You want more? Benelli thoughtfully designed the motor with longevity in mind. Not only does it have a sight glass to check the oil level, but there’s a proper paper oil filter, too. And, speaking of oil, it didn’t leak at all, not a drop. I didn’t quite get to test the claimed 117mph top speed but, suffice to say, hurtling down country lanes on the 650 was as exhilarating a ride as I’ve ever had on a classic motorcycle of any capacity or power.
