Benelli Leoncino 500 BS6 launched, Rs. 20,000 Cheaper Than BS4 Variant

Benelli has launched the BS6 model the Leoncino 500 in India. The motorcycle is priced at Rs. 4.59 lakh (ex-showroom), Rs. 20,000 cheaper than its BS4 counterpart.

The design elements, visual components, and cycle parts of the Leoncino 500 have remained untouched.

The BS6 offering carries over the neoclassical styling with sharp contours like the circular headlamp, narrow seat and the tidy tail section. The only change it has received is the BS6 compliant engine.

The BS4-BS6 transition has been consistent with the performance numbers remaining unchanged. This parallel-twin, 500cc, liquid-cooled engine produces 46.8 Bhp at 8,500 RPM and 46 Nm at 6,000 RPM breathing out of a dual-barrel exhaust.

The Leoncino 500 offers upright riding ergonomics with a high-set handlebar, stiff seat, and slightly rear-set footpegs. A 50mm inverted forks at the front and a Hydraulic Monoshock (Rebound & Preload adjustable) at the back, offers rugged suspension.

The Italian motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels equipped with dual 320mm disc at the front and a 260mm disc at the rear. The motorcycle sports a 12.7-litre fuel tank with a kerb weight of 207 kg. (TT)
