Benelli has updated its Chinese product portfolio with the launch of the 1200GT. The grand tourer has been priced at 99,800 Yuan (Rs 11.43 lakh) in the Chinese market. While the motorcycle has been launched in China, there are no details regarding its Indian launch yet. We do not expect to see this motorcycle on our shores anytime soon.
The GT tag brings a semi-fairing design to the motorcycle along with a tall, electronically-adjustable windscreen at the front to provide protection against windblasts and deliver a comfortable ride quality. The feature list on the motorcycle comprises full-LED lighting, 15-inch TFT display, luggage panniers, and a top box.
The hardware on the new Benelli 1200GT comprises upside-down front forks, a rear mono-shock, dual discs on the front wheel, a single rotor at the back, and Brembo-sourced callipers. Mechanical specifications include a 1,209cc, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 134bhp of maximum power at 9,000rpm and 120Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm.
While its Indian launch is not likely to happen anytime soon, the new Benelli 1200GT could enter the European market in the near future.
