- Benda LFC700 is the production model of the LF-01 concept
- To be launched on 1 July
- Powered by a four-cylinder motor
Benda Motorcycle had unveiled the LF-01 concept at the 18th Motor Expo held at Chongqing, on September last year. Now, the brand is all set to launch the production model on 1 July which is called as the Benda LFC700. The company is a China-based two-wheeler manufacturer.
The LFC700 is going to be very close to its concept model, the LF-01, in terms of design. The cruiser motorcycle surely looks quite sharp and beefy. The bike will be equipped with features like all LED lights, aluminium body panels, cruise control, city dynamic clutch, Bosch ABS and electronic throttle.
Powering the bike is a 680cc four-cylinder, water-cooled engine which churns out 96.55bhp at 12000rpm. To put all this power down and achieve a top speed of 180kmph, it mounts a 19-inch rim at the front wrapped in 130 section tyre and an 18-inch rim at the rear wrapped in a 310 section tyre. For effective braking, it employs a disc on both ends assisted by Bosch ABS.
The price of the bike will be revealed at its launch on 1 July. However, we can expect it to be priced at around 50,000 yuan, which converts to Rs 5.7 lakh. The chances of the bike entering the Indian market are pretty slim. But, it goes up against the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Kawasaki Vulcan S in terms of displacement and body style.
