2015 Benelli TnT 1130R | Bike Tests | Used Bikes

The TnT (standing for Tornado Naked Tre) was one of the most visually striking machines of the last decade. When the Benelli TnT 1130 first hit the scene in 2004 it was the raw power and torque from the 1131cc triple that stood out almost as much as the unique styling. Fast forward a decade and the TnT still has that famed Italian styling flair and exotic high-end components with slipper clutch and an adjustable swingarm. And 116kW of power inevitably gives it a raw performance edge. Be prepared to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

What it’s got

The 1130R is powered by a liquid-cooled, 1131cc, three-cylinder, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine with four valves per cylinder. Power runs through a six-speed gearbox with dry slipper clutch.

The front suspension is a 50mm fully adjustable Marzocchi USD fork with 120mm of travel. The rear alloy tube trestle swingarm has a fully adjustable ZF Sachs shock, also with 120mm of travel.

Braking is handled by two 320mm discs on the front wheel clamped by four-piston radial-mount Brembo calipers, and a 240mm wave disc at the rear with a Brembo two-piston caliper. The fuel tank holds 16 litres.
