The Benelli 254, originally known as the Benelli 250 Quatro, is a 250 cc (15 cu in) inline four motorcycle produced by the Italian manufacturer Benelli from 1977 to 1984. It was at the time the smallest production four. The 250 models were built to take advantage of the tax concessions on machines under 250cc in Italy and other markets. Designed by engineer Lino Tonti and although a four, was a different design the larger 500/4. Styling was by Paolo Martin. The 250 Quatro was first shown at the 1975 Milan Motorcycle Show, and production started in 1977. Plastic and aluminium were used extensively to keep the weight down to 117 kg (258 lb). Martin's sleek styling included uncluttered handlebars, with the clocks and brake master cylinder mounted in the tank.

Coming from an enthusiast’s private collection of motorcycles, this is an unusual four-cylinder machine and fairly rare. The subject of a previous restoration, it was last heard running a couple of years ago. This machine is offered with a Nova number.
