We all have a wild side. The Corsaro 1200 Veloce is a special bike and its name, Veloce, Italian for high-speed, reveals its intrinsic personality. 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 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 the cylinders. 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

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 Corsaro 1200 Veloce flaunts its gritty style aesthetically, too, which comes through in its “mean” graphics. It is available in three versions: black technical base and monochromatic upperstructures in red, white, or all black for an even more aggressive impact.

The rear is characterised by an asymmetrical swing arm that conceals an Ohlins single shock absorber with separate tank multi-adjustable in length, pre-load, extension and rebound. 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. At front are a pair of 320 mm discs with radial master-cylinder and four-piston callipers, a solution stemming from a precise technical input, that of lending safety thanks to a excellent modulability and awesome power.
