Benelli India has released a short teaser video of an upcoming cruiser motorcycle. From the looks of it, the motorcycle seems to be the Benelli 502C. And yes, it does bear an uncanny resemblance to a Ducati Diavel. Be it the short, stubby seat, exposed trellis frame, petal discs up front, the longish fuel tank and even the shape of the headlight! Nonetheless, we believe the Ducati Diavel. we mean the Benelli 502C is likely to have a lot of takers in India. Benelli India will begin taking pre-bookings tomorrow and the prices for the motorcycle will be announced towards the end of the month. And yes, Benelli India is positioning it as a power cruiser, just like the Diavel.
The 502C gets the same BS6 compliant engine as the Leoncino 500, which is a 500 cc parallel-twin motor, making 46.8 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 46 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and the motorcycle gets a massive 21.5-litre fuel tank, which ought to give it a good riding range. The front end gets 41 mm USDs while the rear gets a monoshock. The bike features twin 280 mm discs upfront and a single 240 mm disc at the rear. ABS comes as a standard fitment. The motorcycle is likely to be priced around Rs. 5 lakh and once launched in India.
The motorcycle is likely to have features like full LED lighting, a TFT instrument console and front footpegs which are adjustable. Benelli has had a quiet 2021 so far, having launched just the BS6 compliant models of the Imperiale 400 along with the Leoncino 500 and the TRK adventure bike range. This will be Benelli's first all-new model launch in India for 2021. While the bike doesn't have a direct rival yet, it is likely to go up against the Honda Rebel 500, which is slated for an India launch this year. Till then, it could go up against the Kawasaki Vulcan S.
