- Benelli Imperiale 400 prices increased
- Received a marginal hike of Rs 799
- Remains unchanged on other fronts
Benelli has recently revised the prices of its motorcycles in India which also includes its modern-classic offering, the Imperiale 400. Fortunately, the price hike isn’t substantial as the Royal Enfield Classic 350-rival is just Rs 799 dearer than before. It is available in three colour schemes with varying prices. The new colour-wise ex-showroom (India) prices of the Benelli Imperiale 400 are mentioned below:
Imperiale 400 Silver: Rs 1,89,799
Imperiale 400 Red and Black: Rs 1,93,976
Sitting underneath the Imperiale’s retro body work is a 374cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder mill that comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. It produces 20.7bhp and 29Nm with the torque output figure being one of the highest in its segment. The motorcycle is fairly heavy with a kerb weight of 205kg with its fuel tank capacity being 12-litres. In our tests, it has returned a fuel efficiency hovering between 28-37kmpl, depending on the riding conditions.
The Imperiale 400 rides on a 19-18-inch spoke wheel combination shod with 100/90 and 130/80 section tyres at the front and rear, respectively. Damping duties are taken care of by 41mm telescopic forks and preload-adjustable dual springs. Meanwhile, braking is handled by a 300mm disc up front and a 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS.
The Benelli Imperiale 400 has been a part of BikeWale’s long term for a few months. We have tested the bike in all sorts of conditions and it has managed to impress us in some areas while disappointed us in a few others. You can read our city and touring report of the Imperiale 400 here and here.
