Price, Features & Competitors for Moto Morini Cycles in India

The Ceimezzo Retro Street Roadster, priced at Rs. 6.89 Lakh, is the cheapest Moto Morini, while the Ciamezzo Scrambler priced at Rs. 6.99 Lakh is the cheapest.

These bikes share most of the bike parts, with the exception of the wheels and tires they are equipped with, and are powered by a liquid-cooled 649cc parallel-twin engine that produces 55hp and 54Nm.

The X-Cape 650 Adventure Bike Moto Morini might be the product best suited for some of our worst road conditions. The standard model of the X-Cape 650 with cast alloy rims is priced at Rs. 7.20 lakh, while the 650X with tubeless wire-spoke wheels is priced at Rs. 7.40 lakhs.

The same 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine powers these middleweight adventure bikes, but they deliver slightly higher peak outputs here: 60 hp and 54 Nm.

Features like TFT dash (larger on the X-Cape model), Pirelli tyres, dual-channel ABS and all-LED lighting are standard on all Moto Morini products sold in India. To better complement its off-road nature, the X-Cape adventure bike also comes with two riding modes.

The Seiemmezzo Retro Street, which is priced around the same as the neo-retro Kawasaki Z650RS (Rs 6.92 lakh), is aimed directly at it. Compared to the Z650RS, it is a bit heavier and produces less power, but has many more features.

 The smaller Benelli Leoncino 500 and Ducati Scrambler 800 fall on either end of the competition spectrum, but the Scrambler lacks any natural rival in this price or performance range.

In the middleweight adventure bike market, more established brands offer tough competition to the X-Cape 650 model from Moto Morini. The Kawasaki Versys 650 ($7.36 lakh) and the much more expensive Triumph Tiger Sport 660 compete with the standard X-Cape 650. (Rs 8.95 lakh).

A video of our comparison of the latter two is available here. The X-Cape 650X competes with the then tried-and-tested Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, even though the Suzuki is priced significantly higher ($8.88 lakh) and has fewer features than the Italian model.
