Benelli and Honda exchanged flattery in the 1970’s, which began with Benelli creating a six cylinder look-alike of Honda’s CB500 Four in 1972.  Their flagship Sei began as a 750 and progressed to a 900 by 1979.  Honda returned the compliment in 1978 with their CBX.  Restored by a previous owner, this Sei is a magnificent labor of love.

Benelli made a careful study of the air-cooled Honda and made a few changes – the gear-driven alternator, located behind the cylinders, keeps the engine’s width manageable.  With three Dell’Orto carburettors, 76 hp was almost effortless and the Sei created usable torque from 2,000 rpm.  The chassis is a hefty downtube with right-side-up Marzocchi forks, and twin Sebac shocks.  Dual front disks make up for the tried-and-true rear drum.  Styling is dominated by the six-way calliope, with a few angular details on the instrument cluster, side covers, and cylinders.

A bottle of chrome polish might be on the new owner’s shopping list, since the Sei is all metal, with not even the side covers executed in plastic.  On display since shortly after the restoration was completed, it shows almost as a new machine, with sparkling finishes and new rubber parts, like the carburetor boots.  The owner shares these notes:

In general, I do believe super rare Italian motorcycle of the 1970s and 1980s are the future Ferrari of motorcycle collecting. We all know what has happened to Ferrari.

The 1976 Benelli SEI 750 six-cylinder is another one of those iconic Italian motorcycles. It was the first six-cylinder production motorcycle, and, yes, those six exhaust pipes not only sound great but look phenomenal. The bike was restored by a gentleman that spent what looks like half a lifetime to get it to such perfection. This bike starts and runs as it should and I don’t personally know of one important criticism that I could make on the bike for show or riding.

The Benelli winding through the gears sound like a Gran Prix rarer and the slick handling is something has to be experienced. These six cylinder Benelli bikes have a long way to go in terms of collector appreciation. When you buy a first series Benelli six cylinder you will find a crowd wherever you stop.

Then just wind up through the gears and it seems that the roar of those six exhaust pipes can be heard a mile away.

Check out the pictures of this Benelli it has to be one of the best, if not The Best, restored 1976 Benelli SEI 750’s ever!

All my bikes are kept in climate controlled storage and on trickle chargers when not in use so they are always ready to take a day’s ride at a moment’s notice.


Check out the pictures and be a little amazed – you are seeing the best!

As the 1970’s opened, industrialist Alejandro DeTomaso had high hopes for his new acquisition, and funded the development of the magnetic Sei.  The big-band sound of six individual 125cc cylinders is more like a fleet of motorcycles than just one.  Never destined to be in every garage, the bright light in the Benelli showroom was reflecting off the Sei’s six chrome mufflers.  The owner has curated and preserved this example to a high standard, and not insignificantly, kept it ready to ride.

Almost Ostentatious – 1979 Benelli 250 Quattro

When most manufacturers were making 250cc singles do, Benelli – with help from new leader DeTomaso – showed their engineering chops with a super-smooth 250 inline four.  This rarity comes to you from northern Italy and shows nicely with just under 1,900 miles.

1979 Benelli 250 Quattro for sale on eBay

To accompany their newer and bigger offerings to the showroom, Benelli engineers shrunk the SOHC engine so that cylinder bores are just under two inches, but still makes 27hp ( at 10,500 rpm ! ) with 26mm carburetors.  Chassis and suspension are standard for the day, though the tank/seat fairing is quite innovative with integral tank pad and gauges built into the folded-looking tank.   Kick-starting is all that was required, and a single 260mm disk suffices with a drum rear.  The chrome and alloy interplay is completed by the 2-into-1 exhaust and alloy wheels.

Photographed on the road with a license plate, this 250/4 seems a very good survivor, with paint and chrome that fib about the many years since new.  The comments offer worldwide delivery and show their last crating job as evidence.  Notes are spare in the eBay auction:

Excellent unrestored bike, ultra rare first series, frame number 10008. 2 owners. 100% original. Sold by Benelli Bari dealer in southern Italy. 

