Additional photos of Limited Edition #112 are available here for your perusal.

Benelli was one of the many companies that struggled to survive the onslaught of Japanese competition, starting all the way back in the 60s. As years passed, Benelli was bought and sold several times until production was shut down and the company was merged into Moto Guzzi in 1988. 2002 marked the return of Benelli, with their first new bike in decades – the Tornado Tre 900 superbike. One year later, the company revealed the Benelli Tornado Tre 900 Limited Edition, a uniquely styled bike that featured a large triple and high quality components.

Though there were some reliability issues, this bike brought Benelli back to the world (it’s still around, currently owned by a Chinese corporation). One of the more interesting technological features was the radiator in the back – if you look closely at the rear end, you can see two yellow radiator fans underneath the brake light, which is one of the coolest things in the world for the 12-year-old inside all of us.

150 Limited Edition’s were produced, and only 40 were scheduled to make to the states at a MSRP of $36,500 – the regular bikes retailed at about half of that. Though 40 were scheduled, less made it out, as Benelli struggled with production schedules and customer satisfaction. The components are top notch, from Marchesini wheels, Ohlins suspension, ExtremeTech steering damper, magnesium motor parts, dry clutches, and ample carbon fiber bodywork.

It is a zero mile machine offered with the MSO. Please note it is a 2002 model per the plaque on the frame but it is filed as a 2003 model on the MSO. It is currently at our Santa Monica, California location – please make an appointment if you’d like to come inspect it up close in person.

Though not pictured, the mirrors are included.

It comes with the race kit which includes swing arm pivot inserts, swing arm shaft, and rear sprockets.

Whichever bike you choose, we’ll also throw in an extra goodie for you! You can choose between a spare tank or a race exhaust (stock included), and we’ll leave the other part to go with the other bike when that sells.

We even have the WSBK racer available, as well!
