Benelli Tornado Naked T 125 has to the most intimidating bikes at the stall here and looks great and could right alternative to sporty street riding
Benelli, as we told you before is the best place to be today. The DSK brand is clearly upto something when it comes bringing motorcycle and showing them off and teasing us all enthusiast with their range of motorcycles. The brand has everything right from 150cc scooter to 125cc grom bikes that we see here today. The Benelli Tornado Naked T 125 is the mini-me version of the TNT series that we have seen in all cubic capacities. The motorcycle has the tiny stance and has all the equipment you would need to do sport riding, well, in the city, not the track.
The design is so sport on it is hard to believe that it has been done by the folks in China. The cut, curves, molded panels and right use of colors and even suspension units make this bike so purposeful that the litre class bike does not look that intimating to ride. The upward mounted exhaust, the tiny 12-inch wheels, the fat tyres, USD Forks for goodness sake! Front and rear disc. The motorcycle, despite tiny has a lot of muscle around to make it look great. The bug eye headlamps look right in place.
Mechanically, it comes with a 125cc engine, which makes 11.7 BHP and 10 Nm of torque. The air-cooled 4-valve, dual spark motor is one of a kind indeed. THe engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The power is sent to a fat 130 section tyre that is slapped on the 12-inch wheel. The front tyre is 120 section and is also a 12-inch wheel.
7.2 litre tank should do the job here easily. Suspension wise you get a monoshock at the rear and USD forks at the front. Brakes are 220mm single disc at the front with two caliper and the rear is 190mm, the small disc ever. Expect this launch to happen within the next two years if the company, the enthusiast and customers are brave enough to witness so!
