Moto Morini is dead and six feet under.
And it's a shame because the Granpasso not only looks pretty and original, but its VTwin is undoubtly the best ever made (in terms of sensations/ease of use compromise).
I'd place my bet on Moto Guzzi Stelvio.

Hi NiK, MCN reported differently a couple of weeks back but then they are not always correct (as we all know) ...

I didn't hear that resurrection news!
I hope they'll go on proposing original, still classic, bikes!

And I maintain my opinion on their Twin: sound, torque, "elasticity", look... a true gem!
(and I don't like twins ;-)

A Stelvio would seem to fit in with those listed?
'08 Tiger Blue (Gone but not forgotten).....replaced with
'08 Guzzi Breva (the lump).
'05 Opal/Tangerine T-100 Bonnie