Obviously for a Benelli fan or collector, a 250 Quattro would be a special purchase.  This one could be ridden to sample a cavallo di battaglia from the late 70’s, without worry of damaging a true museum piece.  We saw such an example go over $15K at Mecum in January, this one is about ninety percent of the value at slightly over half the ask.

Rare Roadster: 2007 Benelli TnT 1130 for Sale

The original Benelli triple in the Tornado displaced 898cc and couldn’t really compete head-to-head against the other comparable superbikes of the era. It was a good bike, with sound engineering and a quirky layout that located the radiators and fans in the tail of the bike. But it wasn’t quite good enough and, when WSBK rules changed to make the triple format obsolete, it made the bike and its chosen displacement sort of pointless. So Benelli abandoned the 898cc displacement and, bumped to 1130cc in later Tornadoes and the naked TnT seen here, the motor made prodigious torque figures of 86lb-ft to go with the less wildly impressive horsepower figures.

The punched-out mill made the bike flexible in town and a hooligan bike extraordinaire. The radiators were moved to a slightly-less-weird location on either side of the tank, with sculpted vanes to blend them into the rest of the bulky fuel tank/airbox assembly. The headlight reflector is a kaleidoscopic affair, often described as “alien” or “menacing” and still manages to look very striking, although replacing it could prove to be a real headache in the event of a crash.

The frame followed the superbike’s design, with a curving tubular structure that’s glued to the cast-aluminum side-plates using industrial adhesives, so shouldn’t be too surprising that the handling got good reviews, considering the TnT generally had non-adjustable forks. Some special editions got more sophisticated gear, and this looks like it might actually be a TnT Sport Evo, which had updated Brembo stoppers, compared to more “ordinary” Benellis, as well as adjustable suspension up front.

These used to show up on eBay with extremely low miles and prices, looking very much like leftover dealer stock. I kept wishing I’d been able to buy one of these basically new, but with huge discounts. I’d guess a TnT would be a great candidate for some modern upgrades. Maybe a front-end swap from a later sportbike and a more modern digital dash to replace the slightly bargain-looking original gauges?

From the original eBay listing: 2007 Benelli TnT 1130 for Sale

If you found this listing you are knowing what you are looking for.

A truly unique and amazing naked Italian bike even rarer than Ducati’s Streetfighter. Torque and handling are in a class of it’s own.

Ultra-low mileage and a number of tasteful upgrades:

  • Full LED headlights (high and low beams) and turn signals
  • LSL superbike handlebar
  • Fully adjustable folding levers
  • Bar end mirrors
  • Custom upholstered seat with integrated gel pad (super comfortable)
  • CF front and rear fender (clear coated and polished to prevent the common yellowing)
  • Integrated taillights
  • GPR exhaust
  • TnT aluminum fender eliminator
  • Custom chainguard
  • GSG Mototechnik crashpads
  • Upgraded battery cables

Bike is in AS NEW condition, serviced less than 500 miles ago (oil, filter, plugs, valve adjustment, etc.). New tires with approx. 300 miles.

This is an outstanding unique rare bike and head-turner anywhere you go!

Buyer will also receive some spare parts two radiators (very hard to source), flyscreen, transmission gasket, set of new stick coils, etc.).

Considering the $6,500 starting bid that so far has no takers, this might be a great chance to pick up a bargain Italian exotic! Benelli’s inline triple-powered bikes seem to have been largely reliable, although some examples were afflicted with the usual Italian electrics, and fueling was much less sophisticated than you generally find on today’s motorcycles. Parts can be an issue if you live in the US, but it shouldn’t be too hard to keep one running, since they’re otherwise pretty conventional machines. The bigger issue would be bodywork and aftermarket bits, something that’s at least partly sorted here since the bike includes some nice aftermarket bits, including an exhaust and fender eliminator, along with a few replacement bits, just in case.

