Well thanks to you guys and gals i've bought and picked up my Benelli TnT today :bow: . Had my first blast of 50 miles through the back roads home :ele: What a bike, R6, 955i, Duke monster, forgotten them all, only 1 bike for me now. :clap:

Anyone out there wondering wether to go from a Benelli or not, go for it. The most laughs you can have with your clotyhes on :rolling: the torque from low down and that howl as the valve opens. Perfect.

Would like to say more, but the sun is out and i feel the need to clock some more miles up with a mile wide grin :D

Cheers all, happy riding

Congratulations!

:p

Congratulations on you new baby Johnsy, what model have you got?

You may sometime in the ownership of your Nelli experience the odd niggle (and hopefully just a niggle) but you will find the highs will certainly out weigh the lows.

I remember when I had mine (totalled last October!) I had a huge grin on my face that lasted for agesevery time I went out on her. Colintornado and I went to Goodwood last weekend and just following him evoked good memories (not because of his riding!:rolling:).

May you have many happy days mate!

I've bought a normal TnT, although the insurance company say it must be a cafe (nope), sport (nope), or a titanium :confused: the documents just say TnT, is that a titanium or are my insurance company out of date, one told me that it had to be a 2005 as they weren't made in 2004. :doh:

Don't you just love insurance companies :rolling:

Niggly problems i can cope with (not too many :bow: ), i had no glitch in the rev range, started when it was hot and the temp stayed at half until town when it crept up half a notch, no more. Although Norfolk town aren't as busy as some you lot might see (3 minutes from 1 side to other)

Any problems and i shall be screaming out for advice :soapbox:

Ta to everyone one here, an excellent site with excellent comments and feedback :bluesbros:

Johnsy,

Your insurance company must specialized in maritime insurance or something. The TNT was first produced on 2004 as, well, just plain TNT. The Titanium was a concept since then but (probably) went into production in 2006 (if at all, 'cause I haven't seen nor heard of one on the streets). The Sport and Cafe Racer started in 2006.

You guys should live in Greece, a paradise for insurance costs: "What displacement is your motorcycle, Sir?", "1130". "Thank you, that'll be 147 Euro for annual insurance coverage" (Third party only). Simple as that and cheap too.

the titanium actually came out late 2004 early 2005, reddog had 2 when I picked up my 05 bike in march (05) one was sold and the other is still there in the corner, it has a dry clutch titanium exhaust mag wheels etc etc I believe the cost back then was £15,500 otr :doh: ……………….there was also an early sport there ready for a lucky/unlucky customer. ;)
