Benelli 502C, Leoncino 250 and TRK 251 Make Debut at KLIMS ’18
MForce Bike Holdings has introduced three new Benelli motorcycles slated for market launch in 2019. The new models are being displayed at the ongoing Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018 (KLIMS ’18).
The 502C is an urban cruiser developed for those who seek style and elegance. It is powered by a 500 cc parallel-twin engine that makes 47.6 hp at 8,500 rpm and 45 Nm at 5,000 rpm, paired to a six-speed transmission that channels the output to the rear wheel.
The steel trellis frame is combined with a 41-mm upside-down fork and a rear monoshock featuring adjustable spring preload and a travel of 50 mm. The braking system consists of double semi-floating disc measuring 260 mm with four-piston calipers in front and a single 240-mm disc with a single-piston caliper at the rear.
Other standard features include front and rear ABS, LED headlight and a 21-liter fuel tank.
Like the Leoncino 500, this quarter-liter bike combines tradition with contemporary style, innovation and performance. Full-LED headlight, digital instrument panel as well as stylised lion on the front mudguard similar that of its bigger sibling come as standard.
Power is provided by a 250 cc single-cylinder unit that makes 26.8 hp at 10,500 rpm and 21 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The engine is equipped with electronic fuel injection with a 37-mm throttle body.
The Leoncino 250 gets a 41-mm upside-down fork and a rear monoshock with 51 mm of travel. A 280 mm floating disc with a four-piston caliper and a 240 mm disc with a single-piston caliper as well as ABS provide ample braking power.
Coming as the smaller version of the TRK 502, the new TRK 251 offers the possibility of adventure riding to B2 license holders.
The bike shares the same equipment as the Leoncino 250 and this includes the suspension, braking system as well as the engine. It also comes with the same 17-inch alloy wheels.
However, the TRK 251 is bigger in size with a measurement of 2,100 mm in length, 840 mm in width and 1,320 mm in height. The bike weighs in at 153 kg and comes with a 17-litre fuel tank to suit the rider’s needs.
