Chinese-owned Italian bike manufacturer Benelli will show their new naked bike dubbed BN600 at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

It looks like the 2013 motorcycle brings a lot of new stuff, starting with the very engine, now a liquid-cooled 4-cylinder packing a 82 HP power rating and a somewhat modest 52 Nm (38 ft-lbs) torque.

The design is quite contemporary and aggressive, with a part of the trellis frame visible under the fuel tank, an Italian trademark we might say if we also take a look at Ducati. The bodywork is however edgy and more into the Kawasaki vein, and matches the fat 17" tires.

While Benelli declares that 2013 BN 600 will be sold for a "competitive price" we're looking forward to hear more of this. With previous reliability issues and an almost inexistent dealership network, we just hope Benelli makes up for all these with a good, dependable bike selling for a decent price.
