Moto Morini Sold at Auction to Eagle Bike
The Moto Morini brand has been bought by Eagle Bike, a newly formed ompany that is run by two Italian entrepreneurs, Sandro Capotosti and Ruggeromassimo Jannuzzelli. However, we don't know who is really behind this company, which, as far as we can tell, could come from China or even the Middle East.
Eagle Bike have paid EUR1.96 million for the Morini brand name, IP and other assets, but not the actual real estate of the company. We still have to wait and see if any production continues, or what exactly will be done with the Morini name. But given that the new Eagle Bike motorcycle company hasn’t bought the former manufacturing premises anything could happen.
“The plan of the purchasing group is to relaunch the prestigious Italian brand Moto Morini, which has more than 80 years of history, and which has created motorbikes that have represented the dreams of entire generations: from useful daily transport in the post-war years, to the legendary competition bikes and the production, competition-derived series models,” the company statement reads.
“In the course of its history, the brand has won worldwide recognition from purists and fans, and with passion and a focus on quality, Eagle Bike is aiming at relaunching the motorcycle production an in innovative way, on both the Italian and international markets.”
