Moto Morini Kanguro an Dart

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Mee bei Géigendeel Enn vun der Skala fannt Dir d'super-Dios Dart fannen an der rufty-tufty Kanguro. Sou wéi hutt Ken Philp kënnt souwuel fir eege?

Ech gesinn éischter e Kanguro am Earls Geriichtshaff zu 1982, an war beandrockt wéi et en ugefaangen-Strooss V-Brudder war. Ech hat eng medezinesch Problem an 1984, sou ass vun e puer Vëlo lass an dat ee kaaft, déi éischt Kanguro déi NLM am Buttek no.

Et huet just lass wann ech et nach net! Et huet mech vill Spaass ugefaangen-Strooss, trotz sengem Gewiicht, an ech eng shortie – 5"5. Ech krut just vun et lass an 2003 well ech nëmmen hu 15% Hëftprothes Muecht elo.

Ech kann net soen, et war alles, datt ech net doriwwer wéi. Ech benotzt fir enduros, Trail-Reiden, Weston Beach Race, laang-Distanz Utilisatioun, a sou weider, an eemol Daach 720 Kilometer am 20 Stonnen op eng MCC Manifestatioun.

Am ganzen Daach ech iwwer 16,000 Meilen. Et waren keng real Problemer, déi eenzeg, déi sech meng Schold!

Jiddereen e Kanguro kaafen soll kloer vun den éischte X-Modeller halen. D'X1 a X2 hunn Bléien Rummen, an der X Splécken der Rumm op der rietser footrest Punkt. D'X1 huet: nee et.

D'headlamp ass nëmmen AC direkt Liichtjoer, sou Wasserstoff individuell mat Moteur Vitesse. Et ass och e 6-Volt Beliichtung System, mat engem ganz klenge Batterie!

sou, no der Kanguro vum neie Besëtz, Ech war wierklech ganz beandrockt mat de Motor. Da gesinn ech eng Foto vun enger neier Dart an der 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.
