Benelli has undergone a serious resurgence over the last few years, with a raft of new models rolling out of Italian factories doors. And now some spy shots have appeared in China which confirm that there’s another on the way. This time it’s a naked sportbike – and it’s called the BN600 (or TNT 600, depending on where you’re based).
Since being bought out by the Chinese motorcycle giant Qianjiang, Benelli has been hard at work developing and manufacturing an eclectic mix of modern machines with a focus on value for money. In fact, back at EICMA in 2017, Benelli unveiled a total of ten brand new motorcycles to the world. And now there’s a new one set to appear; the BN600 naked.
Admittedly, the BN600’s not an entirely new concept. The BN600 was on sale until 2016, before the advent of Euro 4 regulations put a halt to production. But now, spy images from China have confirmed that a new BN600 is coming. At first glance, the new BN600 doesn’t look dramatically different to the previous generation bike; but a closer inspection of the spy shots reveals a few interesting details worth mentioning.
