2011 Benelli Century Racer 1130

The model TNT 1130 is also renewed with the introduction of a frame with a more sporting character, and, in addition to the modifications made on the TNT 899 version the folllowing components have been added: The totally adjustable rear shock absorber supplied by ZF SACHS; The engine mapping has been reset; Availability: March 2011 Colours: Centenary green

The model TNT 899 is reviewed with particular reference to the frame, giving this motorcycle a more sporting attitude: First of all the colour of the “centenary”: this is the green of the racing Benelli motorbikes of Pasolini in a modern interpretation; The introduction of the historical brand Benelli of the 60’s; The front fork “MARZOCCHI” becomes completely adjustable (DIA 50mm) and the finishing becomes black (black oxydation of the fork sliders); Use of front radial calipers “BREMBO”; Front brake discs (DIA 320mm) / rear (DIA 240mm), type “WAVE“ supplied by BRAKING; The seat is enriched thanks to the use of “alcantara” fabric; The “trim and colour” of the model has been renewed; The single-seat rear cowling has been introduced; The map of the engine has been reset; The camshaft cover and the spring of the rear shock absorber is now yellow and characterise the sporting touch of the Century Racer. Availability: March 2011 Colours: Centenary Green

Oldie but a good'ie. Funny how 2011 is "old" and Benelli has been gone out of the North American market now since 2012...

They didn't sell enough in North America, and there's a reason for that....

Looks way fast, but way too much going on. Fail for me.

I voted: Awesome

It is (was?) a great bike by a great company. Looks like Kawasaki might have borrowed the design for the Z800/z1000. Sadly, I've never seen a Benelli on the road, just at the motorcycle show and I remember a sticker shock look when I saw the MSRP. In fact, I think it's the only brand (that was sold in North America) I've never seen on the road now that I think of it. I guess that says something about not being around in North America, eh?

3 Cylinder, 1123cc, 218 kg weight, gave Triumph a run for their money... but that's all over... for now.

Nice looking bike, looks fast, even standing still.

Very, very true.

So many brands have suffered slow sales because of high prices. As a manufacturer, you NEED a line that is very affordable to get riders into your brand, and you NEED something that is the bread-and-butter seller to support those other crazy models you want to build.
