If you are looking at this. then you already know that these Moto Morinis are renowned for their razor-sharp handling and their nimble. fun-to-ride nature. This one is no exception. The V-twin is surprisingly powerful for a 350 and road tests had their top speed around 100 MPH. The 6-speed trans is a delight to use. snicking up or down with a left-hand shifter that was much improved over earlier versions. The dry clutch is easy to pull but it never slips. It starts easily with the kicker and it also has an electric starter that works-sometimes. These engines have a reputation for reliability and durability. They need very little maintenance with their electronic ignition and simple screw-type valve adjusters. When I bought the bike four years ago I was amazed at its excellent original condition. When I got it home I changed the oil. cleaned the oil filter and adjusted the valves. Since it had the original timing belt. I changed it for a new one that I got from North Leceister Motorcycles. They are the experts on these and they have a great stock of parts. They hold the K2 model in very high regard. I have since put about 750 miles on it. Some of those were from riding it in the Cycle World Rolling Concours at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2012. It was in the Modern Classic class along with some really over-the-top restorations. so I felt almost guilty about it winning 3rd place since all I had to do was wash it!The bike shows well. but there are the inevitable imperfections that one finds in a used. original bike. The windscreen is cracked. The flopping keys have worn the paint away at the ignition switch. There are a few nicks. the worst is shown in the pics. The 350 K2 was the ultimate development of the much-loved 3 1/2 Morini. It received many improvements- Nikasil cylinders. improved shifting. and most importantly. triple disc brakes which make this the one you really want to ride in modern-day traffic. These K2s are a very rare bike in the USA. The only other one I have come across is in the Barber Museum and it is silver with red accents. $500 deposit via Paypal within 24 hours of auction end.
