Benelli Tornado 500 Headed to Australia

Benelli have confirmed the Tornado 500 which was launched at EICMA this year is headed to Australia in the coming months, although there is no official word on pricing or exact date of arrival as yet.

With its sleek and aggressive design, compact dimensions, and a powerful 500cc engine, the T500 is set to redefine the sports segment, catering to the dynamic demands of a rapidly growing global motorbike market and capturing the enthusiasm of a younger audience.

Derived from the technical prowess of its predecessor, the Tornado Naked Twin 500, the T500 shares its frame and the proven 500cc engine. Crafted entirely by the R&D and the Benelli Style Centre in Pesaro, Italy, this motorcycle boasts a fresh styling approach.

The fairing surfaces are sculpted and dynamic, accentuating the sporty character. The compact and contemporary shapes, combined with the sharp tail, handlebars, and a large front headlight fairing, contribute to the refined and modern style.

Powering the Tornado 500 is a 500cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, delivering a smooth yet responsive performance. With a maximum power output of 47.6 hp at 8500 rpm and peak torque of 46 Nm at 6000 rpm, this motorcycle promises an exhilarating ride.

Sharing the frame of its “naked” sister, the Tornado 500 boasts a traditional steel trellis frame, providing agility, speed, and lightness on both straight roads and challenging corners.
