    Where: EICMA 2019 - Italy
    When: production will start on 3d quarter 2020
    What: 650cc, 19" at front, 17" rear, 50mm fork forward, 7" TFT screen, presumably 65-70 HP
    Who: Italian-Chinese joint-vernture
    Price: promised to be very very very interesting

    Probably this bike will be more close to a crossover than to a real dual-sport. We have to wait until the EICMA event in Milan to get more details...

    The commercial manager Riccardo Bertaggia has declared that the X-Cape should arrive in Februar or the first days of March 2021.
    The delay is due to the COVID situation. All projects was postponed, and then the winter has arrived...

    I'm very curious about this bike.

    Yeah, good looking bike. Another great middle weight Adventure Tourer that we won't see in the US... :dirtdog

    The worst part is that this little beast is based on the Versys architecture, Kawasaki could have had their own version years ago.

    On the Moto Morini website is advertised as "Coming soon".
    Maybe it is true?
