Moto Morini has introduced a new pair of middleweight motorcycles, the Seiemmezzo STR and Seiemmezzo SCR.
- The Moto Morini Seiemmezzo is a middleweight motorcycle with a 649cc parallel-twin engine.
- The Seiemmezzo range consists of a naked (STR) and scrambler (SCR) motorcycle.
For those who don’t speak Italian (including us), Seiemmezzo translates to “six and a half,” which is self-explanatory.
The Seiemmezzo range consists of two mid-range 649cc motorcycles, the STR (naked) and SCR (scrambler).
The main visual difference between the STR and SCR is the wheels, with the latter featuring wire-spoked wheels and the former getting alloy rims. However, both bikes get the same Pirelli Angel GT 120/70-18 front and 160/60-17 at the back.
The motorcycle is equipped with the same 649cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine that makes 61hp and 54Nm.
Morini claimed the STR and SCR could hit a maximum speed of 170km/h despite weighing around 200kg (dry) and carrying a large 16L fuel tank.
Other notable features include:
- dual 298mm front disc
- single 255mm rear disc
- dual-channel Bosch ABS
Also, the Seiemmezzo STR and SCR are suspended by 43mm Kayaba front forks with 120mm of travel and a Kayaba monoshock at the rear, with adjustable preload.
In addition, the rear shock is linked to the rear wheel by an aluminium swingarm.
According to Moto Morini, the Seiemmezzo STR is available in “Starlight White”, “Fire Red”, and “Smoky Anthracite”, while the SCR features “Navy Green” and “Night Black” colourways.
