2008 Moto Morini MM3 to go into production soon

The MM3 will pack 125bhp, and a load of gizmos...

First shown at the EICMA show in Milan in 2006, the Moto Morini MM3 is now all set to go into production. Though the MM3 has vague off-road/dual-purpose bike styling cues, it’s very much a street-oriented sportsbike and is perhaps similar to bikes like the 2007 Triumph Tiger, the Benelli TreK, and the Ducati Multistrada 1100.

Looks all right, eh?

The Moto Morini MM3 will be fitted with an 1187cc twin-cylinder engine that makes a healthy 125 horsepower. The more interesting thing, for some, would be that the MM3 will also feature high-tech electro-trickery like fly-by-wire throttle control, anti-lock brakes and even traction control. Take that, all you Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Yamaha R1 owners! No word on pricing and availability yet, but stay tuned.

Moto Morini have been building bikes and painting them red for a long time. This is a Moto Morini 175GT, from 1959!
