This 6 cylinder banshie sounds awesome , as can be heard in the video and in our opinion its one of the best sounding motorcycles ever created and has to be experienced in person! Recently serviced and fitted with a new battery.
A truly iconic machine that rarely comes to the market in this condition!
History: Despite a racing heritage second to none, Benelli was in trouble by the late 1960s and fell into the clutches of Argentinian industrialist Alejandro De Tomaso in 1971. Under De Tomaso's stewardship the revitalised company was soon grabbing the headlines with a host of new models, none more startling than the 750cc Sei (Six) of 1972, the world's first production six-cylinder motorcycle. The fact that Benelli was able to produce the design so quickly despite lacking previous experience of this type of engine was easily explained: it looked like a Honda CB500 'four' with two extra cylinders, which in effect was just what it was. Even the bore and stroke dimensions were identical to those of the Japanese unit. Production properly began in 1974 but the Benelli was soon overshadowed by Honda's own CBX1000 'six', forcing the Italian company to respond with the 900 Sei in 1980.
