this is a cut message from the german forum under benelli translated by google.
Basically saying only 25 Ti TnT's were made, no cafe racers, and a few sports and only half the expected TnT's due to the falling apart of previous potential buyers pre the china buyer. The 06 models are
slightly upgraded 900 Tornado
slightly upgraded 900RS
New 1134cc RS Tornado (?!!!!!) :eek , with ohlins suspension and steering damper & radial brembos etc and 165 bhp. How much better could it be than the RS suspension,?, best Ive ever had the pleasure to use, still bling it up ;)
New Tre-K
TnT slightly upgraded
TnT Sport slightly upgraded, new colours
Cafe finally produced
Ti TnT's with slight colour changes over what was originally planned
BIG News!, motors no longer to be made by Moto Franco Morini
And recalls scheduled for early 06, most likely wiring looms, clutches etc.

Already saving for me next one :rollin
