Guys at Legend Motors have just listed a Moto Morini 1200 Scrambler, and France should rejoice it.
Those who have been with us for some time now should be aware of our adoration for Legend Motors. This little bike shop in the niche premium market place at District of Lille is big on some masterfully restored vintage and collector motorcycles. Through the years, Christophe and his team of highly skilled individuals have been restoring glorious motorcycles of the times gone by to their period correct forms immaculately. Though we haven’t been personally to their shop yet, it surely does figure in our ‘must visit’ places in the European Continent. With the old school charm of the building and the sheer talents at work, this is one place worth talking about. Also, worthy of talk is the latest arrival at Legend Motors, an Olive Green Moto Morini 1200 Scrambler in all its glory.
Now, a Legend Motors Moto Morini 1200 Scrambler isn’t exactly a vintage or a classic bike like almost every other Legend Motors work we talk about, however, it truly much deserves to be at the shop. Hand Built in Italy, the Moto Morini bikes are probably last of the old school high capacity motorcycles on the planet. A company that finds its roots way back in the previous century, Moto Morini restarted motorcycle production in 2012 after a long hard history that saw it liquidated in 2010. The range currently features essentially 5 models among which the Moto Morini 1200 Scrambler you see here is more inclined for adventure. The bike is rather classic in its design hence, brings with it a nostalgic old world charm. However, not to be fooled by its olds school appearance, this one is known to be a rather brutal and anti-peaceful ride.
