The rumor, according to MotoRival and other publications, is that Benelli has a deal worked out with MV Agusta for the old F4 engine. MV Agusta isn’t using that engine anymore, and Benelli could use it to launch a new bike. The company teased a grainy image of the four-cylinder engine. It’s hard to make out what exactly the engine is, but you can clearly see its a four-cylinder engine.
Then there’s the image of the bike under a sheet or coak. The shape doesn’t look like a sportbike, which many publications have guessed the bike was. I don’t see it. While it’s really impossible to know, I wonder if it’s a naked bike or even some kind of sport-touring motorcycle.
Regardless of what Benelli has under wraps right now, I’d say its teaser is definitely successful. All eyes will be on the company and its new four-cylinder motorcycle. Let’s hope that the motorcycle that gets revealed isn’t a letdown.
