The Benelli Imperiale 400 is the company's first BS6 compliant model in the country and was launched in July 2020. It is about ₹ 20,000 more expensive than the BS4 model. The motorcycle gets the same 374 cc single-cylinder engine which is fuel injected. Power figures remain the same too. The maximum power of 20.7 bhp now arrives at 6,000 rpm, previously 5,500 rpm. The 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 stays the same on the updated model.
In terms of design, the motorcycle stays the same, keeping its old-school retro look intact with the round headlamp, tear-drop fuel tank, dual seat and an upright handlebar. The motorcycle rides on a 19-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheels, which are spoked. The 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 along with dual-channel ABS.
The BS6 Imperiale 400 goes up against the Royal Enfield Classic 350 - which is priced at ₹ 1.67 lakh and the Jawa dual-channel ABS model, which costs ₹ 1.82 lakh (ex-showroom).
