A Little Benelli History
The Benelli story began in Pesaro with the widow Teresa Benelli establishing a garage, using all of her family's limited capital, in order to build a business to support her six sons. The garage repaired cars and motorcycles and soon went on to make spare parts. (See also Women in Motorcycling)

The small business grew, and in 1920 the first Benelli engine was produced, a 75cc two-stroke. The following year they built a Benelli motorcycle, now powered by a 98cc powerplant.

By 1923 their OHC motorcycles were on the racetrack with Antonio Benelli in the saddle, and by 1931 he had won four Italian championships. His stellar career ended with a bad crash in 1932. The bikes continued to take their riders to the front, and in 1939 the TT was won by Ted Mellors on a Benelli.

World War Two saw the total destruction of the Benelli factory in Pesaro.

The business began rebuilding after the war, but there was discord between the brothers and Guiseppe left to form his own company, Motobi.

By 1962, the two factories employed 550 people and between them were producing some 300 motorcycles a day, but by the end of the decade the Japanese onslaught was taking its toll and despite the creative skills of the new owner, Argentinian Alejondro de Tomaso (who also owned Moto Guzzi and was building some very attractive sports cars), the factory was forced to cease production. In 1980 Pesaro-based businessman Giancarlo Selci came to the rescue but the deal did not work out and Benelli slipped into obscurity until, in 1995, Andrea Merloni (whose family own Indesit, makers of whitegoods) came onto the scene. By 2002 the Tornado 900 had burst onto the world's stage, followed by the TNT Roadster of 2005.

Benelli was sold to Motor Group Qianjiang corporation located in southeast China at Wenling around 2009.

1962 Benelli Monomarcia 49CC
Hello, I am a claims adjuster in Nashville, TN. I have been tasked with valuing a 1962 Benelli Monomarcia that is in incredible condition. I can find nothing on the internet remotely comparable to it. Do you have any idea what that would be worth? It is in such good condition that the accessory leather saddlebags are in great shape. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Benelli Trail late 60s I was told

Hi, I've recently purchased a barn find that I'd like to restore (bike in picture for reference only!). It was sold to me as a 68/69 175 trail bike. Chassis number on one side is DGM101370M, the other side is MT*11169F?? BENELLI Engine number MT*6181BENELLI. Is there any way of verifying it's age and cc from these markings? Many thanks in advance for any information or advice. Regards Ben.

Benelli Toranado Tre 1130 cc
need help with my newly purchased used model year 2008 Benelli Toranado Tree 1130 cc with 2,100 miles..need both owner's & factory workshop manuals.. bike makes unmanageably loud noises from the left front quarter of the engine..sounds as if the starter motor's clutch is not disengageing..is there a problem with the starter or some other common cause of this noise?..is there a factory repair bulletin ?..how to repair or what might it be it?..also where to purchase parts?.. thanks for any help with this situation...good luck to all of us we need it..
Michigan U.S.A.

Thank you very much for your help in posting I'm not handy with a computer...sorry don't know how to post photos...the bike is a 2008 with 2,100 miles primarily green in color with silver trim black color seat, three cylinder 1130 CC engine, she sure is a beauty.....can't imagine what the noise is as I have been riding for close to sixty years and can tell when a bike is making strange noises...this girl is not smooth in sound.....the tranny's dry clutch is not the source of the noise as the noise remains whether or not the tranny clutch is engaged or not.....gets louder with revs?...so far the only other info I was able to gather from a former dealer was that there was a notice sent out about noise and he though he recalled it had something to do with the starter motor's one way clutch? ..any further help is much appreciated...thanks again ...take care

Benelli Barracuda or Sprite
Purchased and identified a Benelli with a 250cc motor. I don't know the year and am trying to research it as a Barracuda or a Sprite. I believe the 250cc Sprite production ended 1965 and the Barracuda was introduced in 1966. This bike does not have the California edition. The first three of the VIN is: 100. Can youu help narrow down the year so I can process appropriate paperwork in order to title the motorcycle. I am inclined to call it a 1966.

TNT electrical problems
Benelli TnT naked Tre 1130 sport
Dear Sir
I own a Tnt Tre naked 2006 model. I have had numerous problems with the starting of the bike since I bought it new. The starter seems to labour as soon as the bike is hot, sometimes the battery will go flat while trying to start it after I have driven it and the motor is hot. Recently my bike just broke down next to the road and the battery was completely flat. I have measured the charging of the alternator and it does not seem to charge my battery anymore. Do I need a new diode for the alternator and can you ship it to me in South Africa?
I also had my starter serviced to see if I can improve the “hot†starting problem, but now it seem like the starter is turning in the wrong direction and does not engage with the motor, the service guy says it is impossible? Does the starter have to turn clockwise or anti-clockwise? At the moment it turns clockwise and I am sure that is wrong?
Please give me some help/ advice for in our dark continent here is no-one that has the knowledge and also no agents for benelli.

Well I guess I lucked out, the motor and exhaust were full of water, so I removed the cyl head and used dewatering spray to free up the crank, got it running same day. It has a missfire even though the gasket is ok, would you know what the spark plug gap should be, the model of this one is 1970 serial no. 581492, any idea of what its worth

Pardon my ignorance but I've lost track of who owns who in Italy these days. Last time I looked Benelli was part of the De Tomaso empire. Who owns them now? Are they independent ? Are they still part of Guzzi ?

Benelli are now owned by Italian businessman, Andrea Merloni, whose family own Indesit, makers of fridges etc. www.strega.freeserve.co.uk I forgot to mention that Franco Lambertini, designer of the 3 1/2 , has left Piaggio and moved to Franco Morini Motori as head technician. Cagiva no longer own the rights to use the Morini name, not that they ever intended to anyway , presumably Lambertini still has the designs for the "new" Morini 750cc engine he designed around the time of the Cagiva take over. A new large capacity Morini may be in the pipeline, but not for a few more years yet. -- Steve -- 478cc.cwc.net

Selling my bike
Benelli 125 Sport
I own a red Benelli 125 Sport two-stroke motorcycle. I understand that it was imported in 2000 and the year of manufacture has been listed in the UK as 1982. It has only done 8920 (genuine) km.

I have all MoT certificates (from 2000) inc current one and also the service books which have detailed drawings for servicing and electrical systems diagrams.

It is in excellent condition, the engine is fine, runs perfect and the chrome exhausts have hardly any marks on them - they polish up lovely! I am looking to sell and am open to genuine offers.

1966 benelli cobra 125
I do not have a picture at this time I'm also in need of a flywheel for the above mentioned bike. I discovered mine is cracked around the center of the hub. what type of puller do you recommend to remove the flywheel? thanks, Daniel

Dansi is the name on the flywheel. It is approx. 4 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 inch in thickness. I have several types of conventional pullers but I think that they would destroy it during removal. Although at this point it doesnt matter because its cracked, so I,ll need to locate another at some point in time. Anything that you may run across would GREATLY be appreciated. THANK YOU DANIEL

The number on the flywheel is as follows, ASL201B below this number is the manufacture date of 7 65. Hopes this is more helpful to you than my previous imformation.

The type of flywheel puller required is similar to that pictured here, Daniel. I'll try to track down a source for the correct tool.
