Moto Morini Returns to America

I remember the Moto Morini motorcycles back in my youth. I never knew anybody who actually owned one, but I frequently beheld them in motorcycle magazines of the time. In my mind, Morinis ranked right up there in beauty, quality, desirability, and price of course, with the likes of Italian counterparts Ducati, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzi and Cagiva, to name a few. Heck, the Italians had around 25 motorcycle/scooter companies back in the day, all of which had this exotic aura about them to us American riders.

Riding The Yamaha MT-10 SP

When the MT-10 was first launched back in 2016, it struck a polarizing figure with that “love it or hate it” Japanese cyberpunk, transformer styling.

We were granted the opportunity to sample a CB1000R Black Edition for a little over a month, and what struck me first was the attention to detail in this all-blacked out motorbike. No substantial chrome or brushed aluminum anywhere, from the tank and fenders, to the forks, wheels, radiator and airbox covers, swingarm, headers and pipes, you name it. Black on black. To top it off, Honda tacked on very nice machined bits all around, on the handlebar clamp, swingarm pivots, rear hub, wheel spokes, footpeg mounts and engine covers. This bike is an attention-getter, everywhere we’ve ridden and parked it.
