Moto Morini unveiled the 1200 Sport at the Padovar Cycle Show this week, with production slated for March. Based on the company's 9 ½, it's fitted with a retro-styled exhaust, an upside-down banana swingarm, a headlight fairing and a white trellis frame. The Sport is aimed at Ducati's Sport Classic line as well as Triumph's Thruxton. Because the bike has 117hp at the crank and weighs in at 440lbs dry, we'd gladly be seen with it in Gulf colors or British-racing green and yellow, à la vintage Lotus.