Across the Pond: 2003 Benelli Tre Novacento for Sale

It’s always interesting to see the disparity in terms of bike values, depending on market. It seems like you can make a decent living, finding bikes where they are cheap and plentiful, and shipping them to places where they ain’t… In Japan, the 250cc two-stroke sportbikes of the 80s and 90s are relatively cheap, although they obviously have an enthusiastic following. Here in the USA? They were never officially imported and, until certain models recently cleared the 25-year import restrictions, were extremely rare. I haven’t looked recently, but many classic Laverda models are much less expensive in Europe than here as well. Looking at the £3,650.00 asking price for this very cool Benelli Tre Novocentro, it looks like the same holds true for these stylish and quirky machines, since that works out to just $4,623.00 in US currency.

Obviously, the Tornado has rarity going for it, along with distinctive Italian looks. But it’s also a pretty functional motorcycle, with a solid 140hp from the 898cc three cylinder, good handling, and quality braking and suspension components. A six-speed cassette-style gearbox is probably overkill on a roadbike, but the slipper-clutch with an adjustable engagement point is pretty cool, as is the frame that’s glued-together using aerospace-grade adhesives. It lacks the radial-mount calipers and eyeball-flattening power of today’s fastest bikes, but these have more than enough performance to keep even expert riders entertained.

I’d take great pains to stay in front of other riders, to keep them confused looking up the tail of the Tre to see bright yellow cooling fans under the tail. With the underseat-mounted radiator, the engine could be mounted further forward in the frame for better handling. Parts are likely the biggest issue for any Benelli, although there were some minor issues with reliability, as you’d expect from a brand-new, low-production, high-performance Italian sportbike. Nothing that can’t be handled by the patient owner, but still a headache if you’re not prepared.

So what happened? Why wasn’t the revitalized brand a bigger success? Well partly it was the unknown of a newly-reborn brand flogging an expensive, top-shelf sportbike. But the bike’s original 900cc displacement was meant to allow it to be homologated for racing, and the bike was a victim of changing World Superbike rules that basically made 900cc triples obsolete, since the bike would have been uncompetitive in it’s original form. Later machines bumped displacement to over 1100cc, but that just made it a more effective roadbike as it was too large to race.

From the original UK eBay listing: 2003 Benelli Tornado Tre Novocentro for Sale

Here we have my truly iconic Benelli Tornado TRE 900                                                                       

These bikes made quite a stir back in the day – for some good and some bad unfortunately but now when you have one with all the modified bits dealt with and niggles ironed out they truly are an absolute brilliant thing to be out on when the sun comes out… My example is as expected – equipped with what was back then some top notch equipment and even by today’s standards it’s still quite trick 

The engine has had the cam chain replaced (June 2018) before the manuals suggest as this is very important – also the valve clearances done then too as these engines naturally sound tappety. The infamous recall mods – Z25 gear on the alternator shaft and clutch bolt all inspected and are fine. The suspension and brakes are from the best makes along with a titanium Arrow exhaust system – all original equipment…

The bike is in what’s arguably the best colour scheme of silver and green with black accents here/there and of course the rear yellow under seat fans. These bikes are really something else and the triple cylinder 900cc engine loves to be used – the sound up the revs is amazing and just puts a smile on my face EVERY TIME I take it out. The bike is 100% mechanically spot on – does everything expected of it and needs nothing doing. Please do all your research required online as these bikes were all made 2003-2004 so don’t be fooled by the late registered bikes for sale as they are all the same! 

Factory fitted alarm/immobiliser.

MOT until sept 2019 – only 16k miles…

I have documents – manuals – keys – history – receipts – V5 

The honesty part… The bike has a small crack along side the r/h front indicator as per pics due to being pushed into something in my garage and the tail unit has some mark where an item fell onto it… Neither are of any issue but want to point out faults also… My cars/bikes are only being sold due to an impending house move this summer and I need to downsize somewhat so please only genuine interest is wanted as were always busy.

Thanks for looking.

As stated before, the price is shockingly reasonable for a bit of functional Italian exotica, although maybe that’s considered expensive on the other side of the Atlantic? The 16,000 miles aren’t all that low, but the bike appears to have had considerate ownership by a knowledgeable enthusiast, and my understanding is that these Benellis are pretty robust mechanically, once you get your head around some of the unconventional engineering and idiosyncrasies. Parts availability would be the big unknown here, and I’d expect OEM bodywork to be nearly unobtainable. If there are any owners out there, we’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments!

