I owned a Tornado for 8 years. It was totally reliable, turned heads and attracted crowds more than my F4 ever does.

Make sure the clutch,z25 and core plug mods have been done

Bennett’s oop north are the people to speak to. I never had any issue getting parts.

Have a look over on www.benelliforum.com.

By the way, the noise that triple makes when it comes on song is highly addictive!

The Tre sold for how much??!! I call BS on that auction, Tre in mint condition can't seem to break $6k on the best, sunniest day of the year.

Kevin, just as well that it sold. I had an opportunity to buy one as part of the deal on a Bimota SB8R and passed for reasons of parts and service. I'm in Southern Cal and I would have some trouble sourcing parts, I'd imagine it to be that much tougher in your neck of the woods. I guess Bob Steinbugler would be a viable alternative but he's in NC. There might be more sources than that locally, don't really know though.

Fred, Benelli is a much better known and therefore easier to service brand in the UK. In the US the brand is associated with fine Italian firearms, not motorcycles.

I can get Benelli parts easier than MV parts. No reason to pass that amazing bike because of parts issues.

I enjoy looking at all rare & unusual bikes, but what what an eye-sore these things were!
What's up with those cooling fans in the tail?
How would pressing up against that weird tank feel?
How did Adrian Morton go from designing this, to the F3?

FZR 600 '93 red/white
F4 750 '03 red/silver
F3 800 '16 ABS red/silver

While perhaps not as stunningly beautiful as an MV or a Triumph 955, the Tornado 900 & 1130 are in my opinion, none the less gorgeous. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though, after all, Melania married your president.

Parts apparently can be an issue, if a Benelli was your only means of transport, you might be taking your chances, as you may have to wait a while for some parts, but they are apparently available, if sometimes expensive. I have heard that about MVs.

If you have more than one bike, I reckon the Tornado is an excellent and exotic addition to one's garage. I rode an un-faired Benelli triple (I think naked is a coarse expression) and it was an absolute hoot, the induction noise sounded like it was saying MORE. A hoon's bike, fer shure. The Tornados go, and handle, and are allegedly comfortable. Many owners report poor fuel economy, but I have heard that about MVs also, & I got about 50mpg out of the first tank of my F4, so that remains to be seen. There are enough owners that report 45mpg+ to suggest that economy is a lottery. It is fixable if it does happen, if you know about ECUs or are prepared to pay to have it sorted.

There is a Benelli forum for advice and support, one of the legends of the forum is an Aussie, again, just like MV, his bike has 135,000+ klms on it. Most owners seem to have multiple Benellis, and swear by them (& probably at them from time to time ), & it seems that the UK, or pommyland as we Aussies call it, is where the most owners are and where one can get parts with the most ease and rapidity. The MV importer in Aust is also the Benelli importer, so most MV dealers also do Benelli. Soul mates.

I think the consensus is that the 1130 is the better bike, but the 900 is different, apparently. As right said FredZX says, there were some clutch/starter issues, which should have been resolved by now, and aren't that hard a fix, and surprise surprise, they do get hot in traffic. Again, does this sound like MV?
