- Powered by a 754cc engine
- Gets tubeless tyre-compatible wire-spoke wheels
- Indian launch details are unavailable yet
Benelli has revealed the new TRK800 adventure-tourer for the international markets. This new model, which will rival the likes of KTM 890 Adventure and Triumph Tiger 900 range, is powered by a 754cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine that it borrows from the Leoncino 800. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, this motor produces 76.2bhp at 8,500rpm 67Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The transmission benefits from a torque-assisted wet slipper clutch mechanism.
The typical adventure-tourer styling comprises a semi-fairing design with a beak-style front, twin-pod headlight with T-shaped LED DRL, windscreen, knuckle guards, radiator shrouds, split-style seat, upswept exhaust canister, sump guard, and tubeless tyre-compatible wire-spoke wheels.
The hardware includes 50mm Marzocchi upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock to handle the suspension duties. The front fork are adjustable for rebound, compression, and spring preload. The mono-shock, on the other hand, gets spring preload and hydraulic rebound damping adjustments. Meanwhile, the anchoring tasks are handled by twin 320mm discs at the front and a single 260 rotor at the back. Lastly, the motorcycle rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear aluminium alloy rims.
The Benelli TRK 800 will arrive at Benelli dealers in the international markets from mid-2023. The Indian launch details, however, are not available yet.
