The company was established on 1911 in Pesaro, Italy making them one of the oldest Italian motorcycle brand to date. It all started after Teresa Benelli lost her husband, she invested all the capital of her family to establish a workshop and ensure a stable job for her six sons, Giuseppe, Giovanni, Filippo, Francesco, Domenico and Antonio “Tonino” Benelli.

They started out as only a service garage, where some spare parts for cars and motorcycles were also made. With a much higher ambition the Benelli brothers wanted to pursue in building motorcycles.

In 1919, the first engine was born with a two stroke 75cc applied to a bicycle frame which did not produce satisfying results. It was in the year 1921 as Benelli built its first motorcycle the Velomotore using their own 98 cc engine model.

After their successful first model, the company continued to produce more motorcycles with bigger displacement, racing bikes as well as military motorcycles during the World War I. The company was in heights of its achievement but was overcome during World War II as the factory was destroyed by the Nazis. The Benelli brothers did not lose heart and continued to start all over again.
