Best Of The Best 2006: Italian Supermodel

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2006

In addition to its racing pedigree, the Benelli TNT Sport ($16,700) possesses the exotic good looks that are characteristic of bikes by this Italian manufacturer. The sleek, wedged bodywork features a unique marriage of steel tube trellis framework with an aluminum midsection that holds the fuel-injected 1,130 cc inline triple motor. Harboring 135 hp in a responsive, smooth-handling chassis, the TNT (Tornado Naked Tre) Sport is capable of controlled blasts of power accompanied by bellicose exhaust notes issuing from its sinuous under-seat pipe. The Benelli TNT Sport is an orgy of alloys and audacious design that matches its alluring aesthetics with equally seductive performance.
