Benelli TNT Tornado 1130 193BHP of supercharged fun

Benelli have always stayed true to what they believe in, make hardcore performance motorcycles. Now when such performance oriented motorcycles reach the hands of a tuner, what you have is nothing short of magic. Evotech have supercharged the Benelli TNT 1130 with a Rotrex C15-16 centrifugal-type compressor that can spin upto 12,500RPM. This addition meant they had to redesign the air intakes, reinforce the airbox with carbon fibre and billet aluminium and then add a high pressure fuel pump from Yoshimura and also a Motec M84 ECU.

The Benelli TNT Tornado 1130 with its 3 cylinders and 12V DOHC now produces a max power of 193BHP and max torque of 145Nm. The chassis is from a limited edition Benelli TNT Tornado that uses a special mix of chrome-molybdenum and die cast aluminium in sections that facilitate for mid corner flex. Braking is handled by Brembo’s at both ends, suspensions by Ohlins in the front and a fully adjustable AB1 Mupo unit at the rear and magnesium alloys from OZ for the wheels. In addition to all this Evotech has added a multifunction digital meter through which the rider can change various attributes of the supercharger and the ECU. Check out the video below to see the bike in action, jump to 0:41 to see it on the rollers and 1:14 to see it on track.
