1971 Benelli Tornado650 green

Colour: Metal green.

The 650 Tornado has been presented at the end of the 60′ s and it is the last model produced by the Benelli’s from Pesaro, Italy. This bike entered the market in 1970 only in the USA and in 1971 in Italy due to a serious delay while bringing up the machines to the new production standards. In that period this delay was fatal.

 The Honda CB 750 Four entered the market few months before and changed the concept of bike as was intended till that moment. Instead, just new to the market, the Tornado seemed to be old. However this complicated and unlucky story make this bike today charmer than ever.

The design is clean and essential in the respect of the 70′ s Style.

We talk about a solid 4-stroke parallel-twin engine of 650 cc. This 50 horsepower engine makes the bike sporty and really amazing. The frame is a masterpiece of the Italian tradition design: precise and steady, bend after bend. Vibrations are not absorbed at all,  especially up to 4000 rpm.

It is more comfortable if you ride the bike at a tourist rate. These features are rather typical of the parallel-twin cylindrical engine of that period and make this bike really amazing while riding! The gear change pedal of the 5-speed transmission is on the right side just like the Italian and English bikes of that period.

The first gear is up.

Riding this bike requires lot of concentration, especially during the first kilometres. If you are used to have the gears pedal on the left, you might hesitate a bit.  The clutch lever on the handlebar requires force to be thrown, so we recommend you to strengthen your forearms before riding one day long! The big front brake is a 230 mm 4-cams central drum.

Breaking is more than acceptable but can not be modulated as you wish. The rear drum brake works perfectly. However, at a tourist rate, the low gear of the twin cylindrical engine limits the use of brakes. The insufficient comfort in the saddle will be replaced by the adrenalin and the emotion in riding this bike.

The passenger is advised! Tornado has a strong and sporty personality. The elastic twin cylindrical engine offers a very amazing way of riding, especially on roads full of bends.

 This bike could be the right choice for an average experienced rider with a certain physical presence.

The great rider Renzo Pasolini and the famous actor Steve McQueen were test pilots of  the legendary Benelli Tornado 650!

Enjoy your ride!
