Not sure if it's a true adventure bike but I thought I would leave this here:
Reminds me a lot of the old F650
No technical data available yet.
Looks like a poor man's Multistrada 950S.
Engine appears Kawasaki 650 derived as with the cfmoto.
...and thats a good thing!
I really like this new idea of Moto Morini. Seat 830 mm from the ground. price below 8000 euros. looks like a great product with the 650 twin made by CFMoto. Around 55 horse power
Kawasaki has wasted their chance to introduce a bike similar to this one for years and years. Why ? I don't have a clue , but , that's the truth. It's like their unaware of what people want and trends of the buying public.
Instead they build supercharged inline fours , that while cool , most will pass on because of the unknown associated with new tech.
They have an excellent motor in the P-twin 650 , they just seem to ignore their potential.
I think it's a good looking bike
I couldn't find any power figures but a French website said it would meet A2 License requirements which means it's less than 48 HP.
The moto-station review says it will be available in version that meet A and A2 licensing requirements. Which mans there will be a restricted version available, but also one with higher horsepower.
Surprising that it has only 135mm of travel in the rear, especially when the front is rated at 160, but maybe not a deal breaker for this bike. But, based on what I read on the Scramblers, the wheels are tubeless, so good job Moto Morini...
The more powerful engine version is at the moment passing the Euro 5 tests. It should be around 65-70 HP.
Looks great to me.
Kawi could have built this bike a very long time ago, but they squandered that opening.
Kawi could have owned so much momentum with the mid-size Japanese ADV bike at this point and yet they fumbled. They still have no sign of a KLR replacement either.
I think this motor is a Chinese build version of that Kawi motor...which makes it even more goofy looking at Kawi.
Yeah they were focused on that dumb supercharged sportbike. Cool and all to say you built it but so unrealistic for selling real bikes to end users.
This only problem will be if it weighs as much as an 800 and costs as much as an 800. If it doesn't, it will be a welcome addition.
Kawasaki built the 500 twin ADV bikes before ADV was a thing in the US and rather than bringing it back in a new improved form, they just let it go.
The engineering of a light ADV twin is going so slowly, I am expecting that electric manufacturers will crack the code first.
There was already a thread about the X-Cape ( https://advrider.com/f/threads/moto-morini-x-cape-650cc.1415013/ ).
As I wrote there, the price will be around 8.000 EUR.
I hope too.
Except my thread was first and you didn't bother checking.
