The approach of EICMA, the most important motorcycle show that will open in a month in Milan, always brings news in the two-wheeler business. Today's announcement is one of those that make noise: the historic Moto Morini brand passes to the Chinese of Zhongneng, an international giant in the production of scooters based in Taizhou, about 400 km south of Shanghai. The signing of the deed of sale is today after a long negotiation with the Milan office of the multinational Translink as advisor. From sources close to the operation, it is known that the initial valuation of the company in Trivolzio (Pavia) started at 12 million euros and the operation would have ended with a benefit for the seller of slightly less than 10 million.

From the press release issued by Morini we learn that "Dr. Ruggero Massimo Jannuzzelli, representative of the outgoing shareholder and president of Moto Morini, declares that, with the offer of Zhongneng Vehicle Group, he has gathered an excellent opportunity for the future of the company and of the historic Italian brand". "After that in 2015 my family through Autjann (the holding company of the family) became the owner of 100% of the capital of the company at its logistical debut in the province of Pavia - explains Jannuzzelli - began a path of development of the bike for the adjustment to the euro 4 followed by the creation of new models adapted to the current market. From here were born the Corsair ZZ, the Corsair ZT, the Milan and the new Scrambler. In addition to this activity - continues Jannuzzelli - for three years we have worked on the creation of brand value and products to bring them to the high end of the market for quality, construction methods and prestige. Now - concludes Jannuzzelli - let's reap the benefits of this work, leaving the baton to a private Chinese industrial group that is already present with its products in Europe and around the world.

From the press release we also learn that "Mr. Chen, president of Zhongneng has major projects to increase the activity of the company that will remain in the Italian territory, projects that concern both current products and new models even of different displacements. "We are sure - concludes the press release - to entrust Moto Morini, its employees, its suppliers and its loyal customers to an important industrial reality that will make the company grow well. Mr. Chen Huaneng is the founder of the scooter giant. Since 1998 the company has been constantly expanding and now produces 300,000 two-wheelers a year, mainly scooters with endothermic and electric engines, but also motorcycles between 50 and 250 displacement and loose engines. Mr Chen, as far as we know, will become managing director of Morini and the brand, known for its powerful 1200cc twin cylinder engine, will serve as a basis for European penetration and will also serve as a research and development centre. This would be the reason behind the confirmation of all the workers, with a view to strengthening in the short term.

en zo gaat europa in de uitverkoop . . . . Overigens: geen slechte deal voor Jannuzzelli himself, misschien ook niet voor Moto Morini, omdat de Chinezen (veel) geld in het merk kunnen pompen. En dat levert hopelijk meer modellen en meer dealers op.

Ik hoop op een mooi lichtgewichtje, naar het schijnt heeft Lambertini nog een 8-kleps 350 in het snotje, of iets moois zoals de SWM's? We gaan het zien!

De reactie van Franco Lambertini:

"Proprio non ne sapevo nulla - esordisce Lambertini - questa notizia ha sorpreso anche me. Oltretutto è da almeno un anno che non ho contatti con Jannuzzelli. Ad ogni modo penso sia una notizia positiva, perché almeno con la nuova proprietà il marchio verrà salvaguardato e vivrà ancora. Presumo che vedremo i loro scooter marchiati Moto Morini, ma ripeto ben venga una proprietà cinese se farà sopravvivere un marchio che altrimenti sarebbe stato destinato alla soppressione. Jannuzzelli in questa avventura ci ha rimesso cifre importanti e inevitabilmente non poteva continuare così. Di soldi non ne voleva più investire, sapevo che voleva cedere; dobbiamo solo essergli grati per aver tenuto il marchio in piedi. Se lavorerò con loro? Non so, io sono un libero professionista, se mi chiamassero sarei ben lieto di collaborare con loro, ma finora non ho sentito nessuno, anche perché non ho alcun contatto".
"In Morini attualmente lavorano una quindicina di persone e quei posti di lavoro saranno salvi - riprende l'ing. Lambertini - E' un bene che qualcuno ci creda, che poi siano i cinesi poco conta. Del resto per rimanere in vita a un'industria motociclistica servono i numeri e nelle moto questi numeri in Italia nessuno è in grado di farli. La stessa Ducati che è grande e strutturata bene va avanti con difficoltà, nonostante venda e abbia una forte promozione internazionale derivata dalle corse."

"La moto - aggiunge l'ing. Franco Lambertini - è sempre costata di più della auto in proporzioone all'oggetto. E con i numeri bassi proprio non si riesce andare ad avanti. Occorrono dei volumi di produzione e vendita che in Italia nessuno riesce a fare, parlo di moto naturalmente e non di scooter. Si fa molta fatica a fare economia di scala, non tanto per il motore che può venire utilizzato per più di un modello, quanto per gli altri componenti di carrozzeria che compongono la struttura esterna, come serbatoio, fiancatine e sella. Uno stampo in plastica, anche piccolo, costa 30-40.000 euro, così per una moto si possono spendere anche 500-600.000 euro. E recuperare quei soldi su più modelli è un'impresa impossibile facendo numeri relativamente bassi. Il guadagno diventa un'utopia. Una volta anche in Cina lavoravano con numeri limitati, adesso non è più così: per meno di diecimila pezzi neanche ti guardano in faccia. Comunque lo ribadisco: che siano benvenuti i cinesi, almeno la Moto Morini esisterà ancora".

Er wordt met geen woord gerept over de rol van de Italiaanse investeringsmaatschappij Autjann, die het bedrijf in 2015 overnam. Of heeft dat bedrijf het deel van Sandro Capotosti overgenomen :?: :?: :?:

Hier trouwens de website van Zhongneng: http://www.znen.com/
Best wel mooie scooters. Twee motorfietsen (als 125cc of 200cc): de F66 en de F68 :D Design ziet er goed uit!
