Moto Morini 125cc Super Sport (1948-1951)

The Morini Super Sport first appeared in 1948. The 125cc engine develops 7.5 horsepower at 6.500 rpm and is reportedly capable of 100 miles per hour. In 1951, the last year of production, it was updated with new chassis, telescopic forks and swingarm rear suspension. In 1952 the Super Sport was no longer offered in the catalogue, leaving the Turismo and the Sport which now share many of the developments from their faster sibling. The example in the Migliazzi collection is from the first series.
