It’s a look you can’t ignore: Muscled up. Narrow waisted. Lovely curves. Sensuous frame tubes. Skimpy bodywork. And that amazingly powerful engine, with a trio of stainless exhaust pipes curving dramatically under and behind that sensational powerplant.
The emotion has only one name: Benelli Century Racer. A real gem for performance and style, a motorcycle with strong character, able to conquer the genuine bikers.
It all starts with that incredible engine – an oversquare 1131cc, liquid-cooled inline triple cylinder with 4-valve heads, double overhead camshafts capable of an amazing power of 158 hp ar 10,200 rpm. That power ripples the pavement via a superbly balanced chassis, featuring a cast/tube-trellis hybrid frame that showcases a 50mm fully adjustable front Marzocchi forks, Sachs fully adjustable rear shocker working through a beautifully crafted tube-trestle swingarm, front twin 320 mm floating wave disc brakes with radial mounted Brembo monoblock 4 piston calipers and rear single 240 mm wave disc brake matched to a Brembo twin piston caliper.
The Benelli Century Racer. A real italian legend.
The Century Racer’s three-cylinder inline engine is a marvel of power production and drivability, giving owners the high-rpm power of an inline-four combined with the grunty midrange of an open-class twin. It’s the perfect streetbike engine, and it sounds like n
Curved tubes of the highest quality steel are employed, and connect to a lovely alloy casting section in back to form a strong yet lightweight cage that uses the amazing three-cylinder engine as a stressed member.
Styling and Body

A 50mm inverted fork featuring rebound, compression and spring-preload adjustability mates with a similarly adjustable single-shock system in back for an amazingly compliant ride and superb wheel control at any speed.
