonomics, and alloy wheels.
The SCR, on the other hand, has design cues that lean toward a scrambler motorcycle and more upright riding ergonomics. Both bikes are powered by the same 649cc, parallel-twin engine that produces 63 PS of power and 54 Nm of torque. Both versions of the Seiemmezzo 6½ also sport a 16-liter fuel tank, 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, ABS, KYB suspension system, and TFT screens.
For those who are more adventure inclined, the Moto Morini X-Cape is the bike for you. Powered by the same 649cc engine as the Seiemmezzo 6½, the X-Cape promises to be a capable middleweight adventure bike that can tackle any terrain thanks to its 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire wheels that roll on a pair of Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires.
The X-Cape also boasts a 7-inch TFT screen, fully-adjustable Marzocchi forks, Brembo brake calipers, ABS, sporty exhaust, and an optional top box and pannier system.
As for the SRP, the Seiemmezzo STR will have a price tag of PHP 528,000, while the SCR will be available for PHP 558,000.
The X-Cape adventure bike, will be sold in three color variants starting at PHP 658,000.
