The BN 600GT is a new visionary sports-tourer suitable for all types of riders, including those contemplating touring for the first time. It is intelligently designed and offers impressive performance on every ride – whether in town or on the open road.
The BN 600GT joins the BN 600 range sharing the inline four-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine, as run in the popular BN 600R. The engine has a maximum power of 62 kW/84 hp at 11,000 rpm and maximum torque of 56,7 Nm at 8,100 rpm, matched to an optimal 6 speed transmission for touring.
Benelli’s renowned Italian styling and ingenuity has gone into the unique fairing design, upright seating position and ergonomics, with attention to detail that defines the GT amongst its peers.
The GT’s road handling is considered best in class with inspiring dynamics that are attributed to its rigid tubular steel trellis frame that incorporates the engine as a stress member. The suspension system consists of a 50mm upside-down front fork, and a rear aluminium alloy swingarm with a rear shock absorber that has adjustable rebound and spring preload.
Stopping the GT is Benelli’s cutting-edge braking system that gives maximum safety thanks to a twin floating 320mm diameter disc at the front with four-piston radial calipers and at the rear, a 260mm diameter disc with a two-piston caliper.
The fuel tank has a generous 27 L capacity, allowing the rider to enjoy longer trips before filling up. Excellent fuel efficiency also makes this motorcycle a viable alternative to the car for the everyday commute and weekend tour.
The BN 600GT is offered in white, matt army green and black and will be available by mid-2015.
