Power on the Benelli Imperiale 400 BS6 comes from the same 374 cc single-cylinder engine with fuel injection. Power figures remain the same from the updated motor with the 20.7 bhp that now arrives at 6,000 rpm (previously 5,500 rpm), while peak torque of 29 Nm kicks in early at 3,500 rpm, as opposed to the earlier 4,500 rpm on the BS4 model. The 6-speed gearbox has been carried over on the updated model.
Visually, nothing changes on the Benelli Imperiale 400. The bike continues to sport the modern-classic design language with the round headlamp, tear-drop fuel tank, dual seat, and an upright handlebar. The bike rides on a 19-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels, while suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and dual shock absorbers at the rear. The Imperiale 400 comes with disc brakes at either end and dual-channel ABS.