Green Flash – 2005 Benelli Tornado Tré

Great to see two Benelli’s in a month, but two have popped up this holiday week !  This is an earlier example of the rear-radiator sportbike, with just dealer miles despite its litigious past.

2005 Benelli Tornado Tré for sale on eBay

After difficulties in the late 1980’s, the revitalized Benelli showed the Tornado in 1999, and developed the 898cc triple with a reputed 140 hp.  In concert with a desire to have the engine as far forward as possible, the radiator was located amidships with underseat fans vacuuming hot air out the back.  The tube and casting chassis is Triumph-esque, with premium Brembo and Öhlins components.

The Tré has traveled but unfortunately not much under power, between storage units mostly.  It appears as new except for a couple of very light marks.  The owner has dealt with a couple of storage-related issues, and the ECU re-flash hopefully exorcised the lean-running midrange flat spot.  From the eBay auction:

This example has now 198 original miles. I think it had 135 miles when I first got it about 6 years ago.  I found it in North Carolina.  It was said to come out of a storage locker. I had to chase down the original owner and pay off the bank loan to acquire title. That took a while.

I found a former Benelli technical rep who has a small shop near Pittsburgh. He helped me bring it back to life, fixed a few things and put in the current ECU map, etc.  That was when  first got it and Its been part of my collection ever since. More recently, I had to replace the fuel pump which went south from sitting. Back to Pittsburgh it went.

Its now again a turn key  bike! You wont find a cleaner nicer example but it does have a couple small hairline scratches in the lower left green panel. See pix. That’s about it. The rest is as new.

The offbeat design led to an 1130cc superbike and naked, but after a 2005 merger with Qjian Jiang the company’s focus has shifted to smaller singles and scooters, though a 600cc four is still on their North American menu.  Good reviews for the Tré were tempered by ECU mapping and alternator drive difficulties, but once sorted it handles great and the 900 triple is a joy.  The asking price concentrates on all the good things about rarity, and maybe there is a buyer with the support network in place.  In the meantime, the rest of us can enjoy a very Italian sport from 2005 with just 200 miles…

Explosive – 2007 Benelli Tornado TNT1130 Sport

Following their 2002 Tornado Tré sportbike, Benelli’s successful TNT all-around bike was the re-vamped company’s foray into the liter-plus-class.  Testing the roiling naked-sport waters, Benelli put many advancements and quality components into the Tornado Naked Tré 1130.  RSBFS regular Iconic Motorbikes offers this 2007 TNT and though it’s not perfect, its ability to draw a crowd sets it apart.

2007 Benelli TNT1130 Sport for sale on eBay

 

The TNT Sport expanded on the company’s 4-valve triple, with a fairly extreme 130 hp and 87 ft.-lbs. torque.   The hybrid chassis combines steel trellis with cast head and connectors, with Marzocchi 50mm forks and dual-adjustable monoshock.  A “power control” button on the dash reduces rear-wheel hp for rain events or cold tires.  Side rads and integral turn signals are part of the red and black jagged-flow design.  Brakes are Brembo Serie Oro, and their black wheels complete the picture.

 

With just over 9,000 miles, this Sport has been in a low-speed mishap, but except for a few scrapes and a cracked fairing boss, it shows quite well.  Much too rare to be festooned with farkles.  From the eBay auction:

Horsepower is right around 135 HP and a torque curve that’s sure to loft the front wheel in the air.

Funky side mounted radiators, a single high center exhaust, futuristic “alien like” styling and nothing short of brilliant engineering will most certainly get you second looks wherever you go!  This was one of Benelli’s last true innovative bikes that they released.

When released the magazines and reviews all agreed that it had amazing handling, fantastic power and one of the best naked bikes on the market.

As far as this particular bike, pretty much stock with a carbon fiber front fender, CRG levers and just the OEM awesome styling such as the HUGE diameter front forks, the swept design hollow spoke wheels, the two tone seat and a taillight that wraps around the exhaust….SO COOL!

