Purty? Since when is the Speed Triple a 'pretty' man's bike? I'm happy with my modified and thoroughly scratched up bastard child of a bike.

I like their Cafe Racer, but at 438 lbs I'd be questioning its handling compared to a Monster or Speed Triple. Also, those huge rad cowls have got to go...

I agree on the rad cowls, Kinda looks like Suzuki's B-King. I'd like to see some of their full on race bikes though.

I've read some tests in magazines with the Benelli vs S3 vs Tuono etc.

Outcome was that the Benelli is as light footed as the S3 with more torque and more HP's! The sound seen to be awesome.
It put's as much grin on the face as speedy.. Downsides are price, MPG and maintenance as far as i can remember..
The've also got one now with dry clutch which even puts more HP and torque on the road...

It does have more power and torque but it also has an extra 100cc and a premium price tag forthe bike, spare parts and servicing. not something I can afford. :???:

modify the S3 with the xtra money :cool:

dump the rad cowls and it'll look heaps better and less insect :)

I love the bad ass look on Benellis. They're a bit plasticy, but cool. I'm gonna go for a test ride in the spring. Not gonna buy one, but just for fun.

And there's a hot biker sales girl there too :razz:

Benelli was bought by a Chinese firm last summer, to compliment there line of scooters and to have an existing dealer network. Dont know if the quality will be better or worse but i wont be knowingly buying jack sh!t from any Chinese company. Just how i roll.

I checked one out at a dealer while I was shopping for a new bike, I was actaully looking at the MV brutale and I saw the Benelli In the showroom, the first thing it reminded me of is one of my kids transformer toys.

I wish I had the dough to own one. I think it looks both sexy & thugish...especially if it was black. I'd lose the rad cowels and headlamp setup for something a little more minimalist.

I sat on one at Road America, very nice. Fit me like a glove. I liked that you could switch between a "Street" or "Track" engine tune at the push of a button. If I could afford it, I'd own one! Don't tell Triple I said that, she'd be upset. She doesn't even know I sat on the Bennelli! :wink:
