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.
