For sale is this Ultimate one off Benelli 900 six cylinder cafe race/super bike, (ABSOLUTELY BRAND NEW!) If you are a individualist this bike has got to be for you !! it really is something very special that nobody else has or will ever have as the constructors have now retired and the asking price is way way below the actual build cost, plus its brand new having only covered 22 test miles from new ! This bike is not some done up old thing or made from spare parts the professional constructors (Cotini Racing) took a brand new unregistered (new old stock) Benelli 900 SEI striped it of its complete front end plus front and rear suspension, wheels,brakes, fuel tank,mudguards and all bodywork.They then set to work replacing them with all brand new upside down Ohlins, Brembo brakes, leavers and aeroquip hoses, full mirror polished three spoke alloy wheels, a stunning custom made stainless 6 pipe exhaust which sounds awesome,rear sets,hydraulic clutch conversion, HD drive chain and sprocket conversion, Led rev counter and speedo, mudguards,custom fuel tank,and bodywork with half fairing and painted in this lovely two tone show standard paint job. As intended the bike looks and rides like a factory built bike and as it has only covered 22 test miles it still needs running in and as you would expect the bike is mint unmarked on the button ready for immediate use. The bike is UK registered (on SORN) with V5 present showing the one private collector owner and the constructors name This bike must be seen and more importantly heard to realize just how special it is. The Benelli Sei 900 got its start as the Benelli Sei 750 ("Sei" is Italian for “six”), which was first unveiled in the fall of 1972 and was the first production 6-cylinder motorcycle in the world. Delays and setbacks put the launch off until 1974, and the new model carried an MSRP of $3,995. That’s roughly $17,500 in today’s money, but Italian cars and cycles weren’t — and still aren’t — purchased for their bargain price tag. While the design of the engine on the Benelli Sei 750 closely mimicked Honda’s CB500, its two extra pots set it apart from everything else. The inline-six displaced 747cc and was fed by three 29mm Dell’Orto carbs, as the obstacle of synchronizing six units pushed the designers to this more friendly arrangement. A 5-speed gearbox sent the 75hp to the rear wheel via a single drive chain. A 6-into-6 exhaust was unique, and the sound emanating from the chrome tips was something else. A tubular steel frame carried the load, and with a half-tank of fuel the Benelli Sei 750 tipped the scales at just over 500 pounds. Styling was subdued once you got past the exhaust, with a saddle that was fairly thin and square compared to some of the more sumptuous pillions on the Japanese units. A pair of disc brakes up front and a drum at the rear did a decent job of slowing the Sei. Contemporary reviews complained of poor gauges and switchgear, although some quirkiness was to be expected on an Italian bike. After a few years of middling sales, the Sei 750 was upgraded for 1979 to 906cc and the exhaust was pared back to a 6-into-2 system. The Benelli Sei 900 gained little more than five ponies over the Sei 750. A unique duplex drive chain was added, wire wheels were replaced with gold-colored Campagnolo rims and a rear disc brake replaced the former drum unit. Read how the Benelli Sei 900 performed in our 6-Cylinder Motorcycle Shootout The Benelli Sei 900 also gained a sidestand, along with a safety feature requiring the stand be in the “up” position before the starter would engage. The 1983 models sold for $5,400, and compared to the last year 1982 Kawasaki KZ1300, which listed at $6,260, it should have seemed like a bargain for a 6-cylinder motorcycle. Built and sold in small numbers, it stayed in production until 1987. Just Awesome!
