The revelation of the new Benelli 750cc triple-cylinder was likely wrong. In internal Benelli documents named as the BJ750GS, suggesting it was a 750cc machine rather than a 900cc or 1130cc model like the existing three-cylinder models. Now it seems those documents were not completely accurate.
The Benelli bosses have already confirmed the company is developing a new 750cc twin-cylinder, and this motorcycle is equipped with a 750cc. The engine is bolted to a steel trellis frame with a tubelar steel swingarm and what looks like Marzocchi forks similar to the BN600R. The radial brakes are Benelli-branded, and the styling is simple and look pretty good. In an era of increasingly complex angular-shaped motorcycles the flowing tank lines an minimal rear bodywork are refreshingly straightforward.
Elements like the swingarm-mounted rear plate hanger and LED lights and indicators are up-to-date, and the slim exhaust silencer, neatly tucked tight against the swingarm, manages to hide the bulky collector box and catalytic converter. The 750cc parallel twin-cylinder motorcycle is set to be the largest of the Chinese-built Benelli's. The higher-capacity, three-cylinder models will continue to come from the Italian factory, while all models up to and including the new 750cc will be manufactured in China.
