Bit­ten by the Benelli bug

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

It was great to see the Benelli get such a pos­i­tive re­view (MCN, Au­gust 10). I know only too well how this brand can get un­der the skin, I was ‘in­fected’ eight years ago now and have ended up with a trio of these Ital­ian triples. An in­fec­tious dis­ease in­deed. Start­ing with the clas­sic 900 Tor­nado, fol­lowed by the 1130 Café Racer and now an 1130 Tor­nado, this trio of rare and beau­ti­ful bikes was bought over a pe­riod of years for less than one new Fire­blade... who needs PCP? So you can keep your butt ugly MT-10 and de­riv­a­tive Tri­umph/du­cati ret­ros, ta very much. I will just keep on en­joy­ing my dis­tinc­tive, char­ac­ter­ful and quirky ma­chines for years to come.
