Now that the ‘great unhappiness’ is over, Moto Morini are back to work and have released an all new adventure motorcycle called the X-Cape.
The new bike looks the part and it does, indeed, appear to be a machine that one could make their much needed escape from the everyday on.
The X-Cape promises versatility, fun and comfort whilst being blessed with the handsome looks of a bike that could only have been designed by an Italian!
This package has been designed to work as well on paved roads as well it will on a trail.
The saddle is roomy enough to move about on and has a neutral height of 845mm.
Things are also very user-friendly.
A large 7” information-giving TFT screen sits below the rider’s view of the road, whilst the bike’s windscreen is adjustable with only one hand. Mind you, I’m not, for a moment, suggesting that you move it up or down when riding.
Also up the front is a USB charging point. That’s very handy for the phone that’s playing the music that’s being piped into your helmet. The electrics continue with a full LED headlight.
Somewhat surprisingly, the ABS is still switchable. This is very handy for trail riding and, at this stage, is gone from almost every other European marque .
Dealer fit accessories are also available.
The list is long and includes pieces such as hand guards, crash bars and a lower seat.
There’s also an engine guard and, for those who like their long days in the saddle, a touring windscreen.
Naturally a full three piece aluminium luggage set is available as well.
Moto Morinis’s X-Cape is available as either a standard or limited 48 horse power engine. For more information drop by Cork’s Barcon Moto or send Shane a WhatsApp message on 0852629423.
