adventure machine . It ’ s nice and roomy , fairly smooth-sided ( making it easy to use a standing riding position ) and has a screen for weather protection . The screen worked well for me in the low position as it is tall-ish anyway . On the tall setting I got a little buffeting on my helmet peak . The adjustment is a little ‘ Mickey Mouse ’ though , because if the screws were loose enough to allow adjustment the screen rattled , so I just left it in the low position and tightened the screws . The Moto Morini X-Cape 649 is one of those bikes that puts a smile on your face when you know that perhaps it shouldn ’ t . At the spec sheet it is not the most winning ride , however , in use it ’ s very pleasantly surprising and I genuinely enjoyed riding it . It under promises and over delivers , and that alone makes it a wonderful thing . If you want a practical , great looking bike that delivers in an unpretentious , yet capable and fun ride – look no further than the X-Cape .
