New colours and even more exclusive components for the TNT Sport, inspired by the super bike motorcycles for the most enthusiastic sports riders.

For stability and manageability in every road condition and for more precise steering, the Benelli technicians have worked long and hard on the suspension setting: up front, the Marzocchi fork with reversed, 50 mm rods, adjustable in spring compression, extension and preload.

The settings provide a more progressive action of the shock absorber to guarantee safer, more stable riding when changing directions, both on the road and on the track.

The winning point of the new TNT Sport is the perfect balance during braking: on this version the powerful Brembo system mounts the double floating disk, 320 mm, at the front with 4 piston radial calliper to always provide an optimal response during braking.

Another innovation, unique in the universal motorcycling panorama, which we find on all of the TNT 2005 year models is the possibility of modifying motor functions by simply pressing a lighted button on the dash support.

The engine control unit can be switched between free power and controlled power for better control of the motorcycle in poor traction conditions. This also guarantees a decrease in fuel consumption of 10-20% depending on driving style and on the road.

The free power configuration makes it possible to fully enjoy the torque features and engine power, while the controlled power configuration makes it possible to enjoy using the bike easily in the city, in two, even on asphalt with poor traction without stress.

The TNT Sport offers the perfect combination of manoeuvrability and brilliant engine performance with carefully designed details and prestige components to satisfy even the most demanding biker

Review

One of the best ever incarnations of the naked motorcycle theme. A massively powerful motor allied to a funky design and capable chassis makes the Benelli TNT effortlessly good at wheelies and general A-road hooning.The Benelli TNT is probably the most ‘out there’ motorcycle money can buy.

Despite its lack of adjustment the Benelli TNT handles extremely well. It’s a composed, agile and well balanced motorcycle, with real flickability thanks to those wide bars. The Benelli TNT has very poor steering lock, which makes turning the motorcycle around in Britain’s narrow streets a pain. Great Brembo brakes are very reassuring, but high pegs will cramp your legs on longer rides if you’re an above average height biker.

The Benelli TNT's 1130cc in-line DOHC triple motor oozes torque, slamming some 86ft lb through its rear tyre, making overtakes on this motorcycle a cinch in any gear and it’ll pull cleanly from as little as 2000rpm in top. Allied to a smooth gearbox you can wring some 118 rear wheel bhp from the Benelli TNT – if you can hang on. From 2005 the Benelli TNT motorcycle range was fitted with switchable engine mapping.

Reliability on this motorcycle has occasionally been an issue, with electrics shouldering most of the blame, but new Benelli TNT motorcycles come with a two-year warranty and breakdown assistance.

Benelli can supply a suspension adjustment kit, soft luggage, carbon fibre wheels and hugger and a bespoke cover for the TNT should you so wish.