 

Reviews praised the TNT’s up-to-date handling, but a few electrical gremlins played havoc with Bennelli’s reputation.  Even Cycle World’s long-term test article was a bit of hangar queen, claiming only 1,300 miles over their second six months.  Though still based in Italy, Benelli now has an Asian partner and has been concentrating on that market.  But for a fan of the brand or just off-beat super nakeds, the TNT1130 has a lot to recommend it.

Oh Sei – 1983 Benelli 900 Sei

New CEO DeTomaso ( yes that one ) led the historic Benelli company to higher performance machines and the 750 Sei ( Six ) in 1973.  Benelli increased bore and stroke on the Sei to displace 906cc for the 1979 model year.  Simultaneously outrageous, exotic, handcrafted, and occasionally disappointing, the Sei was Benelli’s flagship until they merged with Moto-Guzzi in 1988.

1983 Benelli 900 Sei for sale on eBay

Looking for all the world like a SOHC Honda engine from the era, the Sei had some innovations, like placing the alternator behind the cylinders ( which were wide enough already ).  80 hp were routed through a 5-speed and double-row final drive chain, speaking to the torque that was available at just above tickover speed.  Good as they are, the Brembo brakes are hopelessly outgunned by the power and mid-500 lbs. weight.  In spite, the Sei got high marks for handling, steady in a corner when the competition was wallowing.

Looking excellent in its late -70’s flowing bodywork and controls, this Sei has just over 11,000 miles.  A machine of this age will have an afternoon’s worth of tales, but the owner stays on message in the eBay auction:

A meticulously maintained 1983 Benelli 900 SEI with extremely low miles at 11300.
This bike is almost perfect, serviced and runs and drives perfectly.
They don’t come up often so here is an opportunity to get one.
Bid with absolute confidence.
Don’t waste my time with silly questions, low offers and if you don’t have money.
Viewing is welcomed before you buy.

Already in boutique territory, the Benelli pricing and complication of three carburetors made the Sei a rarity.  Performance was a few bullets down on the mission statement, under pleasing the crowd, honoring the Benelli name, and showing off the factory’s skills.  Further down was a reliable ride, and the Sei got gigged repeatedly on electrical issues.  But the sound !  More 911 than motorbike, especially with the six-into-six.  For a collector with a European interest, this is just the bike for the end of the row…

Oh Sei can you see? Two Benelli SEI 750s on eBay

In striving to bring readers the best online classifieds every day, RSBFS writers are besieged by drought and deluge. Some rare machines might not be seen for months or more, only to arrive in pairs. Such is the case with today’s 12-cylinder post; not one but two awesome Benelli 750cc six cylinder examples for your enjoyment. Widely known (pun intended) as the World’s First production six cylinder motorcycle (despite the later attempts by Honda, Kawasaki and BMW), the Benelli was a technical and stylistic tour de force. Engineered by none other than Alejandro de Tomaso of Pantara fame (the sports car, not the band), the Sei persisted for more than 15 years until the ultimate merger of Benelli into Moto Guzzi. Interested in one of these ground-breaking machines? Read on!


1977 Benelli Sei 750 for sale on eBay

The first of the 750 Benelli Sei models were introduced way back in 1973. While Honda was busy wowing the world with their four-cylinder technological might, de Tomaso sought to one-up the Japanese by tacking two extra cylinders onto a copy of the Honda power plant. With that move, a 500cc four became a 750cc six – and history was made.

To keep the already portly engine block from becoming too unwieldy, de Tomaso re-positioned the alternator from the end of the crank (where it sat on the Honda) to behind the cylinders. This move not only narrowed the ultimate width of the engine, it also started a trend to centralize mass within the frame; a discipline followed to this day. Total power was not tremendous – rated HP was a mere 72 ponies.

From the seller:
Up for sale is this extremely rare 1977 Benelli 750 “Sei” (Italian for “six” – not “sex”!), one of the three vintage six cylinder bikes ever made. It is an un-restored original in excellent condition, With a clear title and only 10,463 miles, (16.742 Kilometers) this is one of the nicest survivors of only a thousand 750 Seis imported into the US from 1974 to 1978. And it’s a “rider,” not a trailer queen: driven once every month or two, and only in clear weather – has never been in the rain, nor been dropped or scraped. Only cosmetic flaw is a tiny chip on the tank.

