For 2014 Benelli decided to give its most performance oriented model a makeover. With a new name and updates, the TnT 1130 R replaces the R160 as the performance king in the Benelli stable. With its oversquare 1131cc triple cylinder engine producing 116kw (157.8cv) at 10,200 rpm and 120Nm (12.2 kg.m) at 8,400 rpm, the TnT 1130 R is truly one of the most exhilarating naked category motorcycles on the market today.
Controlling this power is an ergal slipper clutch, covered with an impressive carbon fibre clutch cover, driving through a race developed 6 speed gearbox.
Looking past the truly awe inspiring engine, the TnT 1130 R is also fitted with absolute cutting edge chassis and suspension equipment; 50mm fully adjustable Marzocchi forks, mount Brembo monoblock radial calipers, a Sachs fully adjustable shock on a progressive link controls a tubular trestle swingarm, while a dual piston Brembo caliper clamps a 240mm rear disc to stop the alloy rear wheel’s progress. The swingarm is also fitted with a Benelli signature, the rear eccentric adjuster that easily changes ride height and wheel base, allowing easy adjustments to suit the rider. All of this is mounted to a tubular trestle front frame section and an aluminium rear section that provides clear and concise feedback from the tarmac.
Finished with lashings of carbon fibre; bellypan, front mudguard and tail cover, ensuring the TnT 1130 R looks as impressive as it goes. Every review of the TnT 1130 R talks about the enticing character of this raw edged motorcycle, its inspiring handling, amazing brakes and truly chilling exhaust howl from the carbon exhaust. Benelli has always aspired to create for true motorcyclists, an Italian motorcycle they can call their own, behold the Tornado Naked Tre R.
