Benelli Imperiale 400 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Gets modern-classic styling
    • Accessible seat height
    • Good sales, service backup
  • Could be Better

    • Misses out on tube-less tyres
    • Gets analogue instrument cluster
    • Pillion-seat isn’t comfortable

BikeWale's Take

The Imperiale 400 is an entry-level cruiser motorcycle from Benelli. It was launched to take on the high-selling Royal Enfield Classic 350, but haven’t been able to accomplish that. Blame the lack of brand appeal. While the Imperiale 400 does manage to showcase its modern-classic styling, it fails to entice the customers due to lack of modern elements like digital instrument cluster, tubeless tyres and LED lights.
