Benelli Tornado 302 2016

The Benelli Tornado is back. A name sufficient to stir up lust. Remember the turn of the century when prestigious sports cars emerged in search of glory (MV-Agusta F4 750, Mondial Piega, Boxer VB1, Honda VTR SP-1, Bimota SB8K, …). The Tornado was from this frenzy. First in three cylinders 900, then roughly 1130. Admittedly, it could not compete with the references of the time, but its engine, its design and its technical solutions left no one indifferent..

It is therefore with enthusiasm that we welcome the return of a sports car to the manufacturer of Pesaro. Especially with this name that smells of powder. From a distance, the novelty aspect is undeniable. Up close too, and it is at this moment that we understand that this Benelli no longer has much Italian. Neither flamboyant! The rebirth of the Tornado takes place via a twin-cylinder 300 cc. With 35 horses, the memory falls from its pedestal.
This machine should therefore not be seen as the offspring of the 900/1130 Tornado but as a Sino-strategic foray into the medium-displacement sector with a sporting aspect. The YZF-R3, RC 390 and Ninja 300 clan; little valued and active with us but a mass market in emerging countries.

This 302 Tornado is not bad. Even rewarding with its inverted fork, its slender silhouette, its red frame and its petal discs. It makes us easily forget that it shares the mechanics of the BN 302 roadster. The sporting illusion may still appeal to many young people allowed, the power of its twin being clearly below the requirements of the A2. Built around a steel trellis frame and a swing arm different from the BN, the little Tornado is equipped with 2 front brake discs clamped by 4 piston axially mounted calipers, 1 240 mm disc at the rear, slim 110 and 150mm wheels, a 14-liter fuel tank, and optional ABS. With 180 kilos dry and a handful of horses less than its rivals, this Tornado will make you want to play but will have a hard time being vindictive to them..
A concept to discover, keeping in mind that the Benelli are now Chinese motorcycles where only the badge keeps the colors of the brand.
