These Benelli Tornado Tre machines have a unique look and feel that is unlike any other exotic. It is a strange beast in some ways, yet the flaws and foibles seem to ingrain the bike with a character that makes it stand out from the crowd. Yes, it is a triple. Yes, the radiator is mounted behind the engine and trans. Yes, this is the model with the funky turbine style radiator fans in the tail. Yes, this is the company that is no longer in business (and was last owned by a Chinese consortium). While this is not the more collectible LE model, this bike looks to be in outstanding condition and available from the original owner. That is what you want when you are considering a marque or model that has limited parts availability. Low miles and obvious care make this a great example of the breed. Bidding starts at $6k – not too high to open considering the condition. Let’s see where it goes!
