This is correct. Morini hasn't sold any of it's 1200 line in the US. They haven't had any bikes in the US since their 350 and 500 cc bikes (which I think ended sales in the US in the early 80's but...

Any other Morini Scramblers (or other 1200's ) on the board?

Sadly, no. I don't think there have been Morinis sold in the states since the early late 70's early 80's. That would of been the 350 and 500cc bikes. The Lambertini 1200 models were never sold there....
