Like a hand made suit the Cafe Racer is made to measure for the most exclusive motorcyclists.

Stand out from the crowd without exageration.

Small differences make for a great riding satisfaction.





PROJECT

The design idea used for the development of the Cafè Racer was that of creating a TNT inspired by the racing bikes of the past, but with a series of unique, sophisticated details to make it modern and effective.

The result is a motorcycle with an extraordinary personality - a bike which simultaneously offers riding comfort and extreme performance thanks to its exceptional components: a higher and more protective windscreen for greater aerodynamic protection, lower clip-on handlebars in aluminium alloy, single seat ballypan and tailpiece to experience the thrills of riding a true racer alone, eccentric foot board adjustment system, carbon parts and seat support.
As with the design, the colour was also inspired by the past for an exceptional aesthetic impact and to make the Café Racer even more exclusive in the world gamma of the Streetfighters.

A little recent blast from the past from Benelli, when Benelli was Italian and not Chinese owned. I picked the 2010 vs the 2011 simply because I liked our (TMW) press photos more. But the same bike.

Enjoy!

I gave it a cool vote...the 3cyl is kind of original, but with Triumph, Yamaha & MV Agusta using them...not that rare anymore.

The styling is a mix of Buell 1125 CR & Suzuki B-King...but it's a naked bike, so I like it!

Later.

I'm sure it goes like Jack-the-bear but I just don't think it looks all that naked. Too many farkles already. And what is the list price? (Not that I'm in the market for this kind of bike but it is an important factor for those who are).

Uncool.

Putting aside the fact that they are notoriously problem stricken, as well as the fact you would likely have issues getting parts for it, and maybe the fact that they were so overpriced combined with the previously mentioned facts that they stayed on the showroom floor for years - the bloody thing is ridiculously ugly. If you have seen one up close you have likely noticed how the paint on the frame looks like a teenager painted it in shop class too.

I don't know if I have ever wanted to give a bike on the cool wall a lower rating.

I almost never give a fail or an awesome, holding the extreme ratings in reserve for the extreme, but this is a fail.

What is a Cafe Racer? Is a Cafe Racer defined by clip-on handlebars? This moto has lots of ugly angular junk bolted on all over the frame, exactly the type of junk any self respecting ton-up boy is going to strip off a bike at the first opportunity. Where exactly is the clean utilitarian minimalism? Instead, this motorcycle screams excess.

Uncool. Ugly colors, bulbous styling (the radiator/indicator pods are especially hideous), terrible reputation for parts and service, and the Cafe Racer name is inappropriate, pretentious, and vaguely insulting to people who know and love cafe racers. I'd much rather get a 2010 Speed Triple.

I voted: Cool

I can see it's limitations but to me, especially in the gold/black colour scheme, I really like it. It represents Benelli and like any very limited production model the parts issues come with it, but in the end, you get something unique and special. Not sure about the riding position (for me) but it looks like a lot of fun to ride. :revv:

Price, well, I guess if you can afford it, you are not looking for cheap and cheerful. :)

Your Coolness Factor of the 2010 Benelli Cafe Racer 1130 is:

Awesome (3 points) 9% [ 3 ]
Cool (2 points) 59% [ 19 ]
Uncool (1 point) 22% [ 7 ]
Fail (0 point) 9% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 32


= a Coolwall Factor of 56.3%

NOTES: Oddly shaped exotic beauty. Not for everyone and not everyone can own or afford it, but for some tastes it just plain works. A rear shame this represents the end (for now) of the Italian owned Benelli era.

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
