The Benelli TRK 502X is the off-road version of the touring-based TRK 502. Introduced in the middle-weight adventure touring segment, the TRK 502X fetches a sticker price of Rs 5.40 lakhs, ex-showroom. We recently spent some time riding the off-road version in Chikmagalur. Here’s a launch ride photo gallery of the TRK 502X.
The TRK 502X shares the same design as the 502 which is a prominent front-end with a beak-type fairing with several contours that give it an aggressive and a perched-up stance.
The motorcycle features a twin headlamp setup with LED DRLs nested between the front mudguard and tall windscreen that is non-adjustable.
The motorcycle features a big upswept exhaust instead of an underbelly unit as seen on the TRK 502 variant.
In terms of features, the motorcycle comes equipped with a semi-digital instrument console that features a large analogue tachometer on the left and an LCD screen on the right, displaying information like speed, gear position, fuel level, coolant temperature, time, an odometer and two trip meters.
To take on bad roads and rough terrains, the TRK 502X is equipped with 50mm inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the back. While the front is non-adjustable, the rear gets rebound and preload adjustment.
Braking is done by 320mm dual discs up front with 4-pot floating calipers and a 260mm single disc with a single-pot floating caliper at the back.
For motive force, the TRK 502X comes equipped with a 500cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled DOHC motor. The engine is tuned to deliver 47bhp of max power at 8,500rpm and 46Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm and comes coupled to a 6-speed transmission.
The TRK 502X has a ground clearance of 220mm and a seat height of 840mm. This setup can be a handful when pushing the bike around.
The motorcycle sports a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheels shod with Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres.
Benelli has priced the TRK 502X at Rs 5.4 lakhs ex-showroom by undercutting its closest competition, the SWM Superdual T, by a decent margin.
