To celebrate their 100th year, Benelli have launched two special edition machines – the TNT 899 Century Racer and TNT 1130 Century Racer. Both are fitted with Benelli’s three-cylinder engines, producing 120 horsepower at 9,500rpm in the case of the TNT 899 and 129 horsepower at 8,500rpm for the TNT 1130.

Both bikes are fitted with a six-speed gearbox, high-spec suspension components from Marzocchi and Sachs, Brembo brakes with radial-mount callipers and special touches like Alcantara seats and a special paint job inspired by Renzo Pasolini’s Benelli racebikes of the 1960s.

The two refurbished Century Racer TNT have not only the goal of celebrating the centenary of the mark in Pesaro, but to raise the crest of all coastal sport.

For this reason the changes introduced by the technicians of Pesaro are numerous: you start with a ‘thorough review of the allowances of the frame lattice complemented by elements of aluminum alloy castings, with a clear head in order to get more sporty and more fun.

The component has not escaped the renewal here, then, the new Marzocchi fork up-side down with stems of 50 mm in diameter, guaranteeing maximum stability and efficiency throughout the travel of 120 mm of front suspension, all complemented by Brembo radial calipers and Braking wave discs of 320 mm in diameter (240 mm at the rear).
