It's been 10 years since I rode Moto Morini's Corsaro 1200 and 9 1/2, and it's been a quiet decade from this Italian exotic manufacturer. But Morini is still in the game, and ready to step into the Euro IV era with an updated version of the Bialbero 1187cc v-twin engine that we enjoyed so much in 2007.
That 87-degree, 136-horsepower, 92 pound-foot stomper finds itself in a new version of that sexy trellis frame in the new Corsaro ZZ, and as part of the upgrade it gets switchable ABS Brembos, LED headlights and indicators and a new fully adjustable suspension package from Morini's compatriot Mupo Race Suspension.

Each bike is custom built to spec, including the choice of some very interesting paint jobs like brushed metal and wood grain finishes, as well as access to a bunch of carbon fiber bits if you're that way inclined. Thus, there's no pricing information available.
But that very Italian design seems to be aging well. Even if numbers are down to bespoke production, the Corsaro 1200 ZZ is still a stunner.
