Benelli struggle on with style

Although Benelli hasn't gone the way of compatriots Moto Morini (which went into administration last year), there's no doubt it has been struggling, with model updates limited to minor revisions on a now ageing range of nakeds and sportsters based around the Pesaro-firm's charismatic three-cylinder engine. The new TNT R160 is the latest example of the breed. Effectively Benelli's only ...

Video: Is a Yamaha R6 worth £3000 more than a Benelli Tornado 900?

Not all superbikes costs silly money. The latest offers from Benelli sees its once £11,700 Tornado Tre 900 now priced at just £5999, making the exotic Italian a surprising, alternative, bargain. Let's put that in perspective for a moment. Prices of Japanese bikes have continued to escalate, with the once massively popular 600 Supersport class, in particular, seeing prices increase ...

Most powerful Benelli TNT ever with TNT160R

The Benelli TNT range also gets this TNT160R model which has a 160bhp version of the 1130cc inline triple engine along with a series of changes to the frame, mapping and brakes seen on the Century Racers. The TNT160R gets a dry slipper clutch over the wet clutch in the standard bikes along with a much higher compression ratio. The ...

Benelli Tre K 899 (2009-current)

This is the smaller engined version of Benelli’s brilliant, but unfortunately rare Tre K 1130  sports tourer. We rate it highly: it’s comfy, easy to ride, sounds great, handles well and has a wild side for when the mood takes you. It’s not the obvious choice, which will actually a plus-point for many, but some will be sceptical, worried about ...

Benelli TNT 899S (2008-current)

The Benelli TNT super naked has been with us now, almost unchanged since 2004. Early 1130cc models were snarling, brutal, wheelie-prone monsters with a savage-sounding wail from its three into one underseat exhaust. But these very early models could be temperamental things, but since Benelli was bought by the Chinese Qiangiang Group (they produce over 1.2-million two-wheelers a year over ...
