Like most volume motorcycle manufacturers, MV worked to have suitable machnis in most categories, including offroad. The 350 Scrambler was released in November 1971, and used the scrambler formula born in the United States (unswept exhaust, protected lower engine, aggressive tires) but imbued with typical MV flair. The twin cilinder, alloy engine used 9.5:1 compression ratio, dual Dellorto UB 24 B2 carburators, and overhead valves to generate 32 HP at 750 rpm. Power was fed through a 5-speed gearbox to the rear tire by chain drive. Top speed was 145 km/h. MV built 217 - 350 Scramblers.
