Moto Morini Kanguro û Dart

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Lê belê, li çar aliyên dijber ên bi pîvana hûn ê Dart super-sleek û rufty-tufty Kanguro bibînin. Îcar çawa Ken Philp bê ku xwe him di?

Ez yekem a Kanguro li earls Dadgeha dît ku li 1982, û bi bandor bû, lê wek off-road bike-twin bû. Pirsgirêka min a tibî hebû li 1984, da çend bikes xelas bûm, kirrîn û ev yek, ya yekem Kanguro ku NLM di firoşgehê de hebû.

Ev tenê dihat gava Min dixwest ku! Ev da min gelek kêfxweş off-road, tevî giraniya xwe, û ez a shortie im – 5'5. Ez bi tenê ji ew li xelas bûm, 2003 ji ber ku ez bi tenê ji 15% kapasîteya pişikên niha.

Ez nikarim bêjim ku bû tiştekî ku ez li ser wê hez nakim hene. Ez jî ji bo enduros bikaranîn, trail bike-riding, Weston Beach Race, ceribandinên dirêj-dûr, wate ya vê çîye, û careke nixumandî 720 miles di 20 saetan de li ser bûyereke MCC.

Bi giştî ez nixumandî li ser 16,000 miles. ti pirsgirêkên rast hene, Bi tenê yên ku sûcê min bûn!

Kesê kirîna a Kanguro divê zelal ya yekem X-modelên biparêze. The X1 û X2 heye frames tubular, û derzên X li çarçovê de li ber footrest mafê. The X1 heye xurtkirina hene.

The headlamp bi tenê ronahiya direct AC e, da encam bi leza engine tê guhertin. Ev jî bi sîstema ronîkirina 6-volt, bi pîl gelekî piçûk û!

Wiha, Piştî ku firot ya Kanguro ji nû, Ez bi rastî bi motor pir bi bandor bû. Hingê min dît ku photo of a Dart nû di çapemeniyê de, 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.
