Toward the end of the 1960s, the arrival of Japanese manufacturers caused a crisis in the European motorcycle industry. The original Benelli company was heavily involved in the American motorcycle market, selling motorcycles under 350cc through Montgomery Ward. The advent of competition from Japan led Benelli products losing popularity as they were perceived as old fashioned in comparison to Hondas of the era which sported over-head cm engines with electric starters.
Much in the same way as the British motorcycle manufacturers such as Norton, BSA and Triumph were affected in the larger compacity sector. Benelli introduced a series of multis intended to compete with the Japanese triples and fours.
