Benelli - a story not so much about the serial much about sports bikes, which are mainly and glorified enterprise. Brand Benelli refers to those few motorcycle names that stick on the motorcycle market, making his debut before the First World War. Company history began largely by accident. Who lived in the town of Pesaro on the Adriatic coast Teresa Benelli Boni was looking for a serious lesson for her six sons: Giuseppe, Giovanni, Francesco, Filippo, Domenico and Antonio. Best of all, it was thought enterprising widow that all six were engaged in the same business.
Sold some family land it acquired machine tools and mechanical manufacturing placed in a separate wing of their own pomestya. Brothers comprehend science work on the machines, and helped them to five is not too versed in the art apprentices. Thus was formed the company "Officine Benelli Mechaniche."

So, if the 250 cc engine capacity models have a 13.5 hp and developed a speed of 120 mph, the 250SS for these parameters were 20 hp and 150 km / ch.K mid-30s the company has evolved enough to become one of the "Big Five" Italian moto makers (with Garelli. Moto Guzzi, Gilera and Bianchi) .Nastoyaschie racing success came with the advent of 172-cubic (62x57 mm) single-cylinder models with overhead camshaft. In 1932 was released her version with double overhead camshaft "square» (60,5x60,5 mm) engine. In 1935 it was replaced by a more powerful 248-cubes (62x78 mm) machine .Till mid 1938 almost every manufacturer of motorcycles in continental Europe, as well as the British company AJS and Vellosette, used to improve the speed boost at the races. Benelli has not gone away, and not only remade its 250-cc single-cylinder machine with double overhead camshaft (1939 Irishman Ted Mellors won the race light motorcycle series TT Isle of Man on a machine without the boost), but also designed the excellent four 60-hp 250 -kubovy motorcycle. Unfortunately, the war intervened, and then the International Federation of Motorsport has banned motorcycles supercharged. They were never able to fully develop their full potential. The war did not spare factories Benelli. Deprived of production capacity, unlike its competitors, for example, Moto Guzzi and Gilera, the company could not quickly return to the market.

Early in 1949 the remaining brothers continued wrestling of his old rival, now Moto Guzzi, on prewar racing cars. In 1948 the team after the completion of the contract with the Moto Guzzi as the first number returned racer Dario Ambrosini.
The crisis of the early 80's an extremely negative impact on the production, which at the end of the decade led to a resale company. The new owners are only interested in the production of smaller 50-cc machines for the domestic market. Improper management strategy led to the sale of another company in the late 90s. This time was created serious base and conditions for the release of new models. First, a new family of modern scooters. And in 1999, it was announced about the intention Benelli release early in the new millennium four superbike. Incidentally, under the name Tornado.
