Downsized Triple: The 2008 Benelli 899

The 2008 Benelli 899S. Nice...

The very stylish Benelli TNT 1130 now has a smaller sibling – the TNT 899. The new bike is powered by Benelli’s 899cc, three-cylinder engine that makes a respectable 117bhp, which should make for adequate performance in a machine weighing 199kg dry. Apart from the base model 899, there will also be a TNT 899S, which will get a few carbonfibre parts and a different seat. At about US$18,000 the 899S will be a thousand bucks more expensive than the base model bike. Seems nice enough, though we’d still take the full-house 1130…
