Benelli has done well ever since it made a comeback in the country. The company’s TRK 502 and TRK 502X models have done very well for the company, and with the aim of cashing in on the success, Benelli is getting ready to launch the Leoncino 500 in the Indian market.
The company is gearing up to launch their next product, the Leoncino 500. Benelli announced that this scrambler styled motorcycle was to be it’s next offering for India. The announcement was made during the launch of the new TRK 502.
Rumor has it that the Leoncino 500 will be available at showrooms across the country by August this year. And ahead of its launch, Benelli has been dropping teasers on it’s social media accounts.
While the Leoncino 500 is available in three different variants in international markets, we expect that Benelli will offer the Standard variant in India. Depending on how the motorcycle performs, the company may consider adding the Trail and Sport variants to the line up.
This scrambler styled motorcycle will feature the same engine that is on the new TRK adventure tourers. The 500cc parallel-twin engine produces 47.5bhp of peak power and 46Nm of torque.
The engine comes mated to a six-speed transmission. ABS will be on offer as a standard, and braking duties will be handled by dual discs in the front, and one at the rear. The Benelli Leoncino 500 will feature upside-down forks at the front, and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear.
