Which Bike review

The 654 is basically a more powerful, version of the 504 Sport. The footrests are forward and the ‘bars have a rise. The seat is stepped, and filled with a hard but the riding position is comfortable. the 654 is like the 504 but without the handlebar and a deeper seat with rail.

The rear light is with the mudguard and the indicators are

The instrument console is larger, a voltmeter as well as the usual of warning lights. Linked front and rear brakes is now a of all the four strokes from the 354 to the 900 Six. Another feature is the ignition cut out: the bike start unless the stand is

The 654 actually displaces only each of the four pistons a bore and … of 60×58.4mm. the engine is identical to the 350 and 500 fours a single overhead camshaft driven from the centre of the Primary drive is by a Hy-vo-type that drives a counter which is geared to the clutch and motor.

The valves are operated by screw rockers in the conventional way.

The engine produces a claimed output of 60 bhp at 8,700 rpm and maximum are at 9,500 which would that all the power is at the top end, but is not so. The motor will pull from low revs and it doesn’t torque in this area even in top (fifth) it will reasonably from 4,000 rpm so it’s not just an overdrive.

Top speed is claimed at 119mph but is probably optimistic in the usual fashion and as the engine on the launch was new we couldn’t put it to the test. The Veglia seems to have improved the needles on both clocks steady.

To fire up the 654 the clutch to be disengaged and the side stand up (a light for the side stand be helpful in preserving battery as the motor will turn but it won’t fire). The Dellortos a progressive choke mounted on the side, much better the snap ones associated Moto Guzzi twins. the choke is off the motor settles to a smooth purr and will at l000rpm happily.

Mechanical is higher than we’re to on Japanese bikes with silent cam chains and bucket and followers. The noise soon from the rider’s ear as wind takes over.

Suspension is typically Italian, means good but with the sprung harder than the Having the integral braking means that under stopping the front doesn’t too much as the whole bike to go down compressing the springs and back. This also for more controlled stopping. The is a full double cradle and very rigid. The swing arm a bit light, though it didn’t to have any adverse effect on the

The 654 handles much the same as the 504 which isn’t bad by any standards. The difference is in a lower footrest which restricts the angle of on the 654. The centre stand too can ground easily on left

The Pirelli tyres fitted to the cast wheels were in the dry but didn’t grip too well on the wet roads on which the bike was But to be fair you wouldn’t find surfaces that bad in this (Wanna bet? -Ed.)

So handling and the best brakes you can get the smoothness and zip of a multi cylinder are basically what the 654 has going for it. The is an Italian version of a 500 Honda only most of the Japanese gone to two camshafts so the Benelli dated by comparison though only 4 bhp down on the Z650 and three on the CB650 Honda,

incidentally is the only other around with a single camshaft and that was based on the too. If we are to believe the weight by the manufacturers, 399 lbs dry, then the slight power disadvantage is academic.

The Benelli 654 is small for a 650 class But unlike the sports models up the rest of the range it’s not breaking to ride for long It is obviously an able tourer, but its size doesn’t encourage the use of panniers and the extra weight of items could well the bike down more they would its competitors.

The bike was well fin-ishedand like the proper grab and flush fitting,

lockable cap shows some thought. If the holds out then so much the but the Italians seem to have in this area. The instruments are to read but the warning lights are too dim to be noticed easily in daylight.

the Mickey Mouse switchgear is there and we wish the Italians relent and buy in Japanese switches if for their export machines. It alright but it’s a pain to

The only thing that the 654 down is the boring colour a sort of brick red with striping. If they had used the wheels found elsewhere in the then the Ј2099 price tag seem so high.
