Well here’s something you don’t see everyday; a 2005 Benelli Tornado on Craiglist:
2005 Benelli Tornado Tre $12,500.
Beautiful Rare Exotic Motorcycle. Green and Silver in color. Approx. 2500 miles.
I have owned this Italian motorcycle since new. I bought it in May of 2006. At the time, it was only one of around 50 or so in the US. It is currently registered in California through May of 2008.
It comes stock with a slipper clutch. The radiator is located in the back underneath the seat for better weight balance. Because the engine can be moved closer to the front wheel with the radiator in the back, it steers like a 250GP bike. It has a lap timer built into the instrument cluster. It sounds great with the stock exhaust! It incorporates the best of a V-twin with lots of torque with the higher rpm sound of a four cylinder.
It is located in Santa Rosa. About an hour north of San Francisco on Highway 101.
Serious buyers only. No joy rides. Delivery available.
If you want to own a true exotic motorcycle and don’t want to see yourself all over the place, this is the motorcycle for you.
Yep, those are the fans for the under-seat radiator. And it’s got a 3 cylinder motor. And according to the is 2002 review of the Benelli Tornado on MotorcycleUSA.com, it was nearly $19k new, probably more in 2005. Is it worth $13k now?
