Apart from the history of Morini, the 2-cylinder 3½ has become a real icon in motorcycling as a whole. One of the first advertisements for that model said, “It’s only got two cylinders, but it shows a lot more”. And never has a slogan lived up to its word so convincingly, given the performance of the 4-stroke engine, which was way better than that of the opposition. Reduced fuel consumption, excellent road handling and a range capable of satisfying all palates (with the GT series born of the Turismo to the lively Sport), they were the strong points of the 3½ which, for those reasons, enjoyed immediate success. The book covers the technical and industrial stories of all the models, having availed itself of a series of spectacular photographic sessions organised specifically for it, enabling all enthusiasts to rediscover a motorbike that really did make history.
