After financial difficulties and being sold on the auction block, Moto Morini is now firmly back in business and this is the first motorcycle they will be producing, the Rebello 1200 Giubileo (Jubilee) to celebrate their 75th Anniversary. Now that the entire bike has been revealed Moto Morini will be contacting all 20 bidders asking them to ask them if they want to still confirm their booking coupon. The on-line auction will continue until April 30th for this special edition and everyone else who did not participate will have to wait until 2013 to get their hands on it. The same on-line booking procedure will also be used for the Corsaro Veloce, the Granpasso and the Scrambler. Check out the Rebello 1200 Giubileo image gallery for more photographs.
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.”
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 Ã–hlins 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.
