2011 Benelli TnT R160 Naked Bike Now Available in the US
At the heart of the R160 is a three-cylinder engine developing 155hp at 10,200 rpm and 120Nm of torque at 8,400 rpm.
Unique to the R160 is the chassis that consists of a main section of a steel trestle completed by aluminum cast structure in the area of the swing arm pivot.
Aluminum-alloy wheels offer a five-spoke design, while the exhaust pipes follow precisely the forms of the engine before merging at the bottom and climb back towards the tail, located between the rear fender and the thin taillight unit.
As for the tires, the one at the front is in the usual measure 120/70, while at the rear you can choose between the 190/50 or the two additional measures, 180/55 and 200/50, the latter particularly suitable for use on the track.
Customers can choose between two colors, the white with red frame and red with frame mat gray titanium.
“Overall performance: it is the slogan that summarizes the essence of the more sporty Benelli model, a model without compromising on power and efficiency of driving, on public road and on track freedom. Born on the Roadster Cup Race, the R160 is a hymn to the performance, thanks to a three-cylinder engine in its most refined, and chassis that is enriched with adjustable suspensions: giving you a pleasure to get best lap time or enjoy the most beautiful mountain roads,” Benelli brags.
