Benelli 500 LS

The Honda of this test has imported from Italy less than 20.000 km on the Only a hard cleaning and all original components look new. The engine needed an oil change, new spark plugs and a carbs cleaning. Once on the the bike run in very good

The Benelli was found abandoned in a with 22.000 km in the clock. The owner has had some problems the batterie charge and decided to it. 8 years later the machine was there and I bougth it for 600 Euros.

The charge problem was a hearth wire. A new batterie, new oil, plugs and a serious carbs and the bike was again on the road.

The was not original in the Benelli but was in good as the rest of plastic and chrome In general the Benelli was in not as good as the Honda, due to the poor quality in the components of the italian bike.

To be honest, this test be realised between the Benelli 500 (1974) and the Honda 500 Four but the Benelli 500 LS (1976) itґs a logical option than the

A new smaller frame adapted to the cylinders engine, reduced the dimensions of the bike. Only few were needed in the engine to get it and a new cosmetic touch made the new looking much lighter an than the Quattro model.

The ignition key itґs under the tank on the Honda and you can fire the with a kick or the electric No matter on the Benelli, only start with the ignition key the clocks.

The engine sound itґs throught the four pipes in bikes, but the Benelli has aftermarket “Ixil” silencers, less than the original items in the Honda. Over 6.000 rpm the sing a lovely racing

The controls are similar in both with more or less the information, but in the Honda are generally a design and a easy handling. The lever has similar touch but the twin Brembo brakes are to the single woody touch on the The Keihin carbs linking are to twist than the Dellґortos with stronger springs and are sensibles to be dereglated.

On the road both bikes run with good ground and general confort. The Honda has an fuel tank capacity and a 19” whell instead the 18” in the Benelli. The position itґs more an ergonomical in the Honda, giving the weihgt to the front wheel .

The fuel tank in the Benelli a riding position placed more efective when fast. The original hight fovorise the optimun control of the

The gear ratios are longer in the favouriting better acelerations and a top under good conditions. In the Benelli feels rageous and at any speed. The engine breath with italianґs carbs and the megaphones.

Faster we run better the Benelli showing his superior frame, 18” wheel, better brakes and suspensions and only reaching the in local roads the Honda follow the italian. But this is not logical use. In general the feels ligther and smaller the Honda and has not the “classic charisma” of the bike.

The italian engine is realiable but no at the same level the japanese one. The quality of the and the controls used in the italian are too far of the japanese techonology. The best fitting a Honda engine a Benelli rolling frame, a easy job because both have the same points of

The French breakers have a lot of Honda engines for reparing or italian engines. In fact, few parts can be interchanged into engines. So it was cheaper a full hand Honda engine reparing the original italian with original parts.


Why tu look for a Benelli 500 LS, a Honda 500 Four. Itґs not an question, mainly when you can get of Honda at a reasonably price, but few Benelli out there. Only the or the exigent can get a good response

If you have a Benelli in your itґs very posible you a Honda CB500Four too. But if bike itґs a Honda it could be very dificult need a Benelli. But what for racing? Oh, yes!

This is another matter. An itґs flying over my An italian good frame with a TUUUNNEED! Four with four curveb (Swarbrick Racing please!), Koni shocks, Tarozzi rear set, Tomasselli and the old Pasolini greygreen paintwork coulour and the result could be

Itґs your time for now.
