Try Adrian Flux insurance. It's listed as Benelli TnT 125 Naked Tornado. That's who I went with.
Definitely worth getting one now than later plus if you can get it at a lower price, even better. Once these bikes get known better (ie magazines / adverts) then the prices are likely to go up.
I´d like to ask you guys for any experience with the bike, as I´m getting one as well.. Already paid deposit - It´s on the way. I should have it within days (white one)..
I´m from Czech Republic - price is 62´990 CZK (2´120 GBP according to google today).
I´ve also done some research and found that the 135 comes with some slight differences, from which I found the biggest is the tyres. While asians get sweet Metzelers, we get some Chineese nonames (why?). I´m a little worried, as the bike is actually mainly for my wife - her first one after several years of absence due to pregnance and following maternity leave - right after her pass for licence extension
Any advice on immediate tyre change?
P.S. I had a test ride with a bike for about 15mins.. However, it was brand new (had 6km on the clock) and the rear brake seemed to be a little loose.. The guy told me it will settle.. Any advice on that? It should be with CBS, but I didn´t dare to try that hard, as I didn´t want to buy the destroyed one
Ok, so... with any brand new bike just take it steady for the first 600 miles (running in period).
I've only covered 60+ miles since receiving my bake a few days ago.
As for the 135, forget seeing them in the UK for now due to regs in this country. I've already researched the hell out of the bike prior to it coming in the the UK.
With tyres, (the ones on the bike) just run them in to get used to the bike then once they need changing, maybe try Pirellis.
Again, when the bikes are brand new, the tyres have some sort of coating on them to keep the shine on them so it will need scrubbing in.
I'm avoiding trying to use the bike in the wet so can't say what the current tyres are like on wet.
It's a great bike to get back on the roads again and I try to ride every chance I get (weather permitting).
Just remember to take it easy and enjoy the ride - it'll give on-lookers a chance to admire the TnT.
ps - the CBS brakes work fine but needs getting used to as with all 2017 onwards (125cc up) due to Euro4 regs.
