The Chinese owned Italian bike maker, Benelli has been working on quite a few interesting bikes for the developing markets such as ours. The company has also been fairly successful in selling a good number of bikes in the Indian market. It showcased new products like the 752S, TRK 251, 302S and 402S at 2017 EICMA. And now one of its upcoming bikes, the Leoncino has been sped testing on the Indian roads. The reports suggest that the bike was spied testing near the ARAI facility in Pune and we have no reason to not believe it. As seen from the spied photograph, the bike can also be seen sporting a saree guard which is important for homologation in Indian market.  

As per reports, the bike will run on a 500cc twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine that produces 48bhp at 8500rpm and 46Nm of torque at 6000rpm. It is also the same engine as seen on the Benelli’s upcoming TRK 502 adventure bike but the same can be tuned as per Leoncino’s riding character delivering strong mid-range grunt. The bike can be seen equipped with fat USD front forks and single monoshock suspension at the rear. It will also be offered with ABS as a standard safety feature. You can expect the same to be launched in the Indian market by Q2 next year.

Stay tuned for full updates.
