Sei / 2 – 2007 Benelli TNT 1130 Sport

Even one of the oldest motorbike manufacturers could benefit from an infusion of new capital, and the late 2000’s brought new models with support from the Qianjiang group.  Today’s Tré has been thoughtfully updated and shows like a brand new machine.

2007 Benelli TnT 1130 Sport for sale on eBay

Pesaro engineered a whopping triple, DOHC with each cylinder displacing over 375 cc’s and totaling 130 hp.  A chassis of oversized tubes mate to cast sideplates, with 50mm Marzocchi forks and an Öhlins remote reservoir shock on the fabricated swingarm.  The binnacle fairing reviewed as surprisingly effective, as did the “just right” compromise handlebars.  Pillion accommodation was purely theoretical, similar to the noise attenuation provided by the single underseat muffler.

Clearly the work of a super-fan, this TnT has had every factory foible corrected, exhaust customized, brakes renewed, controls Rizomized, fairings carbonated, and wheels overdone by Rotobox.  Pretty much show winning condition even with 7,000 and change miles.  Comments from the eBay auction –

I believe this to be the nicest, cleanest, most sorted TNT in the US.  SO many upgrades. First and foremost Z25 gear and related were replaced 2 years ago (about 1600 miles). New clutch seals, springs. Rebuilt water pump. Samco hoses. ND 12pt fuel injectors, new stepper motor. Spark Plugs. DNA air filter. Custom downpipe by Maniac Motors. MIVV exhaust. Exhaust ceramic coated. Bike was tuned on dyno by Reparto Veloce in Chandler AZ and has two custom maps installed (TNT button).

New Hydraulic clutch. New Brembo clutch and brake master cylinders. AEM titanium reservoirs. Matris steering stabilizer. New Ohlins rear shock. Rizoma grips. Oberon mirrors.

Brand new custom made Rotobox carbon fiber wheels with new Pirellis. DID chain, Rotobox sprockets. New Brembo rotors front and back with EBC brake pads.

Custom carbon as noted, including painted panels and clear coat by Danny Balley. Rizoma rear sequential turn signals. Includes original tires/wheels, additional body panels, seats. Four boxes of spare and original parts. All keys and service manual. More pics available.

Benelli continued development after the signature 900 Sei and has turned a corner from liter-plus muscle with the largest displacement in their current line-up being 800 cc.  But Qianjiang and now Geely Holdings have kept design and production capabilities in Pesaro, a bit of a boutique brand for the volume manufacturer of both bikes and cars.  This owner has prepared a one-of-a-kind TnT, and the bigger factory’s backing provides some extra security for the next owner.
