About Leoncino

Benelli unveiled the production version of the Leoncino 500 at the 2016 EICMA Show. This modern retro motorcycle has been built on a new platform and is powered by the company’s new 500cc parallel-twin engine.

With the Leoncino, the Italian manufacturer will focus on the growing scrambler segment which is currently dominated by Ducati and BMW. Once launched, the Leoncino will compete with the Ducati Scrambler Sixty 2.

This bike is built around a trellis frame which houses the 499cc parallel-twin engine. This engine produces 47bhp at 8500rpm and peak torque of 45Nm at 4500rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The front suspension consists of 50mm USD forks and a monoshock at the rear. The Italian manufacturer will offer this motorcycle in two versions - standard and trail. While the standard version gets 17-inch wheels, the trail gets a 19-inch front with trail-oriented tyres. The Leoncino 500 tips the scales at 170kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres.

DSK Benelli will launch the Leoncino in India at the end of 2017. Just like most of the Benelli motorcycles, the Leoncino will be assembled in India. We’re expecting the company to launch both the versions of the bike here with a price tag between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 6 lakh.
