    Hi - New owner here

    Hi All

    I've just joined, as I'm due to recieve my Imperiale 400 on Thursday. I'm guessing I could be in the minority on here, but, I do like the look and feel of it. I've had a Royal Enfiedl Bullet, and a Mash 400 in the past. I also have a Hyosung ST7 and a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. Oh, and I'm based in the West Midlands, any other Benelli riders nearby?

    Welcome along.

    I'm originally from the west midlands, close to the NEC, oddly I also have a Hyosung, a GV650 I'm just in the middle of painting most of the plastic chrome

    The bikes obviously attract a certain type of rider :-) I do like my Hyosung, getting parts can be a bit drawn out, hopefully, no so much the case with Benelli

    Hi All, well, I decided, even though the HPS125 was a cracking little 125, it was just a little too cramped for me, so, I sold it, and bought a Benelli Imperiale 400, which arrived today ! Woohoo !! Gave a quick covering of corrosion blocker, give it some protection from the copious amounts of roadsalt here, and took it for a spin of about 40 miles, around some of my familiar roads, over to Halfpenny Green & back, not necessarily the shortest route !! Haha. Ensuring I don't go above 4000rpm, whilst I run it in, having said that it will happily sit at 55 just under 4000rpm, so, no great hardship. First impressions, I love it, reminded me of everything that was so good about my Bullet 350, and, nothing of anything that was bad. Gear changes are nice & smooth, decent pickup, handles the farm tracks, minor roads perfectly well, very comfortable. I think I've finally found the perfect stablemate to my other 2 bikes 👍 Now, I've just got to wash the mud assorted gunk off it !! Anyhow, here's some photos from today's little familiarisation run.
