Af­ter some­thing that’s slightly dif­fer­ent, Ital­ian and, ideally, named af­ter a city? Well then the Moto Morini Mi­lano might just be right up your al­ley.

If you’ve never heard of Moto Morini then you’ll have to look back a bit; ba­si­cally they’re an Ital­ian com­pany (ob­vi­ously) who were big in the 70s and look­ing to make a come­back – and it looks like they’ve done a de­cent job. Pow­ered by a 1,200cc V-twin en­gine that de­liv­ers 116hp and 108Nm of torque, the Mi­lano should go as well as it looks, and Moto Morini tell us that it sounds pretty spe­cial as well thanks to the dual ex­haust ter­mi­nal.

They say that the Mi­lano is a high­per­for­mance ma­chine that’s pleas­ant to ride, thanks to the pur­pose-built steel trel­lis chas­sis com­bined with fully ad­justable Mupo sus­pen­sion front and rear. If that doesn’t seem like enough, brak­ing power comes in abun­dance cour­tesy of Brembo, thanks to two 320mm discs on the front and four-pis­ton ra­dial mounted calipers, along­side a switch­able Bosch ABS sys­tem.

There’s no word on price just yet, but Moto Morini say that the Mi­lano will be avail­able in red and blue from next spring.

Ital­ian style.
