So a real silly question prob but forum search engine says 903 too short to see if asked before...

So here goes... any reason why my Tornado is called "Tornado Novecento Tre RS" / Tornado 903 RS when the engine is 898cc?

According to tech data on Benelli.com
Naked Tre 899 has... 899cc
Tornado Tre 1130 has.. 1131cc

or maybe "ottocento novantotto" doesnt quite trip off the toungue quite so well as "novecento Tre"?

Marketing I reckon Dino;) Makes it sound as if the engine is actualy bigger than it is to grab the attention of those people looking to buy a thousand cc engine or thereabouts. Once they have your attention then like most of us ... you're hooked:D

I think it just means 900 , three ie 900 cc (approx) and three cylinders.
Just like for instance the benelli 254 which is a 250 with 4 cylinders.

Ahhh... obvious really. It does say 900 on the fairing after-all... just some places they write it as 903 as opposed to 900-3 which makes much more sense... cheers :bow:

The meaning of life ehh dino:D

which brings me to my question

is the tornado 898 engine different apart from the cams etc to the tnt899

and if so where does the extra 1 cc come from

it´s more easy...

novecento tre means "900 with 3 cylinders". Even it doesn´t say it by it´s words, but by it´s meaning.

so novecentro tre = 900/3= ninehundred / three = ninehundredthree = 903

I was only joking about the marketing thing Dino. I knew the correct answer all along and was just seeing if the other lads knew *whistles*

Al:eek:
