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.” MCN absolutely adored this machine, calling it “one of the best ever incarnations of the naked motorcycle theme. A massively powerful motor allied to a funky design and capable chassis makes the Benelli TNT effortlessly good at wheelies and general A-road hooning. The Benelli TNT is probably the most ‘out there’ motorcycle money can buy.”
The seller of this example (VIN: ZBNTNTNT47P100004) believes “this to be the nicest, cleanest, most sorted TNT in the US,” and he may have a case based on the upgrades. He’s taken care of a lot of the common issues – the Z25 gear and shaft have been replaced, it has a rebuilt water pump with Samco hoses, new clutch seals and springs, upgraded fuel injectors, and some extras like a MIVV exhaust, custom Maniac Motors downpipe, Brembo clutch/brake master cylinders, Ohlins shock, Matris steering stabilizer, Rotobox carbon fiber wheels, Brembo rotors, and custom carbon fiber body panels. It’s pretty impressive and the sale includes just about every original part as well.
