Hi I'm after a new bike. I've only had one and just sold it: a yamaha ttr250. I thought I'd made up my mind and was going for a triple 900 but was searching eBay and saw some cool Italian bikes. Does anyone here know much about the Benelli 354 or 504? I don't really like the 654 styling so much. I've read that you can't pull the skin off a pud with these bikes but its all relative isn't it? My TTR had 19hp and I was wringing its nuts at 65mph. It only weighed about 130kg though. I'm really thinking of going for the Benelli but I'm not sure as it seems you can't get a workshop manual either. I don't speak/read Italian. Im not one of those guys that can just get by without one. I travel to work through the countryside on a-roads and need to be able to hold sixty-five/seventy mph with ease as the cars make your life an effing misery if you can't. Strong headwinds with the TTR and I was in trouble . By the way, its the Sport model I want. I think the 504 is about 50hp but weighs in over 200kg all in. The 354 is around 38 hp or something and similar weight. Any owners on here?
