- Leoncino 800 gets more power
- 7bhp more than previous model
Benelli had unveiled their big scrambler brand, the Leoncino 800 late last year. While this brand is yet to reach majority of the markets, the company has readied a more powerful version of it.
According to this website which managed to get access to China’s approval documents, Benelli’s parent firm has registered this bike with more displacement and power. The newer model will make 87bhp – a 7bhp increase over previous model.
The company has decided to upgrade both the models – the Leoncino 800 and the Leoncino 800 Trail. Interestingly, this upcoming model is also lighter at 209kgs as compared to the 220kgs model. So in terms of performance, this bike is bound to perfect much better due to an improved power-to-weight ratio.
We are expecting Benelli to unveil this model in the next few weeks and we are hoping that this model will come to India late this year.
