Benelli is back! After years without U.S. distribution, Qianjiang (QJ), the parent company of Benelli and SSR Motorsports, signed an official distribution agreement in 2015, and is now delivering 2017 Benelli TNT300 and TNT600 motorcycles to authorized Benelli dealers. The 2016 Benelli Zafferano 250 scooter is also available.

Benelli has a rich history of manufacturing motorcycles. In 1911, six brothers from Pesaro, Italy, started a motorcycle repair and parts manufacturing business in what would become known as the “Benelli Garage.” In 1921, the brothers manufactured their first motorcycle. This motorcycle started the successful racing history Benelli has enjoyed over the years. Legendary riders like Ambrosini, Grosselli, Campanelli, Provini, Pasolini, Villa plus Saarinen, Hailwood and Carruthers all helped to provide Benelli with racing victories.

Today, Benelli is part of the QJ Group. Qianjiang (QJ) manufactures over 1.5 million motorcycles and scooters, plus an additional 2 million motors per year, in Wenling, China. QJ distributes ATV’s, electric bicycles, lawnmowers, golf carts, generators, pumps, and other lawn and garden equipment worldwide. Since 2002, SSR Motorsports has been a major distributor and manufacturer of pit bikes, dirt bikes, UTV’s, scooters and street bikes best known for providing “quality products at an affordable price.”
