    I don't see benelli presence in the US as being long term so parts will be a huge nightmare.

    USA is one of the major markets in the world. Benelli is owed by a Chinese company that already invested over close to $10 million if I am correct. The bikes are now pretty reliable but as with any Italian bikes have their quirks. Engines are very powerfull. They need to tighten they fit and finish quality control and they will be on their way.

    I am not in the know but I thinkn they will be coming back with a vengeance to US market

    I'm not sure as too Benelli's US presence (I'm an optimist in thinking that they won't be going anywhere) but service is something to look into before you make a purchase.

    Maniac Motors in Germany, and Brabant Motors in Holland, plus MotoGB in the UK can easily source parts if the USA importer doesnt have things on the shelf.
