2008 Benelli TNT 1130 Cafe Racer
The TNT CafÃ© Racer is the result of a perfect blend of stylistic solutions and exclusive, sophisticated technique which come together to fully satisfy the performance levels which today’s motorcycle riders demand.
The design idea used for the development of the CafÃ¨ 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 CafÃ© Racer even more exclusive in the world gamma of the Streetfighters.
An important innovation in the motor: as in all of the TNT model year 2005 versions, The CafÃ© Racer offers the possibility of modifying motor functions by simply pressing a lighted button on the dash support. The engine control unit can be switched between free power and controlled power for better control of the motorcycle in poor traction conditions. This also guarantees a decrease in fuel consumption of 10-20% depending on driving style and on the road.
The free power configuration makes it possible to fully enjoy the torque features and motor power, while the controlled power configuration makes it possible to enjoy using the bike easily in the city, even on asphalt with poor traction, either alone or with a passenger, without stress.
The exclusive technical aspects are also seen in the exceptional cycle: this version sports a powerful 50 mm fork completely adjustable in compression, extension and spring preload, with a hardened surface to improve the sliding qualities which contribute to making the road holding solid and precise.
The back shock absorber body is in Ergal – light and unique in the world panorama; it is completely adjustable in extension and spring preload to offer a good level of performance constancy and to make riding safe in all asphalt conditions.
The attention given to the quest for lightness and performance is confirmed by the use of Marchesini rims in forged and machined aluminium alloy and the Brembo braking system which mounts a 4 piston radial calliper and a 320 mm diameter double disk at the front.