In the year 1977 only 283, 750 Sei were made, making this year a very rare one. Breaks got a tune up and work just as well as a modern bike, all switches and gauges work as they should, gas tank received a coat treatment to prevent rust, it has new air filters, recently got carburetor tune up. This bike only has a small dent on one of the exhausts and very small paint chips on the gas tank(please see pictures).

I will include some spare parts, a copy of the owners manual, a copy of the shop manual, as well as a copy of the spare parts manual. Some magazines in which the bike was featured at that time. Previous owner kept this motorcycle in a museum. This motorcycle is only missing the tool kit and the rubber strap that holds the gas tank.

This particular 1977 example appears to be in great shape. Benellis of this era were not exactly known for robust reliability, so it is actually a huge benefit that this is a regular rider. Nothing ages a motorcycle like stagnation, and this one has thus far avoided the neglect that many of these complex machines have suffered. Check it out here, but be sure to bring lots of Lire – the starting bid for this one is a cool $19,000.


1979 Benelli Sei 750 with ZERO miles for sale on eBay

The Benelli Sei is as much an exercise in excess as anything you are likely to see. The frame is dominated by the huge engine and offset by six exhaust pipes. Nothing on this bike is subtle, nor was it meant to be. The visceral elements of the Sei were created by famed Carrozzeria Ghia (think of the VW Karmann Ghia or the Ferrari 212), the bodywork as striking as the mechanical elements. Benelli – under the guidance of de Tomaso – was going to make a statement: the Italians were the equal of Japanese technology and held all the cards in the styling department. At the end of the day, they surely succeeded.

Today the Sei continues to be more distinctive than anything short of a one-off, overwrought custom cruiser. To consider that this was a production model for sale publicly throughout the 1970s and 1980s is unbelievable. It is also pretty rare. Sei models were considerably more expensive than mass-produced counterparts; the dealer network was smaller than Japanese, German, or even other Italian marques.

From the seller:
1979 Benelli 750 Sei. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a zero mile… yes , zero mile motorcycle. Here is the story as I was told when I bought it. This motorcycle was purchased new by a Florida collector, who at the time of his death (about 2 years ago) was 82 years old. The previous owner had amassed over 300 motorcycles, many of them being rare, high ticket items.

His widow sold 70% of his collection to a German collector, as a package deal. I managed to get a few of his other bikes, two of which were Benelli 750 Sei zero mile bikes. This collector, as described by his brother, was extremely eccentric, and not particular about the absolute care, and method of storage for his motorcycles. Consequently, although a zero miler, it does display various imperfections which are visible in the photos. Please feel free to contact me and we can do a video walk through closeup of the specifics. Included with the sale are, the original toolkit and manual.

1977 is listed as the final production year of the 750 model; the 900cc replacement version of the Sei entered as a 1978 model. However it is not uncommon for model year data to be based on the sale or registration of a given bike. It is also not uncommon for smaller European brands to have somewhat erratic record keeping, making exact determinations difficult. Regardless, this claimed ZERO mile example is certainly an albino of the Unicorn world. Low mileage specimens of low-volume production models will always perk the interest of collectors. There are lots of questions on this one – including the overall condition – but the seller seems open to answering them. Check it out here, and once again bring lots of Lire to the party: this one is $24,000 in a Buy It Now format, with the seller open to offers.


At the end of the 1980s Benelli was absorbed by Moto Guzzi. The name and rights were later sold to a Chinese company, and Benelli enjoyed a brief US revival in the early 2000s with the three cylinder Tornado and TNT models. Today Benelli – while still officially headquartered in Pesaro, Italy – is a Chinese company that partners with with DSK Group of India, producing smaller and middleweight motorcycles and scooters for those markets. There are Benelli imports into the US, but only officially through a third party (SSR Motorsports). The glory days of Benelli being a power house of style and technology are largely over. Better collect an old school example when you still can. Good Luck!!
