Moto Morini Kanguro and DART

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Kodwa kwiincam koluhlu uya kufumana i-DART super-amahle kunye rufty-tufty Kanguro. Ngoko ke wenza njani Ken Philp uza ngumnikazi kokubili?

Ndaqala ndabona Kanguro kwiNkundla Zizi ngo 1982, yaye wachukunyiswa njengoko off-kwendlela V-iwele. Ndibene ingxaki sezonyango 1984, ngoko Wayilahla Bikes eziliqela kunye wathenga le, wokuqala Kanguro abenawo NLM evenkileni.

Lwaqhubeka nje xa ndifuna ukuba! Oku Wandinika ubunzulu iziyolo ngaphandle kwendlela, naphezu ubunzima bayo, kwaye Ndingu shortie – 5'5. I kuphela besusa kulo 2003 kuba kuphela 15% Umthamo womoya ngoku.

Andikwazi ndithi kukho nantoni ANDIZANGE oyithandayo ngayo. Ndandidla ukuba enduros, trail-ikhwele, Weston Beach Race, nezilingo-long distance, kwaye nangokunjalo, kanye ezazigqunywe 720 iikhilomitha 20 iiyure kwisiganeko MCC.

Xa iyonke I igutyungelwa 16,000 miles. Kwakungekho iingxaki real, kuphela abo andinatyala!

Nabani na ukuthenga Kanguro kufuneka sihlale ecacileyo yokuqala X-imifuziselo. Le X1 kunye X2 yenkqu tubular, kwaye X neentanda isakhelo ngexesha footrest kwindawo ekunene. Le X1 iye unyanzeliso khona.

Le isibane kuphela AC ukukhanya ngqo, ngoko output liyatshintsha ngesantya injini. Kwakhona inkqubo izibane 6-volt, esinebhetri encinane KAKHULU!

ke, akuba lalibukele Kanguro ukusuka entsha, Ngokwenene gqitha motor. Emva koko ndabona ifoto ngomkhonto entsha kumaphephandaba, 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.
