Benelli Leoncino 800 showcased at Auto Expo 2023. The Leoncino 800 is the larger sibling of the Leoncino currently on sale in India.

The Leoncino is a middleweight sport naked that features a muscular design that makes it a delight to gaze at while its parallel twin engine pushes out more than enough power to keep riders more than satisfied.

2023 Auto Expo: Benelli Leoncino 800 Design & Features

The Benelli Leoncino may get its name from the Italian word for a lion cub but its muscular design means that you'll ignore this little lion at your own peril. Like every other Leoncino model the 800 sports a sculpture of a lion on the front fender. The Leoncino 800 also features a full TFT display that provides all the info a rider will ever need on the go.

The oval-shaped headlight is a full LED unit and sports the Benelli Leoncino logo at its centre. The exposed frame and the sculpted 15-lire fuel tank give the Leoncino 800 a very muscular look which is further enhanced by the chunky exhaust that sits on the right side of the bike. Like the front, the rear also sports a full LED lighting setup.

The Benelli Leioncino 800 is one the best-looking bikes we've seen at this edition of Auto Expo. With its muscular design and powerful parallel twin engine, it looks to be a sure-shot winner for the Italian brand if it decides to bring the naked sport model to India.
