Moto Morini 125cc Turismo 1947

Morini 125 Turismo (1946-1955)

The Moto Morini T, (subsequntly the Turismo), rolled out of the factory in the summer of 1946, the first motorcycle produced by the Bologna company after the war. The two-stroke engine delivers 4.5 horsepower at 4.500 rpm via a three-speed gearbox. With various updates, including the adoption of telescopic forks and rear shock absorbers, it remained in the catalogue until 1955. The example in the Collezione Migliazzi is a Series II produced during the 1947-48 period and differs from the Series I in the design of the exhaust and the front guard stays, this one having one pair rather than two.
