  •  5The lion cub 4 months ago by Joseph Alwin Soza

    The first thing that everyone notice about the benelli leoncino is its looks. The bike has a unique look and it has kept its name of the lion cub in terms of performance and looks.It is finished in good quality materials and has a sturdy build too. The front suspension is eye catching and performs well in terms of stability.The seats are spacious and gives comfort even in long rides. The bike is easy to handle because of its low height design and wider handle bar.In terms of performance the benelli leoncino has a 250cc engine witch gives a linear power delivery.The thing i liked is its ability
