The second exemplar of the new generation of Moto Morini bikes is the 9 1/2, the natural outgrowth of that grand, yet simple and innovative motorcycle, the glorious 3 1/2. Thirty years later, a surprising number still roam the roads around the world. That model and the 9 1/2 have basic concepts in common that are hallmarks of Motor Morini: rational and efficient application of technical solutions; streamlined Italian styling; excellent handling and manoeuvrability. The motorbike presented at the Motor Show is a concept, the first concrete step towards a project that will encompass a whole range.

The 9 1/2 is a large-displacement road bike equipped with a Bialbero CorsaCorta twincylinder engine in the 998 cc version, which develops 105 HP at 9000 rpm. Designed by Franco Lambertini, the engine is the technological core of the bike and contains major innovative content, which for its class assures excellence in performance. A distinctive trait of the 9 1/2 project is the dualism of performance and accessibility: this bike is the first of a range that weds the classic, "reassuring" style with the performance of a powerful and agile motorcycle characterised by a comfortable setup and 100% Italian componentry. It's a bike we believe will be appreciated for its style and riding comfort -- and that goes for longer distances too - but that can also pack the emotion of a powerful, reliable twin-cylinder engine.

The 9 1/2 has no fairing; the aesthetics of the vehicle have been entrusted to the exposed mechanical parts and the stylistic decisions made during the design process: the trellis frame of steel tubes in varying thickness integrate perfectly with the swing arm featuring oval-sectioned large-diameter tubes; upside down fork with large-diameter legs; round front headlight; large tank designed to accommodate the most comfortable riding position; a wide, comfortable seat also for the passenger; spoked wheels with a channel in high-quality aluminium; suspension with lateral monoshock absorber; and Euro 3 exhaust system with single lateral silencer under the seat.

A bona fide Italian motorbike, the 9 1/2 avoids extremes but exudes a big personality. It is difficult to place it in a marketing category because it does not fall within the rigid segments of the market. Not designated for a specific user or target, the 9 1/2 conveys its own, original way of interpreting the riding experience. And our bet is that the owner will appreciate it by enhancing the aspects that best conform to his requirements.
