Scoot into the future

Stylishly aerodynamic, fast and super-convenient, the fuel-injected Morphous is the scooter of the future today.


Key Features:
21st century style and engineering combine to produce the most radically styled yet highly functional scooter ever.
249cc DOHC four-stroke engine produces a broad powerband.
There’s room for a passenger to ride in comfort and plenty of cargo room under the flip-up seat and in the Morphous’ big trunk.
Long, low design looks completely unique and results in excellent handling.
A seat only 25.8 inches high makes getting on and off a breeze.

249cc DOHC single produces a broad powerband from a compact, fuel-efficient package.
There’s pushbutton electric starting, of course.
Fuel injection ensures excellent performance under a wide range of conditions.
V-belt fully automatic transmission makes the Morphous a complete twist-the-throttle-and-go proposition.

Telescopic front fork soaks up the rough stuff, provides a smooth ride and great handling.
Coil-over shock controls the rear unit swingarm/engine, for great bump absorption and a smooth ride.
Hydraulic disc brakes front and rear provide excellent stopping power.
Unique custom-looking wheels are light and strong.
Fat, 13-inch radial tires provide outstanding traction and highway-speed handling.

Additional Features:
Ergonomically sculpted saddle is comfortable for long rides even with a passenger; a wrap-around grab handle makes it easy to secure people and things.
Two locking underseat storage compartments can each hold a helmet and various other items.
Front glove box swallows two rain suits with ease.
Aerodynamic design and windshield cut cleanly through the air and provide excellent wind protection.
Futuristic digital instrument panel contains speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and other functions.
Completely integrated multireflector headlight provides excellent nighttime illumination.
Bright, full-width LED taillight and dual turn signals make the Morphous highly visible from behind.
Large, easy-to-see integrated turn signals add to the extremely swoopy look.
