Design wise Benelli has chosen to give the BN 600 a sharp yet a bulky look. The BN 600 looks very aggressive, but at the same time has a very comfortable riding position making it easy to handle in urban environments. The frame is made of steel supported by an aluminium structure at the rear. The fuel tank capacity is at 15 litres. The BN 600 has USD forks at the front and an aluminium swingarm with a pre-load adjustable rear mono shock absorber. The braking is handled by a 320mm twin discs with four piston callipers at the front and a 240mm single disc with two piston callipers at the rear. 17 inch Aluminium alloys are used to save weight and feature 120/70 section tyres at the front and a 180/55 section tyre at the back.
