Excellent 4 page article in MCN this week with some surprises from the factory. Evidentally we are getting a new tronado with a 1000cc V-6 in it. The design is actually in the picture so one of the engineering types may be able to shed some light on it. Evidentally 10 more models to come including an inline 600 to compete with the japanese brands.:clap:

If Benelli really wants to impress the motorcycle world, maybe that V6 should be either SuperCharged or maybe TwinTurboed.....otherwise its just not spectacular enough to catch everyones attention...:rolling:

Seriously....Benelli is really starting to catch my interest. I look forward to seeing what they come up with in the near future. Since I know the USA Importer, I think I need to help support the Brand and his effort to sell and stand behind the brand here in the states.
Im going to wait and see what Benelli comes out with in the near future rather that look at getting an MV and/or Ducati for my next bike. It looks to me like Benelli is becoming a great alternative for motorcyclists wanting something Exotic and Itallian.

Thanks for the information Mr. Rottin....:bow: :bow: :bow:

Unfortunately I have seen this thread and now after reading this article Im afraid Im going to have to make room in my living room for a new Benelli V6 when it comes out.

Luckily I have a year or two to break the news with the wife about the new piece of living room furniture..........:rolling: :doh: :clap: :)

Well Lloyd - judging by your current events - you will buy some more exoctica to fill part the space in your garage - then you will 'borrow' other folks bikes to fill the rest !! :clap:

On a serious note tho - if you find that with all the other bikes that you will no doubt aquire over the next 6 months or so - and you are worried about catching / scratching your new MV - then by all means let me know and I will keep that at mine - you see my garage has nothing apart from a few tools and my Nelli - complete with heating and dust extraction - it would never get cold or dusty or scratched at mine :D :D :D :D :D :D

Hmmmmm!

I will keep that in mind Kurt, my garage is not heated at the moment but it will be very soon! Dust extraction, your bike lives a better life than I do!:rolling:

We will have to meet up when I am fit enough to ride!

Don't give it to Kurt Lloyd. My garage has wallpaper made from the finest chinese silk and the carpet that is fitted is exactly the same that's on her majesties living room:rolling:
I also play 24 hour pornos on a 62 inch plasma screen just to keep my bike sexed up. A mini bar and maid 'service' is also available on request;)

Al:)

Lloyd - I can imagine that you are in turmoil now - what with Al's finest chinese silk wallpaper in his garage versus my heating and extraction -
Well let me try and make it easier.
Here are some pics of my garage taken a year or so ago
(I dont have any new pics - but will post some soon :rolling: )

Now I cant justify the expense of a 62 inch plasma etc, but I dont think I need to seeing as the new neighbours are 3 lasses sharing a house - and one definately works at Hooters !!!!! :bow:

The defense has nothing further to put forward my Lord :rolling:

Oh my word!

:p

Kurt, I am swaying towards Al's offer as my pride & joy would look a bit lost in you garage! :eek:
I am also concerned that there may be electro magnetic forces still hanging about which might bugger up Italy's finest electrical systems!:bawl:

:rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Lloyd my dear friend - like I mentioned - those photos were taken...... some time ago, I have now taken some fresh pics now will post them below :spam:

I think you would be wrong to base your choice / opinion having only seen the old photos. :p

Please bear in mind that at the time my garage was considered revoloutionary, in fact it was considered ahead of its time. :doh:

Check out the newer piccies :spam: :spam: then decide
(I didnt like the storage system looking so empty & bare - so please dont criticise me for the manner of how i store my neighbours !!!!) :ele:
