While the Leoncino 500 is available in three different variants in international markets, we expect that Benelli will offer the Standard variant in India. Depending on how the motorcycle performs, the company may consider adding the Trail and Sport variants to the line up.

This scrambler styled motorcycle will feature the same engine that is on the new TRK adventure tourers. The 500cc parallel-twin engine produces 47.5bhp of peak power and 46Nm of torque.

The engine comes mated to a six-speed transmission. ABS will be on offer as a standard, and braking duties will be handled by dual discs in the front, and one at the rear. The Benelli Leoncino 500 will feature upside-down forks at the front, and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear.

The Standard variant will arrive with the 13.5-litre fuel tank. Being a more road-biased model, the motorcycle is likely to feature 17-inch alloy wheels at the both ends.

The Leoncino 500 is expected to be positioned just below the TRK 502, so we expect the motorcycle to be priced at roughly Rs 4.75 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Having said that, we still have to wait for an official statement about pricing from Benelli.

Thoughts About The Benelli Leoncino 500

We think it is about time that Benelli expanded their offerings in the country. Sure, they had a bad experience the first time around, but their second play seems to be doing well. Time to capitalize and make the best of it.

We think the motorcycle looks rather compact, meaning it can be flicked around easily. The Leoncino 500 also looks ready to take on whatever is in front of it; on tarmac of course. Stay tuned for more about the motorcycle.
