Surprise: Benelli Leoncino 250 Launched at 2.50 Lakh

Benelli Leoncino 250 price is on a higher side but remember you do not have many of these kinds in India yet…

Just when we were all set for the official introduction of the retro Imperiale 400, Benelli has surprised the market by launching the Leoncino 250 out of nowhere! Leoncino 250 is the smaller sibling of the 500 which also debuted in India recently.

Unlike the 500, Leoncino 250 gets power from a single cylinder, liquid cooled, 4-valve, DOHC, 249cc engine which has a rated output of 25.8 PS at 9250 rpm and 21 Nm of max torque at 8000 rpm. Power is distributed across 6 gears.

The motorcycle rides on a Steel Trellis frame with 41 mm upside down telescopic suspension at the front. Braking power comes from a single 280 mm disc upfront and a single 240 mm rotor at the rear. It appears to be equipped with dual channel ABS.

Leoncino 250 Price

Leoncino 250 has been priced at Rs 2.50 Lakh ex-showroom. It is the most affordable Benelli in India at this point of time but it still is a costly preposition for this price segment which comprises the insanely powerful Duke 390, dual cylinder Interceptor 650 and others. However, it is the cheapest scrambler in India, till someone else also pays heed to this segment.
