Benellibegan its fresh innings in the Indian market with a new alliance with Hyderabad based Adishwar Auto (Mahavir Group). Benelli introduced two new motorcycles under this alliance, the TRK siblings. TRK 502 and TRK 502X were introduced at an introductory price of Rs. 5 lakh and Rs. 5.4 lakh. The TRK siblings were introduced to leverage the evolving middleweight adventure-tourer segment of the Indian market.
Benelli also introduced an introductory gift voucher worth Rs. 10,000 for the customers to buy accessories and apparels. Now, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has hiked prices of both the adventure tourers by Rs. 10,000. Also, the introductory gift voucher is not available and the customers have to spend more bucks to buy accessories or merchandise. The Benelli TRK 502 is a road-based adventure tourer and the Benelli TRK 502X is the more off-road friendly version of the two.
Both the motorcycles are powered by the same liquid-cooled, parallel twin, 499.6 cc, DOHC engine. The engine is capable of churning out 47.5 bhp of max power and 46 Nm of max torque. It comes equipped with a 6-speed gearbox and the engine sits in a steel trellis frame. The fuel capacity of both the motorcycles is 20-litre, keeping in mind the touring character of the machines.
The TRK siblings also share suspension and brake setup, but the TRK 502X runs on 19-inch wheel at the front and 17 inchers at the rear shod with the premium Metzeler rubber. The seat height of the TRK 502X is 840 mm and it has a ground clearance of 220 mm. On the other hand, the TRK 502 runs on 17 inchers at both front and back shod with Pirelli tyres. It gets a seat height of 800 mm and 190 mm of ground clearance. The current price of the Benelli TRK 502 and TRK 502X now stands at Rs. 5.1 lakh and Rs. 5.5 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom), respectively.
