Sneak Preview: 2013 Moto Morini Rebello 1200 Giubileo
The new Moto Morini Rebello 1200 certainly looks interesting...

Legendary Italian motorcycle company, Moto Morini are celebrating their 75th anniversary this year. And to mark the occasion, they have announced a new motorcycle – the Rebello 1200 Giubileo – which will go on sale in 2013, with a price tag of 13,900 euros. According to the Morini website, the Corsaro Veloce, Granpasso and Scrambler will also be available in 2013 and will be sold alongside the new Rebello.

The Moto Morini Rebello 1200 gets a tubular steel trellis frame and is powered by the company’s liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 8-valve, 1187cc ‘Bialbero CorsaCorta’ V-twin, which produces 130 horsepower and 122Nm of torque. This is, by Morini’s own admission, “A wicked, aggressive engine, which makes the Rebello 1200 Giubileo a downright wicked bike.” Ahem.

An electronic dashboard with multi-function LCD display, six-speed gearbox, multi-disc wet anti-hop clutch, multi-adjustable 50mm Marzocchi USD forks, fully adjustable Öhlins monoshock and Brembo brakes – with twin 320mm brake discs and 4-piston calipers at the front, and single 220mm disc with twin-piston caliper at the back – complete the package. The bike even has an electrically operated seat unit which transforms from a single-seat to twin-seat unit at the press of a button. The Rebello rides on 17-inch wheels, shod with 120/70 (front) and 190/55 (rear) ZR-rated Pirelli Angel tyres, and the bike weighs 198kg sans fuel.

While regular deliveries of the Rebello will only start in 2013, Moto Morini will produce 600 units of the bike this year – those who can’t wait until next year to get their hands on the bike should visit the MM website here to find out more about how they can get their Rebello before anyone else does!
