We Indians have always loved the idea of modern-classic motorcycles. It is evident from the success of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 over the years and the resurrection of Jawa Motorcycles. So, drawn in by the alluring prospect of the segment, Benelli launched the Imperiale 400 in India last year. In its BS4 form, the motorcycle went on to be one of the highest-selling Benelli in India.
And unquestionably, it was then launched as Benelli’s first BS6 offering in the country earlier this year. We recently spent a decent amount of time on the BS6-compliant Imperiale 400’s saddle, to tell you what the modern-classic motorcycle is all about.
