Benelli 650S Tornado
The more you read about this unusual and exotic Italian classic the more you want to ride it...fast. It's unique short-stroke pushrod engine is designed to rev and produce power throughout the rev-range. This example has, we understand, undergone a complete rebuild in Italy and had lots of money spent by the one UK owner since importation in 2014. New alloy wheel rims with stainless spokes laced to the amazing double sided twin-leading shoe front brakes, the excellent Sachse electronic ignition system replaces the original early Bosch type and there is a list of new parts on file. Registered on a correct 1972 plate, all the documentation is in order and numbers correct on the machine and the paperwork. There is a CD with lots of old pictures, wiring diagrams and parts diagrams, an intersting Cycle World article on the bike which is very revealing in it's period detail and a collection of invoices and photographs. Currently in the workshop for carburretor rebuilds and electrical tidying, it will emerge very nice indeed with a host of detail improvements including new handlebar grips. Something different with a story to tell. If you're looking for a unique bike with character and you like yellow then you've struck gold!
