Upcoming Benelli motorcycles in 2021 could include two new 300s along with a beautiful 500 that is coming tomorrow…
Benelli has plans to launch 3 new motorcycles by the fall of 2021 while expanding its dealerships throughout India. This has been confirmed by the Business Head and Managing Director for Benelli India, Vikas Jhabakh.
Earlier this year, Benelli announced seven motorcycles that were to be introduced in India. From that list TRK 502, 502X and Leoncino 500 are already here.
One of these upcoming bikes – the xDiavel inspired 502C is scheduled for launch tomorrow and its bookings have already commenced.
The other two probables could be the 302S and 302R. 302S has never been in India and could be a very competitive option in the entry level sports segment – definitely better than the older TNT 300.
The full faired 302R has already been updated in international markets and could be the other launch. The parallel twin model with an impressive exhaust note which made it a worthy competitor against the likes of Ninja 300. The older model of 302R offered 37hp of power and 26.5Nm of Torque.
The Italian maker is aiming to break through the mid-range segment of motorcycling which has been gaining a lot of traction for at least a couple of years now. The company is sensing a lot of potential in this segment around 300cc to 500cc.
With multiple offerings in the 500cc segment, it would be beneficial for Benelli to now spread its 300cc line-up that would obviously be lesser priced and hence, have the potential for a wider acceptance.
