Description Motobi / Benelli 650 Tornado 1970

Motobi / Benelli 650 Tornado Mk2.


This is an early version and is kick start only, although it
does start easily enough. I understand the Mk 1 had a 4 leading shoe front
brake so this must be the Mk 2.


It was imported from Germany a couple of years ago, and is
dated 1970. It was restored last year. I got this through a dealer as
a part ex on a bike so I do not know the exact history.  I do have all the receipts from the restoration.

V5 is in my name. MOT until December.


Everything works, the bike and runs fine, starts on
the choke but you don’t need it for long. Goes up/down though the 5 gears OK,
handles well. Brakes are good. If you want to get into the Classic scene with something a bit unusual, but reliable and fun to ride theses are ideal.


Switchgear works well (I know these switches are not the
best), fitted with indicators and electronic ignition.


There is no engine casing or fin damage, these bikes are pretty oil tight but there is a slight weep on near side, could be a breather as I cannot see where is is coming from. 


Chrome is good, frame paint is excellent, down pipes are
stainless and clean. The tank paint is good, side panels OK but the white
pinstripe is starting to flake a bit. The rear light support has a worn patch
on top through to undercoat, must have had something rubbing on it.


This has the nice CAV clocks on, and it has the MPH face, it
would have been KPH originally.


Tyres are like new.


The engine is short stroke and very revvy, great noise and handles well - not a large bike, fits my 5ft 8 frame well.


I am selling a few bikes and decided to add this to the
list, it is a fair reserve and if someone wants it more than I do then it will


The bike is located near Brechin in Scotland, just North of
Dundee. If you want more pics of anything in particular, or more details than
just ask, I am on 01356 650321 or 07919 215219 - no calls after 9pm.


I am going to Stafford this weekend and can deliver there or anywhere on M6 or even M1 North of there.

paypal, cash or transferred preferred
