Here’s something a little different and obscure. The Benelli BN 600 R is the boutique manufacturer’s answer to bikes like the Triumph Street Triple and MV Agusta Brutale 675. Built for those who love the naked middleweight category, I’d love to throw one of these around some twisty roads and maybe even a trackday. Those forks look nice and beefy, the brakes authoritative, and that underseat exhaust, while so 2008, still is appealing to me. Powered by a 600cc inline-Four, the screamer of an engine probably likes to rev high and one of these days I hope I get the chance to find out.
