    Finally America gets Benelli

    Ive had a 900 RS, for almost a year now, now problems at all with the Bike, except for the occasional clock reset issue,( I'm about to increase the battery cable thickness to aleviate the problem) with you guys now getting the revamped Tre 1130 and TnT's with the new owners cash injection I would thoroughly recommend them, mines sensational. the place to find out anything is www.benelliforum.com as most of you are aware, its a US based forum after all.
    I heard though a "source" that AF1 is going to be a benelli Dealer, finally some accessories will become available as Ive seen the awesome stuff they make for Aprilia's.

    Look forward to seeing more Yanks on em

    The new 1130 Tre really has my attention now....I love my Falco, but miss the big power of Jap litre bikes. The Tre looks like it might be a good mix of the two....

    Anyone know what the MSRP will be?

    I always thought that was one of the most beautiful bikes out there.

    There´s a dealer near my workplace with two TNT´s in stock,one black TNT Sport with fully adjustable forks and shock,electronic torque limiter etc and the regular TNT (yellow).Got to love these machines,they are really beautiful and well built,I was thinking of buying one when I bought my Tuono but Benelli had financial problems at that time and there wasn´t any dealer nearby.Today it´s the only bike that could make me trade my Tuono...

    It's been a while but haven't I seen that picture before. I'm still looking for a dealer for that TNT.
    Take care

    Talking Benelli arrival

    Yeah i think they're great....have a soft spot for the brand as used to own a very pretty 1968 350 benelli in cafe racer style....rosso corsa paint, grey leather seat, lovely!

    Ridden tornado and tornado rs...absolutely loved them..the sound , the torque, the handling, everything.....me and one mate , him on tornado...me on rs chasing each other round the countryside on an extended demo ride....fantastic

    Loved both...standard tre makes easier to live with road bike , but rs is brilliant to ride fast....

    also ridden the TNT and that is barking mad......more mental than a tuono R!

    great lots of torque..just wants to wheelie everywhere...just ride with a constant stupid smile on your face !!
    Preferred it to the 750 brutale...that is so peaky and revvy.....handling stunning but you thing you''re killing the engine you have to rev it so much to get anywhere....a friend's just got the 910 version tho so that should be a bit torquier

    enjoy guys....hope they succeed.
    Enjoy

    My local dealer has a TnT in the showroom. I suspect he is getting sick of having to wipe my drool off the window every morning... It is shouting buy me every time I walk by.

    Anybody had any experience of riding one? He has a second hand one in which I might take for a test ride....

    what's this Trevor, eye-tie beauties still got you spellbound then?
    They had a green and silver Tre in D&K, it really is a gorgeous hunk of metal and plastic.

    Rob,

    I am a bike gigilo. The only bike I have ever wanted to keep for any length of time was the Falco. I loved that Italian girl, but she had to go when her front and rear got sloppy.

    The big Jap bird is still giving me smiles but the Benelli is just so gorgeous. What is a guy to do?

    Not so interested in the Tre as she would kill my back. I can't stoop like that anymore. The TnT does it for me. You know I like them naked.

    T
