Moto Morini X-Cap 650X: Image gallery
Italian brand Moto Morini recently entered India with three motorcycles. We also got to drive them briefly and the one that impressed us the most was the X-Cape 650X Adventure Tourer. Before our detailed road test review of the bike is published, you can read our first impressions here. For now, let’s take a look at some of the more eye-catching images of the bike.
The X-Cape looks like the quintessential adventure tourer with a tall, upright stance. Adding to its ADV credentials are a tall windshield, high ground clearance, knobby tires, wire wheels and a rear rack.
It is suitably equipped in terms of modern features with the list including a seven-inch color TFT screen, two riding modes (Ride and Off-road), two USB charging ports and an adjustable windshield.
The hardware package, in particular, is impressive with cross-spoke tubeless wheels, Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires, adjustable USD forks and monoshock, and dual discs up front.
The X-Cape 650X is powered by a 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine that produces 60hp at 8,250rpm and a peak torque of 54Nm at 7,000rpm.
Plus, riding the bike off-road, we learned that the motor delivers punchy low-end torque, making the bike easy and fun to tackle the tough stuff.
In addition to its off-road capabilities, grippy Pirelli tyres, a low center of gravity and good weight distribution make it a suitable all-terrain vehicle for beginners.
Pricing for the X-Cape 650X has yet to be announced. The bike will compete against models such as the Kawasaki Versys 650, Triumph Tiger Sport 660 and Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT.
