Revitalised following its take-over in 1971 by Argentine industrialist Alejandro De Tomaso, Benelli launched a range of new four- and six-cylinder sports bikes. With the addition of Moto Guzzi to the De Tomaso empire in 1973, some of these were marketed as Moto Guzzis, much to the dismay of the marque's aficionados. The first of these Honda-inspired machines was the Benelli 500 Quattro of 1974, which despite its Oriental-looking power unit was thoroughly Italian in all other respects, boasting a rigid cradle frame, powerful Grimeca drum brakes and alloy wheel rims. In 350cc form this engine powered the Benelli 350 RS and 350 GTS models plus the Moto Guzzi variants. The engine was enlarged to 400cc in 1975, a front disc brake being adopted at the same time, and in 400 GTS form the model lasted until 1979. This Benelli 350 RS was purchased in 1980 from the importer, Agrati (Sales) Ltd, by the late owner's dealership, Nip On Motorcycles of Chesterfield, Derbyshire but has never been registered for the road. The odometer shows only 4 'push' kilometres. Kept in dry storage for the last 35 years, the machine is offered with DoT Form V55/1, owner's handbook, tool kit and all keys.
