God, I hope not. Although it does bring to mind a glazed donut...

Default The definition of "Ugly Motorcycle"

The TNT is destined to go down in history as one of the ugliest motorcycles ever built. And it came from Italy??? Blasphemy! LOL!!! More like Transylvania.



But I guess for the "Transformer" generation it might hold some limited appeal.

Default Re: Digital Hacksaw to the rescue

I agree, its a quick and dirty clone job, but keep in mind that the boys at Benelli probably took weeks to figure out how to put a mud flap/turn signal thingamajig on the bike in order to meet Euro regulations and I only spent 5 minutes sending it to "ugly things only a mother could love" heaven.



If you want it done right, send the many, many Euros it costs to buy one, I'll pick it up at my looking Benelli shop down the road, do a proper removal job, take a nice high quality picture and post it for your viewing pleasure. Hell, I'll even pitch in and buy the hacksaw myself.



As for the turn signals, I'd have to bring them back from heaven and stick them on the end of the passenger foot pegs so as not to call too much attention from the local Spanish police - although given how lax they are concerning these types of things, I don´t think any of them would notice if they weren´t there in the first place.

You inspired me to check out the video archive. Lots of cool stuff. MO you need to give us more videos. I liked all of it even the human interest stories like the chick doing burnouts. I have been reading this site since circa 95 (I remember the RZ500 story when it was the head liner), and a big portion of it's beauty is how raw it was. Don't get me wrong the site is always improving, but don't forget to include the raw stuff. Corperate America sucks, veer away from there example/guide lines.

One word describes it: fugly. Looks OK coming or going, from the side...ow! Still not as bad as the Tuono though, at least you can see the motor.

Jeez, I was just foolin' about the clone job. I couldn't even muster up the strength to fire up my Mac and do it myself. So, thanks again.



Passenger footpegs, huh? Now that is an interesting idea. Wonder if that would pass muster with the authorities. Also wonder what the practical implications would be. But a nice thought. Has anybody done that?



Part of good design is integrating the necessary cosmetic evils in a clean, effective way. I don't mind it so much when Kawasaki/Suzuki/Honda/Yamaha takes the easy way out, but for the kind of coin you've got to spend for an Italian exotic, I expect a little more. You don't come up with a design and then say "okay, now we've got to stick the turn signals somewhere."



And you ain't getting any of my euros...even if I had any.

Yeah I agree, that test is simply a joke. I felt like I hadn't read anything at all afterward. There's nothing challenging about saying every bike is great and here's our favorite, but they're all great, so they're not bad, they're all great, but if we have to choose, well, they're all great and here's the winner.



Lame as hell.

Yossef always looks like he's tied up in a knot on these bitty-Euro bikes. How tall is he anyway?



Mmm, radiators look cool, actually; methinks there's hope for Honda yet. The left side is a bit too industrial.

Turn signals on the passenger pegs probably wouldn't pass the official inspection, but given that I've seen things a lot worse here in spain, I figure it as good a solution as any.



The biggest problem with the footpeg position is that they are generally not high enough off of the ground (can't be seen by cage drivers). The Benelli pillion pegs seem to be pretty high, so it might actually work with that bike and not get into too much trouble.



By the way, I don't need euros, I'll take whatever currency you've got - my local banker will give me a good exchange rate on just about anything except Iraki dinars.
