The originality of some of the technical solutions has made the Benelli product a point of reference in the motorcycle context of large cylinder bikes.

An important innovation has been implemented in the engine: as on all of the versions of the 2005 year TNT models, engine function can be modified by simply pressing a lighted button on the dash support.

The engine control unit can be switched between free power and controlled power for better control of the motorcycle in poor traction conditions. This also guarantees a decrease in fuel consumption of 10-20% depending on driving style and on the road.

The free power configuration makes it possible to fully enjoy the torque features and motor power, while the controlled power configuration makes it possible to enjoy using the bike easily in the city, even on asphalt with poor traction, either alone or with a passenger, without stress.

An exhaust system composed of 42 mm stainless steel primary manifolds joined by a compensator improves engine performance and enhances the sounds. The "Tre in Uno" (Three-in-one) system converges in a 60 mm pipe which is choked by a butterfly valve for a smoother, higher performance engine.

The Tornado is the only standard motorcycle with the radiator positioned under the saddle which receives air from two dynamic pipes fed by two vertical feed intakes under the directional signals. This solution not only eliminates the accumulation of heat at the centre of the vehicle, but also significantly reduces the front end of the bike.
