Best mini-motorcycle by far, cost wise, looks wise and what you get for the money.

Benelli 2020-21 sell for between $2,900-$3,900 out the door.
What you get
4 valve head, 2 spark plug setup, external oil cooler, oil filter, 5 speed, sexy looking, Get the Green or all Black two best colors, comes with tools.

Vendors
Steady Garage, sells upgrade parts kinda pricey
Gear-UP Vietnam vendor Trung Le is the person to contact for parts

If changing sprocket setup, the front sprocket is the same as a Honda Grom, and best setup for top speed is 17/32T and replacing the 428 chain with a HD chain or a X-ring chain.

Best upgrades I found before I went 450cc transplant is, UK blackwidow full exhaust using a Amazon $49 muffler, Aracer mini-5 bought from Trung Le best price sent to USA including shipping is better than most USA vendor prices.

The speedo is 10% off so if most people say they are going 70mph on a Benelli they are going 63mph. How to correct speedo via on board switches on the speedometer

The OEM tires are OK or at best better than the Honda Grom OEM tires

Check and recheck all bolts and such and use loctite

Been selling all my Honda Groms and parts, there is no comparison Benelli rules for price, styling, and fit.

Angel Os and Mike Davis out of Las Vegas can set you up on custom CNC parts for the Benelli, plus they can re-flash your stock ECU for better performance which is cheaper than buying a Aracer Mini-5. The Aracer cost around $399, re-flash cost around $190 unless you know someone who has a ECU reflasher box for Delpi ECU

Me with my 450cc water cooled 6 speed 42hp transplant can hit 100mph no time flat, cruise all day 60-70-80-90 mph long distance with no issues like I had with the Grom melting pistons or engine failure.

My Red/White Benelli is in Las Vegas right now and is 90% complete with the 450cc transplant, waiting on Ducati Clone front brake unit and some other CNC parts.

This is what is done to the frame to fit a 450cc engine, neat thing about the transplant is that it uses the same wire harness from the Benelli tnt 135, uses the same Aracer mini-5 used for the benelli tnt 135, replacement part is the rear swingarm which you save about 12 lbs of wt when using a Keyspeed Grom rear swingarm.

...I guess that's a "no", then... :confused2: :screama::lol::up:

...how long did you ride a stocker...???...what did you think of that...???...

...they list @ $2749 here in New Haven...they have a pretty red one... .!.:D.!.

...most of the you tubes on it are babbling idiots on their first bike n shit...

...it seems more like a real motorcycle than the other minis...it looked like 66mph was the highest GPS speed noted...

...if they do 60+ w/o exploding a stock bike might do ok...I was thinking of getting one to ride over to tinhead's on occasion...

...60 miles of back roads and state highways....even some dirt...it would be like an adventure...could go 80 miles...I still know some roads...

...I don't know if he is vaxed or not but I am...we could get pizza...or maybe go to Jimbo's w/ his scooooter and not drink...LoL...

...this chicken gorganzola pizza he gets has changed my life, eh...

...the TnT 135 is cheap enough so anyone here could probably just buy one if they wanted...it could be like getting the band back together...!!!...LoL...!!!...

...I am surprised the other Negros didn't buy them all already...they won't last long...there is a pack of 300 or so like machines rolling around here sometimes...

...these guys are the new, true, outlaws...the cops don't even fuk with them...LoLoL...!!!....

...I want to get me one o' them bad ass outlaw machines...

I'd walk before I bought a motorcycle, scooter or car from fucking China.

I'm slightly disappointed Cisco slobbers the Chinese cock the way he does, but it's still a free country... :fu:
better stock up on USA made stuff You want/need...

prices going up on USA goods while Chyna will take heavy losses to keep dumping goods to wall-mart etc... :(

Yep it's usually all these guys who own Chinese own parts in their car/motorcycle/TV/washer/driver/computers who talk with their heads cut off that they would not buy Chinese made stuff, even your meds are made in China.

Been riding enough Honda Grom crap to know that the Benelli TNT 135 will walk all over the OEM Grom, if you don't own one keep your two cents or one cents to yourself. Go check your computer, TV, cellphone, washer, dryer, and internals of your American made modern car most parts made in China or Mexico

you will not go wrong with a Benelli if you break in the motor like you stole the bike, change the oil, oil filter at the first 500 miles, my benelli was fast when I broke it in like I stole it added the blackwidow pipe, 17/32T sprocket setup and Aracer ECU and I let my friend ride my Benelli before I upgraded to the 450cc engine and he said it was way faster than his 2021 Benelli TNT 135 and he bought two of them and he wanted to buy my blackwidow exhaust pipe and sprockets when I did the transplant and he even bought my front/rear brake calipers since I upgraded them.

