BENELLI may not be a household name, but for riders looking for something a left of centre, this manufacturer may be the look you are after.

You be easily mistaken for thinking has been long gone in the market, however it’s going strong, clocking up 100 almost as long as two wheeled have been available.

A adventure Classed as a ‘do anything and go bike, the Benelli Tre-K is an tourer which offers of appeal to riders both in the and performance department.

From the steel frame, with sub frame, to the spectacular triangulated steel swing arm, the Tre-K has that distinctive all its own.

Powering this ‘do anywhere’ bike is Benelli’s electronic fuel injected cylinder engine. It may look familiar as it is also the heart of the Benelli TNT and Tornado.

With 53mm throttle bodies, and valves per cylinder, this makes a very healthy 126 or 92 kilowatts which rips the 205 kg weight) Tre-K down the nicely thank you.

Power peaks at 9000rpm, but it is the area, where riders want to spend most of time, that the engine its best torque, and with the note exiting from the seat exhaust, it begs to be with gusto in this rev

Keeping the Tre-K 1130 on the is well and truly catered for to the fully adjustable Marzocchi upside down forks, keep the front end pointing in the direction.

The front end is very and soaks up plenty of backroad without sacrificing rider Pulling the front end up is handled by four piston calipers, onto twin 320mm discs, which do their job exception.

One noticeable omission some riders may be on the lookout for is which is not available at this on this model. The rear which is certainly a talking due to the triangulated swing arm, and has an Technology rear shock both compression and rebound

We first came upon brand after testing the DB8 SP and have found it’s to fault on both bikes. tells you the company can build to suit all types of terrain. No is it the Italian way of making it super so it handles, which is a good

The rear suspension works well on the Tre-K, whether along at highway speeds or a larrup through the twisties out in the As a whole the suspension package does work well the ‘red mist’ is about and riding is in order, cracking the through its paces certainly the handling is well suited to the bike can deliver.

And when type of riding is in order the has the option of using the Benelli Control, which is a two stage ECU You simply press the button on the further livening up the motor, the rider a few more revs to with, along with initial response from the triple. On the flip side, the setting can be chosen for around riding or to assist with wet riding, or dirt roads.

It’s not just about the and torque with this as the upright riding position and seat and height of 850mm, time in the saddle a real no matter whether it’s town or on the open road.

doesn’t stop there as the screen has a three step allowing the rider to change height to suit their own and although it does seem a flimsy, it does the job of keeping the flowing over the rider fine.

The side mirrors being an odd shape, do a great job of an eye out of what is looming behind the On the flip side of the mirrors, the indicators are mounted and well

A mixture of both analogue and fixtures adorn the dash, with the power control with the tacho and temp feeding instant information to the via the easy to read dials.The dash features a large speedo, vertical bar fuel and clock, along with a trip meter and odometer.

If a of touring is in order, Benelli has a set of panniers, which offer good looks and enough to throw in enough gear for an stay or weekend away. The can be easily attached or removed a simple press of a clip on the side of the panniers, and lift straight off the frames.

More just a good looker

is no question the Benelli is a versatile as it is very capable of regular town riding, but can also the tourer in us as the riding position is on the mark, and with 21.5 in the tank, allows a good few of riding before a fuel is warranted.

It’s designed for mainly tar and rough tar at that, but it can also fine with dirt and the odd fire trail if you are a keen and rider. It’s not just an bike masquerading as an adventure Of course if it’s a case of the racer’ coming out to play the Tre-K is also capable of the heart racing thanks to the growl from the engine, and the on tap.

Italian manufacturers are known for their build and the folks at Benelli have kept up this tradition the Tre-K. It is a niche bike in a market and due to this it may not appeal to all but when stopped on the road or in a group of bikes, it certainly turn a few heads.

This model has been for a few years now, and it still is an machine in both the looks and department.

With a rideaway of $17,990 and a two year unlimited Australia wide network the Benelli Tre-K offers for money as far as we are concerned.

For a limited Benelli is throwing in a set of panniers $1000 to sweeten the deal, so get on and check them out at or in to your nearest Benelli
