Moto Morini will enter the Indian market with two adventure bikes, a scrambler, and a street motorcycle.

A month after announcing that it would enter the Indian market in partnership with Adishwar Auto Ride India (AARI), Moto Morini debuted four motorcycles in the Indian market. The company’s product line-up in India comprises the X-Cape 650, X-Cape 650X, Seiemmezzo 6 ½ Retro Street, and Scrambler.

Moto Morini X-Cape 650 and X-Cape 650X Details

The X-Cape range comprises the brand’s middle-weight adventure motorcycles and comes with a 649cc liquid-cooled inline-twin engine, which delivers 60hp at 8,250rpm and 54Nm of 7,000rpm via a 6-speed gearbox. 

In terms of suspension, both motorcycles get a fully-adjustable 50mm Marzocchi USD fork up front and a preload and damping adjustable KYB monoshock at the rear. They get a 7.0-inch TFT instrument panel, LED headlight, Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres, Brembo brakes with Dual Channel ABS, and a large 18-litre fuel tank and have a ground clearance of 175mm. The bikes ride on 110/80 – 19 tyres up front and 150/70 – 17 tyres at the rear. Braking duties are handled by 298mm discs at the front and a single 255mm disc at the rear.

The X-Cape 650 and the X-Cape 650X differ in terms of seat height – the former has a seat height of 810mm, while the latter's seat height is 835mm. Additionally, the X-Cape 650 gets alloy wheels, while its twin gets spoked wheels. At its launch, the motorcycles will take on the likes of the recently updated Kawasaki Versys 650, Triumph Tiger Sport 660, and Suzuki V-Strom 650XT.
