Post Sale Update: This Benelli sold for $6,077 after 5 bids on eBay in East Haven, Connecticut.
As long as you don’t mind having almost non-existent dealer support, a modern Benelli offers an incredible riding experience in a package that makes Ducatis seem run of the mill. While most people think of sport bikes or naked superbikes like the Tornado or TnT, some journalists (like Michael Neeves with MCN) thought the Tre-K, a street-oriented tourer that’s similar to a Multistrada – to be the best new Benelli yet.
The engine produces 123 horsepower and 85 pound feet of torque, and Neeves said it was “10 times more exciting” than the powerplant in the 1100 Multistrada. In addition to the exclusivity factor, this bike was supposedly a “practical, user-friendly motorcycle brought to life by a huge injection of Italian charm, speed, and handling.” Quite a lot of praise, then. Head on over to Motorcycle USA for the full review.
This example (VIN: ZBNTNTRK58P100032) has approximately 17,500 miles and it’s been with the seller since the end of 2012, when he bought it from New Haven Powersports. The spark plugs were changed a year ago and the the Pirelli Angel tires have about 2,000 miles on them. Find it for sale in East Haven, Connecticut with bidding up to $5,000 here on eBay.
