Because Benelli is owned by a chinese firm, it was a pretty safe bet to assume that we’d see something small and almost disposable like a monkey bike from the at this year’s EICMA event in Milan. And here it is.


Called the Benelli Tornado Naked T, the bike is available in either 125 or 135cc. It’s powered by an air-cooled, 4-valve dual spark single-cylinder motor that puts out 12bhp.

The chassis gets 12 inch wheels, preload-adjustable rear shock and upside-down forks. It looks pretty funky to us.

No news on price yet, but this bike is expected to appear in 2016’s summer.
