Naked and aggressive, Corsaro 1200 Veloce is a motorcycle
with top-flight components and racing graphics. intended for bikers, who
love Italian motorcycling tradition. The Corsaro 1200 Veloce is a “standard
produced special bike”, a motorcycle born to deliver total fun and absolute
performance worthy of a true racing machine.
The Bialbero CorsaCorta twin cylinder
The technological core of the Corsaro 1200 Veloce is the Bialbero CorsaCorta
1187 cc twin cylinder engine, which develops 140 hp at 8500 rpm. The
engine’s layout is compact, strongly characterised by the 87° V layout of
Moto Morini has equipped the Corsaro 1200 Veloce with high-level components
to upgrade the performance of the twin cylinder and to provide the pleasure
of a sporty ride. Essence of the chassis is the trellis frame in
high-strength tubular steel by Verlicchi. The structure is extremely solid
and combines all the stiffness required to harness the power of the engine
The function of the frame is aided by top-notch suspensions
which are even more sophisticated in this sport version. At front is a
powerful Marzocchi Magnum with 50 mm diameter legs with precise
customisation of the setting in compression and rebound thanks to a double
adjustment: the adjuster on the plug for the hydraulic damping of the
rebound is complemented by an adjuster for the hydraulic damping of the
compression placed at the foot of the fork. The positioning of the scraper
on the bushes improves the hold of the cartridge, the hard anodized internal
rod in ergal makes sliding more efficient and assures a greater resistance
to wear. The longer counterspring intensifies the thrill when pulling out of
a curve at high speed and guarantees better stability at the front. On the
whole, the visual solidity is echoed in a solid and even ride, with the bike
ready to conform to the slightest unevenness on the road and to bear the
thrust of deceleration in the most race-inspired breakaways.
The rear is characterised by an asymmetrical swing arm that
conceals a Sachs fully adjustable single shock absorber, with leg increased
by 16 mm in diameter, adjustable spring in rebound with single ring nut and
internal counterspring for improving riding response.
While braking, the Corsaro 1200 Veloce never gives reason to
disappoint: the Gold Series Brembo systems deliver powerful yet progressive
deceleration, granting the rider the sensitivity needed for optimum handling
of this difficult aspect of the riding experience.
The exhaust system has two slender and lightweight
Termignoni silencers in a pure racing style that produce a powerful hum
while complying to Euro 3 emission standards.
The second control unit with racing mapping delivered with
the bike and that promises a definite upgrade in performance. This
sophisticated electronic component can be utilized only for track use.
The support of the rider footpegs is in ergal machined from
the solid and they have been set more towards the rear to offer better
control at the front, thus a racier feel.
The Corsaro 1200 Veloce flaunts its gritty style
aesthetically, too, which comes through in its “mean” graphics: the black
technical base and monochromatic upperstructures in red accentuate the
The bike will be available at the Moto Morini sales network
starting from the end of 2006.
