Benelli Latest Models: RK 251, 302S and 752S
Benelli Latest Models: In addition to this Royal Enfield-rivalling Imperiale 400 and the Ducati xDiavel-inspired Benelli 402S, the Italian company has three bikes on display at EICMA.
The smallest concerning capacity is the TRK251. This is an adventure bike styled along the lines of the bigger TRK 502 which is slated for launch in India. The TRK 251 runs a metal trellis frame and claims a dry weight of 153kg. Tyre size is 150/60 -17 in the rear and exactly the same dimension as the TNT25 nude — 110/70 -17 up front. The motor is much like the one from the TNT25 but appears to make around 2hp less. The engine is Euro-IV compliant as well.
The bike is your 302S. This is a more stylish version of the present TNT300. It sports a modern-looking headlamp using a split part and LED DRLs along the side. The new bike gets cleaner and minimal bodywork across the sides but it seems muscular and handsome. The tail gets split grab handles and is also sleek. Also new is an angular digital instrument cluster.
The 302S continues with the identical steel trellis frame and the engine makes 38hp and 25.8Nm. However, weight has gone up and is at an enormous 206kg. We anticipate the 302S to substitute the TNT300 in India sometime 2018.
The bicycle appears to be the Benelli on screen at EICMA. The 752S is a naked bike that runs a brand-new parallel twin motor that is 754cc. Torque is considerably higher and also produced early on in the rev range, although electricity is lower from the cylinder engine around the TNT600i. Benelli says that the 752S was tuned for a sound.
The 752S gets 50mm forks and utilizes a steel trellis frame that is fresh. These give the bike a streetfighter look, along with the LED headlamp that is oval. Bodywork is minimal, with a big fuel tank and a tail section that is slender. A 180 section rear tyre that is fat only adds to the appearance. Braking is handled by twin discs bitten by calipers. The wheels have their work cut out provided the hefty 220kg weight of this bike.
The 752S is also being considered for India but is very likely to arrive in 2018. For the time being, the focus of the company is based on the releases of the Leoncino and this TRK 502. Speaking of this Leoncino scrambler, Benelli also showed off a smaller Leoncino with a 250cc motor.
