Benelli its new Tre899K as an entry-level sport-touring and by the Italian firm’s standards is an apt description. Along with year’s TNT899, the Tre-K has the engine and lowest price of line of triples. And like its big the Tre1130K, it’s a softer, relaxed alternative to the aggressive, TNT.

But all you have to do is hear the malicious emanating from the DOHC, triple to suspect that definition of entry level from that of other By the time you’ve howled the first few gears and piloted the around a couple of bends, clear that the Tre899K is no softie, but a quick, sweet-handling that’s filled with charm.

The downsized Tre-K has legitimate long-distance credentials, It’s based on the Tre1130K and the same aluminum and steel relaxed steering geometry, suspension travel and half The motor is a mildly detuned of the TNT’s 898cc, liquid-cooled

New camshafts and injection mapping boost low-rev grunt and the powerband, but reduce peak from 120 bhp to a claimed 106 bhp at 10,000

All instruments are well placed and to read. The raised, one-piece bar has a bend and an agreeable width. The appreciated design feature is the windscreen, which is easily to accommodate differing rider or weather conditions.

The three-cylinder motor is flexible, pulling from rpm with the effortless stomp of a bigger engine. There is no power step, just a satisfying swell of power as the needle swings towards by a soulful sound from an system that must required a fat stack of euros to European noise tests.

Maybe the TNT’s extra power would be handy at but the Tre-K’s fluid delivery is a compromise. Most times I myself accelerating out of blind with about 5000 rpm on the with the bike hauling Top speed is about 140 mph-fast for most.

My only real moan was a slight high-frequency through the bars, which I recall from the TNT. At the mirrors stayed pretty

With all that suspension I didn’t expect the 899K to as well as the … TNT, but the sprung and well-damped fork and were more than up to the of charging down twisty, roads. At a claimed 463 pounds of gas the Tre-K isn’t light, but the of wide bars, reasonably geometry and near-limitless cornering made it plenty flickable.

The Tre899K is a quick and entertaining that has heaps of midrange and an addictive three-cylinder character. It may be as a beginner’s bike, but it’s than up to the task of entertaining riders as well. Too bad Benelli is this one to itself.

Despite homologated for the U.S. market, the Tre899K won’t be sold any time soon.
