Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm thinking of investing in a Benelli Tornado, just because I like the look of them. Anyone got any experience of them?

    usual rattly italian bike with dodgy electrics and very expensive spares. if you get one strip it down and spray it repeatedly with a wax or similar
  3. Is that personal experience?
  4. Alleged to handle nicely but can be uncomfortable, and with a raspy engine. Still, at £5999 OTR for the Tornado Tre 903 it could be worth a punt for a weekend toy. Just be aware that it will eventually turn into a money pit.

    No, I don't have one.
  5. Very nearly bought one a few years ago, was put off when the salesman wouldn't let it idle without the clutch being held in. Apparently they had a habit of dropping themselves into gear and launching themselves across the workshop at the dealers.

    Damned pretty though

    with italian built bikes yes. and the guys on the forums who work on them.
  7. That's one of the main reasons for my interest. Comments suggest I should look elsewhere. Thanks.
