1980 Moto Morini 350 Strada

In Italy, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Moto Morini 3 1 / 2 is one of my favorite bikes from the 1970s. Expensive when it was released (the price point was comparative to bikes with twice the engine size), it was an incredible handler that was also capable of the ton. I’m still constantly surprised with how little attention the 3/2 gets, but I’m not surprised with the passion of the cult following this bike has accumulated. Today’s featured bike is a Moto Morini 350 Strada, the more civilized, touring-oriented brother of the 3 1/2 Sport.

Moto Morini 350 Strada - Tank

Powered by a 344cc (hence the 3 1/2 designation) with proprietary heads, this bike featured 39 horsepower to push just 320 pounds. Even when they were new, these bikes were rare, so you wouldn’t be remiss in thinking parts availability for these little jewels would be fruitless. I’m glad to report otherwise – the original US importer is still in business if you need spare parts. Want to learn more? Check out this fantastic write-up from Real Classic.
