    Moto Morini has launched four products in the Indian market, with prices starting at Rs 6.89 lakh for the Seiemmezzo Retro Street and going up to Rs 7.40 lakh for the flagship X-Cape 650X adventure bike. 

    • All models powered by the same 649cc engine 
    • X-Cape 650 rivals Versys 650, Tiger Sport 660
    • Seiemmezzo Retro Street rivals Kawasaki Z650RS

    Moto Morini bikes India pricing, features and rivals

    The most affordable Moto Morini is the Seiemmezzo Retro Street roadster, priced at Rs 6.89 lakh, while the Seiemmezzo Scrambler commands a slightly higher asking price of Rs 6.99 lakh. These bikes are powered by a liquid-cooled 649cc parallel-twin engine making 55hp and 54Nm and share most cycle parts, except for the wheels and tyres they come shod with.

    Perhaps the Moto Morini products most suited to some of our broken road conditions are the X-Cape 650 adventure bikes. The X-Cape 650 range starts at Rs 7.20 lakh for the standard model with cast alloy rims and goes up to Rs 7.40 lakh for the 650X with tubeless wire-spoke wheels. These middleweight adventure bikes are powered by the same 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, although they make slightly higher peak output figures here – 60hp and 54Nm.

    All Moto Morini products sold in India come equipped with features such as a TFT dash (larger on the X-Cape models), Pirelli tyres, dual-channel ABS and all-LED lighting. Further, the X-Cape adventure bikes even feature two riding modes to better complement their off-road character.

    The Seiemmezzo Retro Street is aimed squarely at the neo-retro Kawasaki Z650RS (Rs 6.92 lakh), and is priced nearly on par with it. It is slightly heavier and makes less power than the Z650RS, but is much more feature-rich. The Scrambler doesn’t have any natural rivals in this price or performance bracket, although the smaller Benelli Leoncino 500 and the Ducati Scrambler 800 fall at either end of its competition spectrum.

    Moto Morini’s X-Cape 650 adventure bikes are going up against some tough competition in the middleweight adventure bike segment from more established brands. The standard X-Cape 650 goes up against the Kawasaki Versys 650 (Rs 7.36 lakh) and the significantly dearer Triumph Tiger Sport 660 (Rs 8.95 lakh). We have compared the latter two and you can see the video here. Then there’s the X-Cape 650X, which goes up against the proven Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, although the Suzuki is priced significantly above the Italian offering at Rs 8.88 lakh and doesn’t boast of as many features.
