Ive now been without my tornado for 113 days and counting!!!!

I had it for less than 7 days

Starting to think I should have bought an RSVR Factory or SP2 like I was going to !!!!!

First day battery left me stranded
fifth day engine exploded

four weeks ago engine was ready but back brake wasnt right
two weeks ago it was ready to go
last week shippers still hadnt got it as expected and called me
this week told its not starting or firing properly

So has anyone seen my yellow RS out and about perhaps as a demonstrator or in many pieces keeping the rest of the uk benellis running???

totally ****ed off with how Ive been treated ........ :doh:

119 days and counting

At least my RS250 arrived last week and I fully serviced it and fitted some arrows and took for a wee spin in the mountains with my cbr mounted buddy who decided to "avoid the ditch" then ended up in said ditch :doh:

Right in time for the 25c weather so nice in leathers, warm tarmac... i could go on :bow:

Don't do it! I part exchanged an SP1 for my Tornado. No comparison. Nelli is faster, handles better and I don't even need to mention the looks. :D

Mind you I've been lucky. I've owned the Tornado for 19 months and it's never skipped a beat :ele: :ele: - 'touch wood'. :eek: Plus I'm not a huge fan of V twins .... my partner has an Aprilia Shiver ..... I'll say no more in case she reads this.

Hope it get's sorted soon. :ele:
