There he is! Moto Morini Seiemmezzo

August 4, 2022

Seiemmezzo is Italian for 6.5 and actually refers to the displacement of the two newcomers. The naked bike STR and the scrambler SCR have a 649 cc twin-cylinder engine, as does the Moto Morini X-CAPE.

Moto Morini modular principle

So in effect, Moto Morini uses a modular principle. That is, the manufacturer offers several model variants based on the same technology. Not only is that smart, it’s also cost effective.

Italian brand

Moto Morini has traditionally been an Italian brand, but since 2018 China’s Zhongneng Vehicle Group has owned it. Since then, there has been capital for development of new models and we are now seeing the tangible fruits of this.

LED illumination and TFT color display

The Moto Morini Seiemmezzo duo has a somewhat classic design but with modern touches and technicalities. For example, you see full LED lighting. And as with the X-CAPE, a 5-inch display lines the dashboard, with Bluetooth integrated.

Moto Morini Seiemmezzo Scrambler

The Seiemmezzo scrambler (SCR) has a high fender, headlight fairing, leather-colored saddle and gold-colored front fork. The scrambler version further has spoked wheels. The picture-perfect fuel tank has a capacity of 16 liters.

Moto Morini Seiemmezzo Street

The Seiemmezzo Street is distinguished by cast wheels, a low fender, a ranker styled tank. The handlebars and seating position also evoke a just a bit sportier feeling on this naked. And you can recognize the STR by the lack of the headlight fairing.

Many technical similarities

The list of similarities is larger for this duo. Both have Brembo brakes, adjustable Kayaba suspension front and rear, a relatively low 810mm seating position and an equally powerful engine of 61bhp and 54Nm of torque. In addition, less powerful 35 kW versions are possible for A2 license.
