About Leoncino 250 BS4

The Benelli Leoncino 250 draws design inspiration from its bigger sibling, the Leoncino 500 that is also available in India. The round, full-LED headlamp, tear-drop shaped fuel-tank, a single-piece seat and a short tail section give the Leoncino a distinctive look. It also gets a tyre-hugger mounted number plate holder that completes its appeal.

The bike comes powered by a 249cc, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that churns out 26.8bhp at 10,500rpm and 21Nm of torque at 9,000rpm. The motor comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and chain final drive. Braking hardware on the Leoncino 250 consists of a 280mm petal disc at the front along with a 240mm petal disc for the rear. Meanwhile, the bike rides on 17-inch wheels at both ends suspended by 41mm inverted forks at the front and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. In terms of features, the Leoncino 250 gets a dual-channel ABS and a small LCD instrument cluster. Benelli is offering the Leoncino 250 in three colour options; Italian Red, Pearl Brown, and Titanium Grey.

The Leoncino 250 competes against the Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Royal Enfield Classic 500 in the country.
