Benelli’s goal was clear: create an even more explosive racing bike. And that is exactly what the TNT Titanium is: inspired by racing bikes but with the handling and versatility that only the Naked bikes can offer.
The exhilaration of riding a true racing bike is guaranteed by the exceptional equipment: carbon fairings, titanium exhaust system, totally adjustable suspensions at low and high speeds, dry clutch, forged wheels, radial brake system, an eccentric system for complete footboard adjustment.
Everything needed for perfect tuning when riding the TNT Titanium on its natural terrain: the track.
The elegance of this bike is also enhanced by the unique colour of the fairings and frame and by the exclusive fabric seat.
An important innovation in the motor: as in all of the TNT model year 2005 versions, the Titanium offers the possibility of modifying motor functions by simply pressing a lighted button on the dash support. The engine control unit can be switched between free power and controlled power for better control of the motorcycle in poor traction conditions with a decrease in fuel consumption of 10-20% depending on driving style and on the road.
The free power configuration makes it possible to fully enjoy the torque features and motor power, while the controlled power configuration makes it possible to easily use the bike in the city, even on asphalt with poor traction, either alone or with a passenger, without stress.
The exclusive technical aspects are also seen in the exceptional cycle: this version sports a powerful 50 mm fork completely adjustable in compression, extension and spring preload, with a hardened surface to improve the sliding qualities which contribute to making the road holding solid and precise.
The back shock absorber body is in Ergal - light and unique in the world panorama; it is completely adjustable in compression - with double adjustment for high and low speeds - extension and spring preload to offer a good level of performance constancy and to make riding safe in all asphalt conditions.
The attention given to the quest for lightness and performance is confirmed by the use of Marchesini rims in forged and machined aluminium alloy and the Brembo braking system which mounts a 4 piston radial calliper and a 320 mm diameter double disk at the front.
As you can see, the TNT Titanium is an unprecedented, unique motorcycle with a personality that marks a change in the world motorcycle market.
