New for 2008: Moto Morini Corsaro
Dec 21, 2007
Corsaro Avio. Dazzling, tough and a pleasure to behold. Bursting with personality, this new entry has a satin silver finish on a blue frame, a nod to motorcyclists seeking attention and easy handling more than true grit performance. The Corsacorta Bialbero 1187 cc twin-cylinder has been optimized to deliver 120 hp to the shaft and offer a fullbodied, fluid thrust at low rpms. The features of the engine match the qualities of the chassis and components, which encapsulate some of the greatest names in Italian mechanical engineering. The result is a spunky naked bike with an ambition of being competitive in all areas including price.
Corsaro. The first of the new generation Moto Morini's bikes is introduced in a version with several new components:
- Brembo braking system with 320 mm double disc with radial master-cylinder and 4-piston callipers. This solution, also used for the Corsaro Veloce, responds to specific technical imperatives: to guarantee the utmost safety by combining power and modulability to offer efficient, total braking to any rider, even in the face of sudden obstacles or slippery surfaces.
- Radial clutch master-cylinder for improved modulability.
- Sachs rear shock absorber with progressive linkage, adjustable in rebound, compression and preload with single nut with large piston and eased rebound spring.
Complementing the classic two-toned finish of red/silver and black/silver is a new colour combination: black/white on black frame.
Corsaro Veloce. Even the sportiest version of the Corsaro has been updated with technical features to deliver a performance that can be judged supreme for its category.
- Brembo braking system with 320 mm double disc with radial master-cylinder and 4-piston callipers.
- Radial clutch master-cylinder.
- Ohlins single shock absorber with separate tank offering adjustment in length, preload, rebound and compression. The use of the Ohlins rear suspension combined with the sophisticated Marzocchi fork at front improve the stability and handling of the motorcycle for steady performance, instant adaptability to irregularities, not to mention an ability to withstand hard deceleration during abrupt braking.
The Corsaro Veloce gets a new colour combo too: in addition to the red and black versions, it will also be available in white on a black technical base.
