Murdercycles! Rating 200 2009 Motorcycles By Safety - Benelli

  Benelli TnT 899 is designed with an engine configured as a 899 cc, liquid cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The engine has a bore and stroke measuring 88 mm x 49.2 mm, which results in a compression ratio of 12.5:1. The engine generates a strong 118 horsepower. When this maximum power generation is divided by the vehicle's dry weight in kilograms of 199, which equates to 437.8 pounds, we can now calculate the ratio of pounds per horsepower, a fairly standard calculation in the motor vehicle world which will allow you to determine the motorcycle's actual performance on the street. In the case of this bike, its power to weight ratio is 3.71. Therefore, this motorcycle has earned a Murdercycle Rating of "C": EXCESSIVE which means that it should only be operated on a racetrack by at least amateur racers who already have gained a measure of experience, and never on a public highway.

Benelli TnT 899 S bears an engine which is an 899 cc, liquid cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The motor has a bore and stroke of 88 mm x 49.2 mm, which gives the engine a compression ratio of 12.5:1. The engine is rated for a maximum of 118 horsepower. When that total amount of power at maximum levels is divided by the motorcycle's dry weight in kilograms of 199, which equals 437.8 pounds, it is now possible to determine the ratio of pounds per horsepower, which is a good way to estimate the motorcycle's actual performance in everyday use. This bike's power to weight ratio is 3.71. This motorcycle is thereby generating a power to weight ratio which gives it a Murdercycle Rating of "C": EXCESSIVE which means that it should only be operated on a racetrack by at least amateur racers who already have gained a measure of experience, and never on a public highway.

Benelli TnT Cafe Racer has an engine that is set up as an 1131 cc, liquid cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The engine is designed with a bore and stroke of 88 mm x 62 mm, and has a compression ratio of 11.9:1. The motor powers the rear wheel with a total of 127 horsepower. When this output is compared against the motorcycle's weight in kilograms of 199, which converts out to 437.8 pounds, the calculation of pounds per horsepower is now possible: a measurement that is generally utilized to determine the motorcycle's overall performance. In this case, the power to weight ratio is 3.45. Therefore, it can be concluded that this bike has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

Benelli TnT Sport Evo is designed around an engine that is an 1130 cc, liquid cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The motor is engineered with a bore and stroke configuration of 88 mm x 62 mm, providing a compression ratio of 11.5:1. The engine is able to generate a total of 137 horsepower. When this output is calculated to the bike's dry weight in kilograms of 199, a mass that equals 437.8 pounds, the pounds per horsepower can now be precisely measured in a determination which is a very accurate reflection of this particular motorcycle's total performance on the street or track. In the case of this bike, the power to weight ratio is 3.2. This final analysis shows that this motorcycle has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

Benelli TnT Titanium is a motorcycle that has an engine which is an 1130 cc, liquid cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The motor's bore and stroke is 88 mm x 62 mm, equating to a compression ratio of 11.9:1. The powerplant creates a total of 137 horsepower. When this power at the rear wheel is taken into consideration alongside the dry weight in kilograms of 193, a weight that is equivalent to 424.6 pounds, the actual ratio of this motorcycle's actual performance while being ridden can be determined with a high degree of accuracy. The pounds per horsepower determines what the power to weight ratio is, and in this bike's case, that figure is 3.1. This figure means that this motorcycle has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

Benelli Tornado Tre 1130 has an engine that is an 1130 cc, water cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The engine features a bore and stroke of 88 mm x 62 mm, which results in a compression ratio of 13:1. The engine outputs a maximum of 161 horsepower. When this amount of horses is balanced with the dry weight in kilograms of 199, a total dry weight which is equal to 437.8 pounds, the calculation can now be executed which shows the power to weight ratio as expressed as pounds of the motorcycle's dry weight which is driven by each horsepower. This bike's pounds per horsepower result is 2.72. With that number finally determined, we can now conclude that this bike has a Murdercycle Rating of "B": HIGH-DANGER which means that no one other than a motorcycle racer with at least a year or so of experience should ride it, and then only on a race or test track.

Benelli Tre-K 1130 features a motor engineered as a 1130 cc, water cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The engine has a bore and stroke measuring 88 mm x 62 mm, which gives the engine a compression ratio of 11.9:1. The engine cranks out a total of 123 horsepower. If you take that amount of power and equate it with the motorcycle's dry weight in kilograms of 205, which in American units converts out to be 451 pounds, we end up with a calculation of pounds per horsepower, which is an industry standard manner of determining the overall real world power of the vehicle. In this motorcycle's case, the power to weight ratio is 3.67. The final result is that this motorcycle has a Murdercycle Rating of "C": EXCESSIVE which means that it should only be operated on a racetrack by at least amateur racers who already have gained a measure of experience, and never on a public highway.

Benelli Tre-K 1130 Amazonas is designed with an engine configured as a 1131 cc, water cooled, 3 - cylinders in line. The motor has a bore and stroke of 88 mm x 62 mm, and has a compression ratio of 11.9:1. The engine generates a strong 123 horsepower. A simple calculation dividing that power to the total dry weight in kilograms of 208, which in Imperial measure equals 457.6 pounds, we can now calculate the ratio of pounds per horsepower, a fairly standard calculation in the motor vehicle world which will allow you to determine the motorcycle's actual performance on the street. In the case of this bike, its power to weight ratio is 3.72. Those figures provide a Murdercycle Rating of "C": EXCESSIVE which means that it should only be operated on a racetrack by at least amateur racers who already have gained a measure of experience, and never on a public highway.
