- Pegged as an ‘everyday’ streetfighter
- Powered by 137 horsepower V-twin
- Priced at Rs 12.77 lakhs in Europe
Italian bike maker, Moto Morini, has taken the wraps off the new Crosaro ZT. Based on the Corsaro ZZ, this streetfighter is powered by a 137 horsepower V-twin engine.
While the Corzaro ZZ was pegged as an aggressive and performance-oriented streetfighter, the ZT is more user-friendly and less demanding than its sibling. The Corsaro 1200 ZT gets all the quintessential Italian styling cues like an exposed trellis frame and V-twin engine, underseat exhaust and a sculpted fuel tank. At the front is a single headlamp in place of the twin-headlamp setup. The rear indicator is mounted on the tyre hugger. The instrument console consists of a five-inch colour LCD display.
At the heart of the Corsaro 1200 ZT is an 1187cc FMV12 V-twin engine, delivering 137bhp and 125Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed transmission with a quickshifter and a slipper clutch. It rides on lightweight 17-inch forged aluminium wheels. It gets 46mm inverted front forks and a rear monoshock. The suspension setup has been sourced from Mupo and is fully adjustable. The brake setup consists of dual 320mm discs up front and a single 220mm disc at the rear, with ABS offered as standard. The Corsaro 1200 ZT is six kilograms lighter than its host, tipping the scales at 191 kilograms.
The Corsaro ZT retails at EUR 16,240 (Rs 12.77 lakhs) in Italy. It competes against other streetfighters like the Ducati Monster 1200, Aprilia Shiver 1200 and the KTM 1290 Super Duke. Although Moto Morini had announced its intentions to enter the Indian market during the 2014 Auto Expo, the plans fell through. We do not expect its bikes to be sold in India anytime soon.
