Moto Morini goes crazy, releases really cool Scrambler

Dailies -


SCRAMBLER_front.jpgBecause two is better than one, because motorcycles should always come in black, and because anything with knobbly tires is just cooler, Moto Morini is complementing the 1200 Sport with the 1200 Scrambler. While the Scrambler also is scheduled to start production in March, we’ve yet to get the official “DENIED” concerning getting these stateside.

    tail= Triumph Street Triple; wheels, tires & exhaust= Triumph Scrambler; front fender= Triumph Speedmaster; frame= Ducati Monster. it is a compilation, but they did a good job of taking all those individual great components and made a good looking bike

  • Grant Ray

    It’s okay if you’re jealous that an Italian company is making a lighter faster Scrambler than Triumph, Max. We understand.

  • Wes Siler

    This reminds me of the Triumph Speed Triple from Mission Impossible II, they had to put knobblies on it to do the off road stunts and they were visibile in the film. Very Mad Max.
