At ‘Spa’ the dealers who did my MOT they had the newish Benelli 752s on the showroom floor.

This is a very pretty machine in my view, especially in green. High spec with lots of nice detaills; LED lights, big Brembo discs, 50mm Marssochi forks. The optional crash bungs were of nicely machined alloy. ;) It’s just a shame the specs show it’s so damn heavy given the moderate power on tap. :? But a few years ago some of us would have been impressed with an 80 HP 750 twin. It’s probably just fine for those looking for a respectable gents grand tourer. ;)

Has anyone on here tried one yet? In the videos the road holding and ride seems to be very good. There are some comments about the gearing being highish to give a relaxed feel, but that could be tweaked with 1 or 2 teeth added to the rear sprocket. The most impressive aspect from the videos is the amazing sound from the standard pipe! 8-) Very Italian......even if it is made in China! lOl

Not tried the 725, however I did purchase a TRK 502x two years ago with some assistance from our very own Steve Loxton. I basically got it as I needed something comfortable. The guys I ride with all have bigger bikes, Tiger 1200, Gs 1250, KTM, 1190. The only consession they make for me is keeping below 85 on the motorway. We tend to ride B roads mainly. Yes I need to work a bit harder & plan ahead, but really don't have a problem staying in touch. I've ridden it in all weathers & as with any bike providing you keep it protected it has kept its finish. Anyone who says Chinese bikes are rubbish has a lot to learn. For the price it's one hell of a bike. Handles very well, the engine is a peach, standard equipment is all you could hope for. Downsides, it's a tall & heavy bike for what it is. Would I buy another ? Yes indeed. I'll brake a look at the 750 version when it comes out.

I think there is an 800 version of the TRK soon to be released with the 752 or is it 754cc motor? ;)

They say it’s basically two cylinders from the 1130 triple, but with improved quality control. :yup:

Yes QJ Motors the parent company have already released a 750 version called the SRT. It not sure yet if the Benelli version will just be a re- badged copy or a totally restyled bike.

I calculated that if you upped the 752s rear sprocket size by 2 teeth you would probably see 70mph at 5000 rpm compared to the standard 4800 rpm. That may seem ludicrously buzzy to us Buell riders. lOl

On the plus side you would also see an extra 5% of tractive effort throughout the range of the 752. ;)

Well it passes the time........ lOl
