2013 Benelli Tornado Naked TRE899
Aggressive and entertaining. Benelli TNT 899 never loses its identity and year after year is a certainty for all the lovers of sports bikes. TNT 899 is even more appealing in new matt black colour combined with the flame-red frame, which gives it a special charm while boosting its sporty and original design, characterised by the faceted surfaces, the compact tail guard and the exhaust manifolds.
The frame is made of a trestle steel front and adjoining aluminium alloy cast, which gives TNT 899 an even more sporting attitude for guaranteed fun, which is the avowed aim of the Pesaro make. The strong point of this bike is the excellent parts quality. Front suspension : on the front wheel a Marzocchi 50 mm upside-down fork, a guarantee of stability, with Brembo brake calipers and wave disc 320 mm. At the rear there is a wave disc 240 mm.
TNT 899 boasts truly unique accessories: carbon muffler, front and rear carbon mudguards, carbon belly pans, carbon chain casing, adjustable brake/clutch levers in ergal, handlebar ends in ergal, dry clutch kit, frame sliders, racing tank filler, carbon single-seat tail, motorbike covers and semi-rigid panniers.
Besides the new colour, TNT 899 is released also in white combined with red frame. TNT 899 will be available at Benelli Dealers starting from February 2013.
The TNT 899 stands out for its sporty elegance and slender lines, for the white colour combined with the flame-red frame and the many racing details.

The gear shift is precise, the clutch performs excellently and the braking system is a real racing feature.
