Thanks Randy and Flyinace


The Bialbero CorsaCorta 1187 engine is proprietary (118hp, 76 ft/lbs). In fact it's really one of the few things that Morini actually makes themselves. Nearly everything on the bike is made by one of the Italian component makers (excel rims, zard & Termignoni exhaust, Verlicchi frame, Marzocchi forks, Ohlins rear...) to Morini's specifications, which is great because the quality is all top notch and I have less concern about availability of parts. The bike has the appearance of a heavily customized bike even while stock because nearly all of the parts are branded by the various manufacturers.

The engine is pretty bomb proof and is used throughout the line. Because of the recent history of the brand I did a lot of research to try and find out any chronic issues with the engine and found very little issues with the bike as a whole. The Corsaro version pumps out 140 hp so the Scrambler variant isn't stressed at all. Plus, at about 420lbs it's the same weight or lighter than most of the 800cc dual sports (some with less than half the horsepower) so it's far from under powered for the job at hand. I've been completely impressed by this bike.

Sorry for any thread derailing I might of caused.

Pretty sure it is a Honda NC700D 'Integra'.

I've always fancied the zx6 and zx10 ninjas, especially the newer models. Although I'd never own one I'd like to try 'em out.




Lovely beasties.

I'd forgotten how damn sexy they were/are.

No, I'm not joking. Sat on one today at the local dealer. Comfortable, streamlined, kinda tacky...what's not to like?

IMO, that would be my last choice in that class.

I hear you. They're like an e-glide without the paint shaker and with higher quality control.
