Benelli Keeway Generic 600 Rk6/bn600

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen a thread about this bike yet. Not a bad looking bike. It's said to be based on the early 2000's R6. 88HP 600cc inline 4. I have seen the price as 254,00B and 28X,XXXB. I tried calling 2 different numbers for Keeway dealers but neither work. If it's 60k cheaper than the Versys, that might be enough to temp more than a few. Horrible name though. "Generic" must translate into something nice in Chinese.

From thier main English language site which calls it the BN600: http://www.benelli.com/eng/Catalog/Motorcycles/Bikes2013/BN-600/Default-cd-776.aspx

ENGINE
4 cylinders in line, 4-stroke, liquid cooled , 4 valves for cylinder double overhead camshaft

RATED OUTPUT
60 kW (82 cv) @ 11500 rpm MAX. TORQUE
52 Nm (5,3 kgm) @ 10500 rpm
Talent, ambition, sporting appeal. Here is the new Benelli 600cc: BN 600, the long awaited four-cylinder bike of the Pesaro-firm arrives to Italy with the aim to satisfy the wishes of the most demanding riders who also pay attention to price.

BN 600 is not the same old 600. The heart of the BN 600 is its innovative inline four-cylinder 4 stroke engine, liquid cooled, double overhead camshaft and 4 valves for each cylinder. The engine, with electronic injection and four ø 38 mm throttle bodies, delivers a power of 82 hp (60 kW) @ 11.500 rpm and max. torque of 52 Nm @ 10.500 rpm. Wet sump lubrication, wet clutch, 6 speeds gearbox and final chain drive. A successful recipe conceived and developed meticulously over the years to get a smooth and compact engine to entertain even the less skilled riders.

Rough edges, energetic and slender, BN 600 boasts essential, extremely aggressive features. The strong point of this new Benelli is the comfortable riding position, which makes handling easy and agile, allowing the racer to focus entirely on sheer enjoyment. The sound of BN 600 is unmistakably unique, genuine Benelli.

The naked frame is made of an upfront steel trestle and an aluminium structure at the rear suspension link, a guarantee of reliability under all circumstances. Suspension system is made of an upside-down front fork ø 50mm and a rear aluminium alloy swingarm with rear shock absorber in extension hydraulic and spring preload adjustment to tackle uneven pavements with total ease.

Top quality braking system with front ø 320 mm twin floating disk and radial callipers and rear ø 240 mm single disk with double piston calliper. Aluminium alloy 17’’ rims with 120/70 and 180/55 tyres, which ensure safety even in the most difficult situations, and 15L fuel tank.

BN 600 is presented in the colours white, black, orange and grey and will be available starting by mid-2013 at a really competitive price.

There are some good Thai reports out already

I say good meaning they seem to voice an opinion on both good & bad.
Some things they like & some things they say are a bit cheaply done.
Also the exhaust is running a bit hot as setup

I saw a pic of one they changed already to a down exhaust exit

Here is the review & it is in Thai but line by line you can figure it out

or use a translator to get close

Also lots of good pictures of various parts/groups

nice bike but I like the one with the fairings on the side better

there is a thread running here : https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/601716-benelli-tnt-600-inline-four/page-9?hl=%2Bbenelli#entry6241113

^ Ah ok. Somehow I missed that other thread. Probably because it's not called the TNT 600 here, actually neither is it called that in the UK.

the problem is, nobody knows what to call these bikes as clearly, they have a branding/modelling crisis!

I have seen the Benelli modified to the moon by K speed as it is siting in front of their shop, looks better than teh stock still do not trust anything Chinese!

For B60k less, you can get the Honda CBR500 or a CB500X/F. I don't see a market for this.

But those are a twin... I'd rather pay 60k more and have a real engine , 4-cylinder all the way!

Shame this bike is Chinese.

Honda happens to have the lion's share of the market. Doesn't mean their range is the best....or worse!

I'm watching the Kawasaki episode of 'Twist the Throttle' as I type this- they're showing how they build bikes at the factory in Japan- it looks like they know what they're doing (it's very impressive, actually).
