With a top speed of only 90mph, it wasn't the fasted bike around, but it made up for this by being beautifully designed & suprisingly lightweight. Although it was somewhat expensive for its time!

1978 Benelli 750Sei / 1983 Benelli 900Sei

Info.

Benelli 750Sei

Benelli 900Sei

 

Engine Sizes: 750cc & 906cc

Year First Manufactured:

750Sei - 1974

900Sei -

Other Info:

The 750 model was the first on the market with a transverse mounted six cylinder engine & distinctive a six pipe exhaust system.

It was an excellent machine but did not have the outright performance of the similar size Japanese machines of the time, although it was an extremely comfortable bike & ideal for long road jouneys.

.................................................................

The 900Sei was introduced in 1978, it still had a transverse six cylinder engine, but now uprated to 900cc it had a power output of 80hp at 8600rpm.

This model was designed to be sleeker with a small windshield & a different fuel tank, seat & three into one exhaust pipes. Outright performance was not in the league of similar Japanese models, but what it lacked in that respect it made up for in roadholding & its phenominal braking capacity.
