Now that's one unique-looking adventure-tourer
MForce Bike Holdings, the official distributor for Moto Morini in Malaysia, has announced its first bike offering for the Malaysian market - the 2022 Moto Morini X-Cape 650. This Italian brand's comeback into our local market marks a significant timeline in terms of bike offering as well as price range.
Those who are in the market for an adventure-tourer that leans more on the 'adventure' side may want to consider the Moto Morini X-Cape 650 for a number of reasons. For a price tag that starts from RM39,999 (excluding insurance and road tax), the X-Cape 650 comes in two different variants - the base X-Cape 650 for more on-road use, and the X-Cape 650X with some off-road specs (RM43,999).
Both variants share the same 650cc twin-cylinder engine that is rated at 60hp and 56Nm of torque - more than enough for your daily commutes both long and short, plus some off-road fun if you're into that sort of thing during the weekends. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the same for both variants.
Other notable features include:
- 50mm fully-adjustable Marzocchi front forks
- Rear KYB monoshock
- Dual-channel ABS (switchable for off-road use)
- Brembo brake package
- Seven-inch TFT screen with smartphone connectivity
- 18-litre fuel tank + many more
Each new model of the 2022 Moto Morini X-Cape 650 comes with a two-year manufacturer's warranty or 20,000km (whichever comes first). Those who are interested can choose between three colour options - Dolomites Red, Monte Blanco White, and Carrara Gray.
