Benelli has been absent from America for a while, và the Italian marque is dipping its little toe back in the market with an entry-màn chơi motorcycle with quite a bit khổng lồ offer.

1. The 2018 Benelli TNT 135 is a rocket. When you look at something as small as the TNT 135, you don’t think freeway speeds. However, I saw 73 mph on this little guy. Yes, it has 10cc more displacement than its competitors, but it also has a four-valve sầu head for more breathing and significantly more power. The Benelli TNT 135 will run away and hide from a Grom or Z125 Pro with its claimed 11.3 horsepower at 8500 rpm. Plus, the TNT 135 is a five-speed compared to lớn the Japanese four-speeds, & that helps give it that freeway-màn chơi top speed.

2. More power requires good handling, and the TNT 135 has it. Sporting an impressive steel trellis frame và a beefy 41milimet fork, the Benelli is remarkably stable. When I was hitting 70 mph through a sweeper on Ortega Highway (shhhhh!), I glanced down at the xe đạp và was wondering if this was a good idea. Yet, the TNT did not waver at all or behave in a way that made me do anything other than leave sầu the throttle in the wide-open position.

3. Twelve-inch wheels and China-sourced Cordial (!) tires don’t sound like the hot thiết đặt, but they work. I can’t say I’ve ever seen a set of Cordial tires on a test bike before, but there’s always a first time. The reality is, the tires vì chưng all that is asked of them. Demands aren’t heavy—the TNT 135 is light and does not put out wheel-spinning horsepower. At low speeds, the Cordial tires work as well at they do in 70 mph corners.

4. Cornering clearance is excellent, so you can lean the TNT 135 over as far as you lượt thích. You may drag a peg or the kickstand in the parking lot if you really try, otherwise cornering is clean on the Benelli.

5. Even when the road is rough, the 2018 Benelli TNT 135 retains its poise. Although the no-name suspension feels unbalanced when bouncing up và down at a stop, it works fine in the real world. At rest, the fork feels underdamped and the shoông chồng overdamped. Again, so little weight & power helps mask any imperfections, & the TNT 135 never lost its composure, even in coarse corners at speeds faster than seem prudent. Did I mention that the TNT 135 has the ability khổng lồ cloud your judgment?

6. The disc brakes work well. With all this talk of going fast, it is important lớn be able to lớn slow down successfully. The discs aren’t huge, but they don’t have sầu much khổng lồ bởi vì. The front brake is strong, though the geometry and weight bias of the TNT 135 doesn’t lover itself lớn easy stoppies. The rear brake has good feel, and you can hook it up for controlled backing into turns—something we, of course, never recommkết thúc you vày on a public highway. Again, the Cordial tires vày their part of deceleration flawlessly.

7. Although the 2018 Benelli TNT 135 has a torquey undersquare motor, wheelies require effort. Be ready for some revving, clutch popping, & pulling on the bars lớn get things going. It can be done, but it requires a skilled h&. That is a feature, not a bug—we don’t want unexpected wheelstands on a novice-focused motorcycle.

8. Beginners will love the TNT 135. The ergonomics are spot-on & not cramped. The controls are where you expect them khổng lồ be và work easily. Comfort is excellent, và you can easily put many hours on the TNT in a day. There is enough torque lớn help prsự kiện the inevitable stalls that beginners will experience when mastering a manual clutch. As much fun as the TNT 135 is for experienced riders who will enjoy wringing it out, its true mission is introducing new motorcyclists into lớn the sport safely, and it does just that. Oh, & the seat height is under 31 inches.

9. You can’t have much more fun in an urban setting than this. Small motorcycles such as the Benelli TNT 135 are incredibly fun in busy traffic. You can squeeze almost anywhere, & even ride on the sidewalk with few people bothering lớn complain (don’t quote me on that if a police officer pulls you over). With all of that maneuverability, the TNT still has plenty of power to lớn pull away from cars when the light turns green. Plus, you can usually park it somewhere without having to lớn pay or worry about a parking ticket (again, no guarantees if you park illegally).

10. Designed in Italy & Made In Trung Quốc may concern some. We can’t speak khổng lồ the long-term reliability of the 2018 Benelli TNT 135. What we can say is that it has engine-life extending features such as an oil-cooler và replaceable oil filter. The motor sounds well put together, even when repeatedly banging against the rev limiter at almost 10,000 rpm, và shifting is trouble-miễn phí. Also, keep in mind that the Z125 Pro, for instance, is made in Vương Quốc của nụ cười, not nhật bản.

11. Fit và finish is quite good, a small notch down from the Z125 Pro và Grom. I don’t have khổng lồ tell you the styling is awesome—the trellis frame, clean tailpiece, and dual organ-pipe exhaust speak for themselves. The motor, which has the performance I love sầu, doesn’t quite looks as refined as the Japanese equivalents. Always remember—China makes iPhones, & you can buy whatever màn chơi of finish you like. Benelli didn’t cheap out.

12. At $2499, the 2018 Benelli TNT 135 is a screaming khuyến mãi. That puts the Benelli $700 less than the Kawasaki và $850 less than the Grom. When you add in the performance of the 2018 Benelli TNT 135, it makes for a highly compelling package for those looking for big fun from a small motorcycle.
