With 193bhp from its supercharged 1131cc triple, this Benelli TNT should certainly be a handful. Low- and mid-range acceleration should be spectacular...!

Based in Italy, Evotech have prepared a supercharged Benelli TNT 1130, which has been fitted with a Rotrex C15-16 centrifugal-type compressor that spins up to 12,500rpm. With redesigned air-intake trumpets, a pressurized airbox made of carbonfibre and billet aluminium, high-pressure fuel pump from Yoshimura and Motec M84 ECU, the supercharged TNT’s 1131cc three-cylinder, 12-valve, DOHC engine now produces a massive 193 horsepower (the stock motor produces 141bhp) and 145Nm of torque. A new Motec digital instrument panel has been fitted to the bike and allows the rider to control various parameters of the supercharger/engine management system.

The bike uses the limited edition Benelli TNT Tornado’s chassis – a hybrid unit that’s a mix of chrome-molybdenum tubing and die-cast aluminium sections. Brakes are from Brembo, with twin 330mm discs and radial-mount calipers at the front, 17-inch magnesium wheels are from OZ, the rear monoshock is a fully adjustable AB1 Mupo unit and an adjustable Ohlins fork is used at the front.
