Additional photos of this TnT 1130 Sport Evo are available here for your perusal.

One of the most unique-styled motorcycles in recent memory, the Benelli TnT 1130 was a factory supernaked dominated by a torquey triple that produced 130 hp and 86 lb-ft. As Bennetts summed it up, “If you are into your quirky machines, the TNT 1130 should tick all your boxes. It’s as wild to ride as it is to look at and while spares are tricky to locate, and the dealer network limited, if you look after a TNT it is actually quite a reliable and oddly appealing bike.”

The model was introduced in 2005, though Benelli quickly split the model up with variants that included a Cafe Racer, Titanium, and the Sport – they introduced the Sport Evo in 2007 and set it off with “Sport” on the seat and “Evo” on the engine cowl.

The Sport Evo came with fully-adjustable Marzocchi front forks, fully-adjustable Sachs rear shock, OZ wheels, and Brembo radial brakes.

This example (VIN: ZBNTNTNT88P100389) is offered by the second owner. He acquired it approximately six years ago from a private party in San Diego, who originally acquired it to “keep his Ferraris company.”

Per the seller, the original owner put 681 miles on it however the “bike scared him” so it spent most of its time parked “with his mechanic coming by and firing it up once a week or so.” The seller has covered approximately 1,100 miles with it, and the odometer now shows 1,795 miles. Please note that this TnT suffers from a common issue with Benellis of the time – some of the numbers on the dash are very faint. The seller includes an “off-angle photo where you can see the 5 to some degree, as well as the start-up procedure on the dash where all the digits are supposed to be illuminated and clock to show that digit not working.”

The bike is said to be in almost perfect condition with two scuffs on the right side, one on the engine and one on the lower cowl. The cause of these blemishes is unknown.

There are several upgrades, including carbon fiber bodywork throughout.

Melotti Racing tail tidy (original parts included).

Bar end mirrors/custom titanium bar weights (original parts and tool for bar weights included).

Carbon fiber seat cowl (factory passenger seat and pegs are included).

The seller states that the “maintenance is up to date, but hasn’t been extensive given the low mileage.” At 1,200 miles it got an oil change, fluid flush, and the secondary air controls were removed. The fuel injection map was also updated as these “Benellis shipped originally with a break in map that ran incredibly rich.” A new battery was installed last month. Lastly, “the secondary butterflies in the airbox have been removed, as is typical for these bikes.” He reports that there are no mechanical issues. This bike is currently in Lancaster, California and it is offered with a clean California title. It is currently registered as non-op and does not have any back fees due.

The seller is letting it go as “a new baby in the family has put an end to my riding days for the time being.” Have any questions? let us know in the comments below.
