MCN Reports Benelli Shut Down

I can't find anything else out about this, and the Benelli site is up and working.

England's Motorcycle News is reporting that small Italian manufacturer Benelli (makers of the TNT, for instance) have stopped production and terminated employees as a result of the decision by the Merloni family (controllers of Benelli) to find a buyer for the marque.

Benelli had been resurected by Andrea Merloni in the late 1990s shortly before the stunning three-cylinder Benelli Tornado was displayed to appreciative motorcycle lovers.

I wonder if it because the price is way to high for a 100hp pasta rocket...
