They have a few others that look pretty much the same
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...
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 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:
