Featuring a light weight rated at only 201 kg and powered by an 1131 cc, liquid cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve DOHC, Inline 3 engine, the Benelli TNT 1130R Carbon Edition delivers an incredible power to weight ratio which makes it the most capable TNT 1130 ever produced.

It is also worthy of being mentioned that the low weight was achieved thanks to carbon parts used for all fairings, chain guard, fuse cover, front and rear fenders.

Overview

Benelli TNT 1130R Carbon Edition

Producing 161 hp (120 kW), the TNT 1130R Carbon Edition is the lightest and most powerful TNT 1130 ever offered. To get the weight down carbon fibre has been used for all fairings, chain guard, fuse cover, front and rear fenders. Along with the weight saving, increased performance has been generated through an engine mapping upgrade, HPE Carbon muffler and a DNA air filter, making the Carbon Edition all together a more exhilarating and stylish ride.

In addition to the striking look of the TNT 1130R Carbon Edition, it also comes standard with cutting edge chassis and suspension equipment including: tubular trestle swingarm, fitted with eccentric rear wheel adjuster, 50mm fully adjustable front Marzocchi forks, Sachs fully adjustable rear shocker, front twin 320 mm floating wave disc brakes with radial mounted Brembo monoblock 4 piston calipers and rear single 240 mm wave disc brake matched to a Brembo twin piston caliper.

Getting the power to the ground, the TNT Carbon Edition employs a race spec sureflex ergal slipper clutch (dry), housed within an impressive carbon fibre clutch cover, driving through a race developed 6 speed cassette gearbox controlled via a two stage power map switch.

The Italian built TNT Carbon Edition epitomises the Benelli brand for being very special and unique. From its amazing performance, addictive looks and Italian craftsmanship, the Carbon Edition will stand out as the pin-up poster model of Benelli and the motorcycle for all those who aspire to own something truly exotic.
