1972 Benelli Tornado 650cc
Reg. no. YOD 682K
Frame no. ES 2430
Engine no. 2439
Benelli is the oldest Italian motorcycle manufacturer, starting in 1911 by the six Benelli brothers, who enjoyed some success on the racetrack, especially in the 1930s, with some creatively designed motors. This Benelli Tornado is one of the first 650cc twins, which was introduced in 1969 primarily for the British and American markets as a competitor for the Triumph Bonneville. It earned a reputation for good performance and reliability, despite its somewhat heavy weight of 480lbs. This early Tornado is said, by our vendor, to be in good overall genuine condition and he informs us that the engine runs very smoothly. It is offered with a current V5c and a current MOT that expires in January 2018. There are also some replacement exhaust header pipes included in the sale.
