Here is the Moto Morini Corsaro 1200 ZZ
2017 marks the classic Italian factory’s 80th anniversary, and with new models on the way, perhaps a full on Moto Morini revival could be in the works.
This is the Corsaro ZZ and it is designed to give its rider a thrilling experience, fast and sporty yet precise and safe. Everything is in the hands of the rider, starting from the ability to disable ABS at the flick of a switch.
SAME CHARACTER, THE REST IS NEW
The Bialbero 1200 CorsaCorta remains at the centre of everything, but the famous twin-cylinder motorcycle is now enhanced with two-way switchable ABS, electronic gears, and a new engine management system. The chassis has also been completely renewed, from the new dimensions of the trellis frame to the fully adjustable suspension. The front braking system uses monoblock 4-piston radial mounted callipers with a double 320 mm floating disc, while for performance and durability, the aluminium-forged rims are fitted with Pirelli dual compound tyres.
Designed following the specifications requested by Moto Morini for the Corsaro ZZ, the new suspension kits were built by Mupo. The fork legs machined from a solid block have adjustable compression, rebound damping and preload settings which allow for 135 mm of wheel travel, to combine high-speed stability with comfort for a stress-free ride. Even the shock absorber can be controlled at will in terms of compression, rebound damping, length, and remote hydraulic preload.
The braking system with switchable ABS relies on four-piston monoblock radial mount callipers, a double floating disc with 320 mm diameter and a 16/19 semiradial pump, all designed by Brembo; while the rear braking system uses a specifically designed two piston calliper with 220 mm disc. Last but not least, the dual-compound Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres provide maximum grip even during braking.
The new front headlamp maintains the classic style of the Corsaro, but now uses two LED headlights with dual high beam / low beam function. LED technology is also used for the sidelights, tail light, and direction indicator lights.
