Benelli is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers in Italy and the entire world, with a history dating back to 1911, and a couple of marvelous bikes produced throughout time. The TNT 1130 is one of the most recent ones, a superbike that was recently turned into a 193 HP supercharged monster by the guys from Evotech.

Extremely light and functional, the Tornado chassis the bike has received is a true work of art, bringing together aluminum and chrome-molybdenum parts. In addition, the bike was fitted with a Rotrex C15-16 centrifugal compressor, which spins at a dizzying 12,500 RPM. The bike has also been fitted with a high-pressure Yoshimura fuel pump, pressurized carbon fiber airbox and reviewed intake.

In conclusion, the 3-cylinder engine, which delivers 141 HP as standard, is now capable of generating a maximum of 193 HP and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque. Of course, such power brings forth tremendous acceleration, which needs to be carefully controlled by the rider.

This is fortunately possible here, as the bike has been equipped with OZ magnesium wheels with Brembo 330 mm discs and a top-drawer Motec M84 ECU, which is now the brain of this Evotech-signed motor. The list of newly-added parts on this Evotech Benelli TNT Tornado 1130 goes even further, with suspensions provided by famous brands, Mupo at the rear and Ohlins at the front.
