Benelli Leoncino 250 is expected to launch in India in January 2024 in the expected price range of ₹ 2,70,000 to ₹ 2,90,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to Leoncino 250 are Honda CB350RS, Yezdi Scrambler & KTM 250 Adventure. Another bike similar to Leoncino 250 is Triumph Scrambler 400 X which is launching in October 2023 in India.
Benelli has revealed the 2022 Leoncino 250 for select international markets. This quarter-litre model is expected to reach the Indian market, although the official details are unavailable yet. The motorcycle is powered by a Euro5-compliant 250cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 25.8bhp of power at 9,250rpm.
The motorcycle is built around a steel trellis frame. The suspension tasks are handled by upside-down forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. The braking system includes a 280mm front disc and a 240mm rear rotor while the safety net comprises dual-channel ABS.
The styling cues include a new LED headlamp that looks similar to the unit on the Leoncino 500, a dual-tone front fender with the lion of Pesaro motif, a flat-ish saddle, rear fender-mounted numberplate, and a side-slung exhaust.
This quarter-litre Benelli motorcycle will rival the likes of Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and the Yezdi Scrambler in the Indian market.
