Didn't some guy ride a modern Benelli across the Sahara ? Dusty
I worked at the dealership here in SC. The photo is mine from a trip to Edisto Island. Wicked fun. That motor is awesome with handling beyond reproach. Set up needs some fiddling. Thirsty without it and quirky fueling. The distributor was in Texas and I don't think they ever had the desire to make things work. Dealers saw the economic handwriting and stayed away. And yet, they sell like gangbusters everywhere else. Glad to have one.
The modern Benelli motorcycles are nice bikes and they get good reviews. I always thought they were under-appreciated in the US. Their website shows a number of newer, smaller displacement bikes, so they are apparently still very much alive.
Hmm, don't know of the build location for the smaller ones. I'll ask the lads on the Benelli Forum. There is some video on 'tube of mine and loads of others. The 600 seems nice but I want to ride the 750 Due.
Right, the Tornado Tre. Nice bike. Cool propellers.Not many for sale but did find one in Portland:http://www.turn2motorcycles.com/Vehicle/84478/2005-BENELLI-Tornado-TRE.html
I'd be willing to bet the small displacement bikes are of Chinese origin, with little of anything Italian about them except the name.
What is that? Rear mounted oil cooler and cooling fans?
;D Seriously, that is fuggly.
Those are the fans. The radiators are further inboard, under the seat. There is ductwork to direct airflow over the radiators, while the twin electric fans help extract the warmed air from behind them.The idea is to better distribute weight and improve handling, by moving the engine as far forward in the chassis as possible, while centralizing total mass.Harley-Davidson experimented with a similar set-up in the early 1980's, although their reasons for doing so were more aesthetic than performance-orientated. Supposedly, Willie Davidson hated the look of a visible radiator on a motorcycle, but management wanted to explore water-cooling for emissions and competitive reasons. The result was the Nova prototype:http://big-diesel.blogspot.com/2007/09/nova-harley-davidson-which-was-never.html
Clears that up. Thanks.
