Description

Founded by Alfonso Morini in Bologna in 1937, post war Fabbrica Italiana Motocicli Morini produced a range of lightweight 2-stroke bikes. Morini’s single-cylinder 4-stroke models achieved racing success from the late 1940s through to the 1960s. In 1961 the great Giacomo Agostini began his racing career on a Morini, becoming Italian Cadet Champion in ’62 and Junior Champion in ‘63. Riding a Morini 250GP, Tarquinio Provini won the Italian Championship in 1961 and ’62, and finished a very close second to Jim Redman’s Honda in the 1963 250 World Championship.

Introduced toward the end of 1958, Morini’s offering in the 125 class was the Corsaro (Pirate). Powered by a 123cc single-cylinder OHV 4-stroke producing 6hp at 7,000rpm, it remained in production for 10 years.

This sporty Corsaro was restored to a very high standard during 2015 and its 18mm carburettor has been replaced by the larger UBF20BS DellOrto as fitted to the Corsaro Veloce model. It is offered with its original Italian title document.
