1967 – Two years from the debut, in 1967 a version was put on sale which was even more improved and corrected. For this type 2 with a more rounded petrol tank a frame was adapted (always from Ronzani), made stronger and adapted to an off-road machine.
At the same time the range was widened and the motorcycle was offered in three different cylinder sizes:
100 cc (50 mm x 50 mm), 9 cv at 10.000 rpm, carb. 20mm Dell’Orto
125 cc (56 mm x 50 mm), 10,5 cv at 9.000 rpm, carb. 20mm Dell’Orto
160 cc (58 mm x 58 mm), 13 cv at 9.200 gm, carb 22mm Dell’Orto

The gearbox stayed a four speed model.
There were many significant changes over the first series. Firstly, the various racing necessities were removed – useless grilles disappeared and the search for lightness and efficiency was increased. The tubular frame with the screw-held cradle construction reinforced at the rear and a wide grille appeared at the rear with a double cradle.
The open exhaust exiting on the left hand side was modelled along the lines of the frame and passed between the rear wheel and the shock absorber, well protected against any shocks and far away from the rider’s legs.
The petrol tank was rounded, the small oil tank for lubricating the chain was moved to the outside, under the seat, and was vertical, parallel to the frame rail.
The machines continued to use Ceriani shock absorbers on the rear and the drive train was improved with the addition of very new Bonazzi forks with exposed tubing.

The use of fibre glass was extended to the exterior mudguard and the large chain guard; The tool kit was still housed under the seat even if the shape was different.
The rear number holders, also in fibre glass, were in a mono block which included, at the centre, a small and useful tool holder (or air box holder) with a number of hooks for elastics.
On the left side of this second model, at the height of the seat, there was a very useful metal inflator.
Wheels were still 18 inch and the rear 19 inch.

1967 was an especially fortunate year for Morini.
With the advent of the new model the whole field was defeated and there were virtually no more rivals in the Italian Championship where Edoardo Dossena conquered the 100cc class at the ‘Bergamo Valleys’ and Giovanni Collina took the 125 class, Alessandro Gritti took the 175cc.
Morinis were prominent also on the international stage, always the best among the Italians. There was a very good overall fifth position for Alessandro Gritt in the 150cc class at the Bergamo Valleys competition, followed by Edoardo Dossena in eighth poition, 100 cc.
At the Polish six days competition in Zakopane (17/22 September) Edoardo Dossena (Morini 100) and Franco Dall'Ara (Morini 125) both took golds and this was accompanied by the bronze medal of Giuseppe Signorelli (Morini 100).
Il 1967 fu un anno particolarmente fortunato per la Morini.
Con il nuovo modello sbaragliò il campo e non ebbe praticamente rivali nel Campionato Italiano dove Edoardo Dossena, conquistò la classe 100 cc, Giovanni Collina la classe 125 ed Alessandro Gritti la classe 175 cc.
Le Morini si misero in luce anche sulla scena internazionale, sempre le migliori fra le italiane: ottimo il quinto posto assoluto di Alessandro Gritti, 150 cc, alla Valli Bergamasche, seguito da Edoardo Dossena 8°, 100 cc.
Alla Sei Giorni polacca di Zakopane (17/22 settembre), brillarono le due medaglie d’oro di Edoardo Dossena (Morini 100) e Franco Dall'Ara (Morini 125), accompagnate dal bronzo di Giuseppe Signorelli (Morini 100).
