At the upcoming EICMA motor show in Milan, Chinese-owned Italian brand, Benelli will debut the Benelli BN600 street-naked bike set to be available in 2013.
Unlike many Benilli's that powered by three-cylinder engines, the latest BN600 makes use of a four-cylinder 600 cc engine producing 82hp at 11,500rpm and 51Nm at 10,500rpm.
The liquid-cooled four-stroke engine is a fuel-injected unit with twin cams, 38mm throttle bodies, and is hooked up to a six-speed manual gearbox via wet clutch. The bike's innards are held together by an upper steel trellis, lower aluminium plate frame, and the aesthetic is appealing.
The bike also appears to feature twin undertail exhausts and some plastic cladding below the fuel tank for visual flair.
Suspension for the bike comprises 50mm upside-down forks and basic rear shock mounted to the right of the frame, while 320mm radial front brakes appear to be clamped by four-pot calipers. Rounding out the specs are the BN600′s 17″ wheels with 120/70 & 180/55 tyres, front to back respectively. The fuel tank capacity is 16 litres, and it will be available in white, black, and orange colour.
