Italian motorcycle manufacturer Benelli has just launched the Leoncino 250. The motorcycle is the younger sibling of the Benelli Leoncino 500 that was launched a couple of months ago. The Leoncino 250 can be booked online or at a Benelli dealer for a refundable amount of Rs 6,000.
The company says that the Benelli Leoncino 250 is an expression of style that combines tradition and innovation. The motorcycle is crafted for in-city use and for long distance riding as well.
The company also feels that the Leoncino 250 is a classic motorcycle that has been redesigned with modern elements. The launch of the 250 marks Benelli's entry in to the affordable performance motorcycle segment in the country.
The all new Benelli Leoncino 250 is powered by a 249cc single-cylinder, four stroke, liquid-cooled engine that features a double overhead camshaft. The engine has four valves per cylinder, comes with electronic fuel injection, and a 37mm throttle body.
The engine produces 25.4bhp of power and 21Nm of torque. It comes mated to a six-speed transmission.
The just-about-launched Benelli Leoncino 250 features a steel tube trellis frame and a blacked-out engine and radiator. The motorcycle features a large black and silver exhaust muffler, a single-piece seat, and a fully digital instrument console.
Just like the Leoncino 500, the all new 250cc offering from Benelli features the signature laser-cut Lion on the front fender.
The Benelli Leoncino 250 features a 41mm upside-down fork at the front and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear. The motorcycle is equipped 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends, shod in a 110/70-R17 tyre at the front and a 150/60-R17 tyre at the rear.
Anchoring duties are handled by a 280mm floating disc with a four-piston caliper at the front, and a 240mm disc with a single-piston floating caliper at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is offered as a standard. The Benelli Leoncino 250 is available in four colours - Brown, Grey, Red, and White.
The all new Benelli Leoncino is priced at Rs 2.50 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Thoughts About The Leoncino 250
This is ideally what Benelli should have launched first, and priced the motorcycle under the 2.25 lakh mark. That would have help capture the quarter-litre class market that is currently dominated by Honda. We understand that there is a need to pay a premium for an Italian name, but not in a market where the consumer is more concerned about quantity over quality.
Having said that, well, the motorcycle looks fantastic and we hope the model does well for Benelli.
