It’s close to hitting its but just falls short in the high standard of the modern That would have to be the way to sum up the Benelli Tornado Tre 1130.

Far being a bad bike, the Tornado isn’t quite there in or refinement when shoved in most of the latest and greatest on the market — lacking the high capabilities that leading can bring to the table in any environment.

The sounding 1130cc triple-cylinder makes this bike in its field, with no similarities for the Triumph Daytona 675 supersport, the high capacity triple seem to thrill like its ‘cousin’.

Even better the note out of the exhaust is the raw engine that come out of it, although I admit I had the noises mistaken for a because it was that rattly at The noises of this bike the attention of onlookers at each set of lights.

Not as grunty as the twins or as powerful as the 1000cc fours, what the does do is give a smooth zap of that gives riders good qualities of both

It’s got different power a four-cylinder, but not as far separated as a twin, somewhat similar to a tamed four in a lot of ways. It has a decent of grunt when on the race although it doesn’t rev anywhere as high as your R1s or ’Blades.

But not supposed to. The point of buying like a Benelli is to stand out in a even relinquishing a touch of just to be different.

While the engine’s only downfall on the track when not at 10/10ths is its vibrations at high it does tend to feature a that feels strong off the flat in the mid-range and then has one hit up top before signing off quickly at 10,500rpm.

Handling is its main on the track, with a heavy limiting its cornering, especially on the but it does have pretty grip from its Dunlop on the exit.

Leaning from on the change of direction isn’t bad but subtle bumps can really put it as the Marzocchi suspension bounces without as much control as

The clutch causes the rear to lock too much on corner when hard under forcing riders to ease it through the ’box.

Braking-wise, the Tornado’s Brembo actually pull it up swiftly its weight, allowing late if you are confident to tip it in on the front tyre a bit of extra speed.

The funky of the tank and seating position, sharp edges in weird tends to suit only a of selected rider sizes, they dig in to your leg or stomach cornering.

That is also a when we take it out on the street, but the feeling of the seating position make it fairly comfortable touring around. It’s not too racy for the road, but isn’t a cruiser either.

The most factor of this bike is the lever pull weight. You need to pop open a can of spinach for muscles like Popeye if you to engage the clutch, because it is hard. It gets tiring quickly — especially in the stop and go of a photo shoot, or similarly, in the confines of city traffic.

Like the track, bumps the 1130 to bounce off line, but in a more magnified way than it does on the track because of the severity of the bumps in the real

In saying that, take it on the bike with no real of using it as a high performance and the ride is actually quite It does the job, but it just react as nicely as some of the mainstream bikes when hard.

Overall, the Tornado Tre 1130 is a wild yearning to be tamed, yet timid to be enjoyable on the road. It might not be as as most of the other sportsbikes on the but it gets the job done if you want to a whole new world.

At an RRP of $26,990 it is quite an expensive but it’s definitely a bike stands out in a crowd — especially those fighter jet-esque hanging out below the duck
