It was first confirmed that the Moto Morini brand would be distributed in Malaysia by Penang-based MForce Bike Holdings.
Interestingly, MForce also confirmed that the highly anticipated Moto Morini X-Cape 650 would also make its way to Malaysia.
During a recent event held in Alor Setar, Kedah, MForce did a special preview of the Moto Morini X-Cape 650.
According to reports by Paultan.org, the Moto Morini X-Cape 650 will be available in Malaysia by mid-2022 with an estimated price of RM45k.
The X-Cape 650 features a 649cc parallel-twin engine that makes around 60hp @ 8,250rpm and 56Nm @ 7,000rpm. While the power is decent, the X-Cape 650 comes with premium components, including adjustable upside-down Marzocchi forks, adjustable KYB rear shocks and Brembo brakes.
The adventure-tourer also comes equipped with an 18L tank and a 7-inch TFT instrument display.
The X-Cape 650 is built around a steel trellis frame and paired to an aluminium swingarm to ensure its rigidity on and off-road.
