Moto Morini Kanguro at kumaskas

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. But at opposite ends of the scale you’ll find the super-sleek Dart and the rufty-tufty Kanguro. So how did Ken Philp comes to own both?

I first saw a Kanguro at Earls Court in 1982, and was impressed as it was an off-road V-twin. I had a medical problem in 1984, kaya nakuha mapupuksa ng ilang mga bikes at binili ng isang ito, ang unang Kanguro na NLM sa shop.

Nagpatuloy lang ito sa tuwing gusto kong ito! Ito ay nagbigay sa akin ng isang PULUTONG ng mga kasiyahan sa off-road, sa kabila ng kanyang timbang, at ako 'y isang shortie – 5' 5. Ko lang nakuha mapupuksa ng mga ito sa 2003 dahil mayroon lamang akong 15% kakayahan ng baga ngayon.

Hindi ko masasabi na nagkaroon ng anumang bagay na hindi ko gusto tungkol dito. Ginamit ko ang mga ito para sa mga enduros, daan-pagsakay, Weston Beach lahi, malayuang pagsubok, at marami pang iba, at minsan na sakop 720 milya ang layo sa 20 oras sa MCC pangyayari.

Sa kabuuang sakop ko ang tungkol sa 16,000 milya. Walang tunay na problema, yaon lamang na mga kasalanan ko!

Sinuman ang pagbili ng isang Kanguro dapat linawin ng unang X-modelo. Ang X1 at X2 may pantubo frame, at ang X bitak ang frame sa kanan apakan punto. Ang X1 ay pampalakas doon.

The headlamp is only AC direct light, so output varies with engine speed. It’s also a 6-volt lighting system, with a VERY small battery!

So, having owned the Kanguro from new, I really was very impressed with the motor. Then I saw a photo of a new Dart in the press, and wasn’t too impresseduntil I saw one close-up at the Earls Court Show in 1998. I positively DROOLED!

So I watched NLM unpack the first one they had from Harglo, and bought it straight away.

It’s a June 1990-registered Moto Morini Dart, so is now almost 16 years old. It’s got 54,000km on it and is still in very good condition. It’s had a few mods, all done by melike the right foot gearchange / left foot brake, a Honda NTV650 hydraulic adjuster on the rear Marzocchi monoshock, alloy tank, and handlebar raisers.

I also fitted it with a KN air filter, with suitable jet changes, and a Y-piece in the exhaust in place of the unobtainable expansion chamber, and a Micron exhaust can off a Ducati 750SS. The latter was done partly to reduce weight, partly to make it sound a proper V-twin! It’s also had extra spacers slotted in above the internal fork springs.

Without doubt, its best features are its looks, and performance. The Dart is not particularly fast (I’ve seen a max of 101.1mph on my digital cycle speedowhich is very accurate, by the way), but the handling is SUPERB! It’s also economical and has given 64mpg over its life (I have a record of all the fuel used from new).

It’s comfortable for a shortie, and it’s taken us on a couple of Continental tours two-up.
