by R. M. Clarke
A fourteen year period from 1974 to 1988 saw the design and creation of a number of modern four cylinder models from Benelli. First there was a 500 Quattro, which in turn spawned the 500LS and went on to be upgraded in 1979 to the 504 Sport.
Benelli went on to expand its range to include models of both higher and lower capacities. They included the 350RS, 354 and 354 Sport models, and on the larger side were the 654T and the 654 Sport.
Benelli then surprised the world with their amazing 254 road bike. As most test reports will confirm the handling and performance is what you would expect from an Italian bike with a ‘pedigree’.
The story of the Benelli Fours is told through contemporary and classic articles. Included are road, comparison and track tests, detailed performance data, technical features, new model introductions plus an informative 'bike profile' and full specifications.
Reported on are: 500 Quattro, 250/4, 254, 350 RS, 504 and Sports, 354 and Sport plus the 654.