This is the guy that builds my 450 setup and notice the speed of the transplant engine, blows those BBK kit groms even those made buy GromFatherZ and also those 300cc CB engine Honda Grom transplant. There's 5 of theses 120mph Benelli TNT in the world and I own the first Green one and soon will pickup my Red/white 450 in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks and I will have two fastest Benelli TNT in the world and we are still upgrading the engine. Right now we are only running stock RX4 engine and have not port/polished the heads yet, there have been a upgrade to the throttle body recently by one owner going 46mm throttle body from 40mm

Thanks to Bombay for getting me the Yoshimura carbon fiber cans for both my bikes.


We did upgrade the front axle with a 15mm axle and bearing setup

I've been riding all around the Bay Area with my stock 2020 Benelli TNT 135 before I went transplant and for me the stock sprocket setup was a dog and I used GearingCommander.com to get the best selection sprocket setup and found that 17/32T was the best setup. Don't believe anyone that says their Benelli TNT went faster with a 14T front sprocket, will never happen. Good luck on your choice and if you do get one and need help getting parts I know the links to get them either ebay or Steady garage.

I bought a brand new Z125 last year for 2707 OTD. That included everything....tax, title, tags and the works. It isn't made in China...

If I want to go fast, I have other options.
...now the internet is telling me they are made everywhere EXCEPT China, even Michigan...(might be better off with one from China, eh)...I don't know who is right...!!!... (grin)

...comprehensive insurance was $211.84 per year...I don't even know where my gear is...

...I don't know if this bike has a red frame or a black frame but at least it is not that sickly green that looks like Kaw puke...

...the pretty red one sold at closing time last night...there was only one left...

...the used one came in last night and had not been advritised yet...I just lucked into that...I doubt it would have lasted the day...

...those outlaws are gearing up...!!!...

...I'm not crying aboot this yet...waiting on DMV now...it's a done deal...

...I do wish I'd just kept the SV 650...at least I will be less likely to develop delusions of grandure here...

...I would get to passing everything I saw on that dog...that never happened on the Zuma...

...the TnT 135 is like a Zuma dominant hybrid...

Black is my second favorite color esp if the frame is also black. My friend said his had red brake calipers front and back so he bought my black ones that came off my Green Benelli so he can have all black Benelli, he also bought my UK blackwidow exhaust system with the $49 Amazon muffler and he also bought my Steady Garage 155cc kit with the DCR cam for his Black Benelli.

Benelli stock exhaust removed, saves 6-7 lbs
64450

blackwidow exhaust with Amazon $49 muffler
64453

16/32T sprocket, and I went up 17T which gave me a higher top speed
64451


Make sure your ride the Benelli first to get a baseline feel of what the HP is like and slowly add or remove parts, first thing I would do is get rid of the OEM exhaust system and get a UK Blackwidow exhaust system with the Amazon muffler, you'll save about 6-7 lbs of weight, than second thing I would do is replace the front sprocket with a 16 or 17T it will give you better top end speed. The third thing I would do is check your speedo reading with a iphone GPS reading to see how much off the speedo is and if it is off by 7mph do a Kraken speedo adjustment.

Congrats on your purchase

Check Kraken's Garage videos on youtube he has lots of info on the Benelli and how to do oil change and valve adjustment and I think he might live on your side of the country.

...there are a lot of factors that went into this move...for one thing I didn't want a "real" bike so much as a "toy" one...I was eyeballing those Groms all along...

...hopefully the novelty will not wear off but I really enjoyed the Scooter Summer with BV's Zuma...

...the TnT will do the one thing I wanted the Zuma to do that it could not...go 20mph faster...

...I would not mind having an SV 650 too but I wanted to try this urban outlaw machine...

...too many people with great bikes and big bucks are buying them to just have fun with to ignore them as "toys"...

...I am kinda thinkin' that's the point...it will spend most of the time parked whatever it is...so...there is that...

...try to say " mighty mini moto motorcycle club" or "MMM MC"" out loud...you will sound like you have a speech impediment...

...that could be preferred but not required for membership...

...I got the truck running and am heading over to storage to look for stuff I do not want to buy again...hopefully the gear I seek is near the surface...

...maybe I will pick up the Benelli today...it is a matter of getting stuff through DMV...sure glad I am not going there...

...methinks I can hide it on the back of the truck for a while....LoLoL...

A guy that works here bought a bike last summer, made a plate out of cardboard and wrote "COVID" on it. Rode it around like that all summer. Never got stopped.... You could try it.
