Transformers Among Us? Two 2007 Benelli TNT's W/0 Miles
Am I wrong, don't these bikes look like the were specifically designed for the Transformers movies? I'm not sure I'm a fan of the styling but I do like designs that aren't cookie cutter boring. The word that comes to mind is "subtle" or should I say the lack of any subtly. The styling on these bikes is as subtle as a punch in the mouth. Maybe a nice alternative if your local hang out is over run with Monsters though.
I guarantee you will see one of these bikes in a Sci Fi movie someday. Like me, I bet you haven't read up on what the TNT line includes. For the 2010 model year there are actually four models of TNT and they can be seen here. These two are a left over 2007 TNT and TNT Sport. From what I can tell they only differ is slight suspension and brake tweaks. Both house a version of Benelli's healthy three cylinder engine. A trip around the internets provided several reviews on the TNT. To sum them up: great motor, decent suspension and suspect electrics. Styling of course is in eye of the beholder.
Here is an overly dramatic look at the Cafe version of the TNT:
It looks much more plastic compared to the Tornado Tre.
If you are one to think outside the box a bit and like what you see, these two bikes are being offered at roughly $5,000 off list. They are both dealer bikes so I would guess with some haggling you might even do better. They are offering free shipping as a nice little bonus. You can check out the and the .
