About Leoncino 500 BS4

The Leoncino is Benelli’s scrambler-styled offering in the country. Inspired by motorcycles from the 70s, it gets a round headlamp with LED DRLs and a round LCD instrument cluster that adds to its retro appeal. Furthermore, the Leoncino gets a curvy, 12.7-litre fuel tank that integrates into the upswept tail section which houses an LED tail lamp and LED turn indicators. The Leoncino 500 comes equipped with a tyre hugger that features the number plate holder.

The motorcycle is built around a steel trellis frame that houses a 499cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. This engine produces 47bhp of power at 8500rpm and 45Nm of torque at 4500rpm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. The Leoncino 500 rides on 17-inch wheels that are wrapped in tyres sourced from Pirelli. Suspension duties on the motorcycle are done by 50mm inverted forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking hardware consists of twin 320mm discs upfront and a single 260mm disc at the rear along with an ABS comprise of the motorcycle’s braking hardware.

Benelli is offering the Leoncino 500 in two colour options of 'Leoncino red' and 'Steel Grey'. It does not have a direct competitor in the market but in terms of pricing, the Leoncino 500 has the Kawasaki Z650 as a rival.
