The design is so perfect, the engine great (once the engine remap upgrade was installed), the idle adjuster added along with the fans going external, the number-plate holder being trimmed and the right tyre pressures!) However the drawback was that it spent more time in the dealers than on the road due to breakdowns.Had a habit of shutting off and locking the back wheel at low speed. (read more)

Forget all the problems with the early bikes. Buy a late one from a good dealer that has access to the right software and technical knowledge and you wont go far wrong.Great value now(2011). Fantastic cycle parts, engine, power, handling, exclusivity.I wanted a modern take on a laverda triple and this is about as close as it gets.There's nothing else available I would choose over this bike. People appear scared of these bikes with no reason. (read more)

After six weeks and 750 miles, the starter shaft broke up and punctured the small cap on top of the gearbox. This was repaired in three days as Benneli over-nighted the parts to the top of Scotland. You wont get sevice like that from anyone else except maybe Triumph. There's no dealers in Scotland but I bought one anyway from a bike shop in Inverness who's sold a few new Benneli's. I've since done 3500 miles mostly round Spain / France and loved every mile of it. (Benneli 1130 Sport Evo in... (read more)

After owning this bike for the 18 months I ended up moth balling it.
Reliability turned out to be zero. On a number of occasions I failed to make it home from a service. Totally un-reliable. Parts are horendous and support non-existant. Benelli parts are so bad that the mechanics have had to use 3rd party in preference.
The bike spent over 6 months sitting in the workshop waiting to be be fixed. The engine had numerous severe mechanical issues which I would not expect from a Korean bike,... (read more)

Absolutely the best bike Ive had and the last was a 07 gsxr750.The thrill factor has you laughing inside your helmet all ride.
There not perfect. They have their problems but mine has not let me down on the road just niggly things like the tacho needle parting company with the pin which was sorted on warranty. The best of that is its made by a Asian company which also makes the gixxer one.
Read about them at www.Benelliforum.com and take the plunge. theres far more fun in a Benelli that... (read more)

2007 Benelli TNT
Well I had the pleasure of taking a Benelli TNT for a test ride whilst I was down on holidays in Coffs Harbour, I turned up to at about 930 and had a good look at there range of Benelli's especially the TNT Caf Racer (as that was what I went to look at). After the salesman had finished his spiel on the Caf Racer it was time for a ride I got a standard TNT, while she was sitting there warming up I thought it sounded a bit rough and rattly but was assured this is normal so...

The Benelli TNT is abseloutly amazing, handeling, power, design etc. etc. The downsides are as to be expected the spareparts, FC and reliability... If you care about that... just buy a Japanese bike like everybody else. (read more)

As a previous poster said, parts for a Benelli TNT can be an issue. Expect to go through fuel and don't buy unless you have good mechanics on tap to look after you. But in saying that, yes I'd recommend it. It's one handful of a bike and flies, but would you really want to ride anything that doesn't give you a massive grin when you hit the throttle? (read more)
