...with the orange and black 1130 as pictured in "Iamthebest" gallery?

Was this a limited edition colour scheme?

If anyone has a better picture of this scheme can they post it as I wouldn't mind a good look at the whole bike.

That is a 1130 Tre ESSE, it was only a one off I believe and they decided not to produce them. It is similar to the 1130 Tre but has better parts including ohlins forks.

Here are a couple of pics that I took at the bike show in 2005 :)




...and this is what it looks like in the dark :rolling:

Even for a one off show bike you'd think that they could at least get the bloody rear seat cowl to have a snug fit. I don't think I've seen one yet that sits how it should:mad: ;)

Laurence, how did I know you'd deliver on the pics.:bow:

That bike is stunning. Almost as nice as green and silver.

Bigger garage required...I want another Benelli with a custom paint job like this.

I can dream can't I???

I am seriously considering painting my Benelli these colours - I would have it all sanded down already but for 1 thing.

My Nelli is Green / Silver which means the frame and swing arm are Silver, and I'm just wondering what this Black orange paintjob would look like with the lighter colour frame and swing arm..........

Hmmmm decisions decisions

I am confused and colour blind.
So Laurence you're saying this photo i have on my wall is an orange tornado and not a GOLD one.

Man I thought it was gold and wanted one in that colour.

I just looked at the orange one in the dark. My photo is definitely gold even better than orange.

I guess the lighting plays a big part in the pics as to how the colours look Paul but these bikes are different so the paint colour may be different also. (the 'gold' bike doesn't have radial brakes but the 'orange' one does)

The bike that was at the Milan show a couple of years back was definitely more of an orange colour that gold :confused:

This one is definitely gold I had a CR photo next to this one and the colours are the same.
