Founded by the six Benelli brothers in 1911, in the seaside city of Pesaro, Italy, the original Benelli factory is now the Benelli Museum, still fully owned by the brand. Originally conceived as a brand of passion, Benelli soon went racing with youngest brother Antonio “Tonino” quickly achieving many victories. Racing in Italy evolved into racing internationally, with Benelli earning two GP world championships. Every year Benelli and the city of Pesaro celebrate Benelli Week, a tradition that began 13 years ago at the company’s 100th anniversary in 2011.

Keeway Group, the corporate manager of the Benelli brand, also has other brands to provide dealers a robust array of two-wheeled vehicles. Keeway’s growing complementary line of scooters and small-displacement motorcycles will also be offered in the U.S. market, at a later date in 2024.
