Benelli reveals sports cafe racer version of Leoncino 500, here are all the details

New Delhi: Italian automaker Benelli has launched the all new café racer version of its middle-weight scrambler-styled model, the Leoncino 500, in China. You can notice some cosmetic changes in the new version, while the engine remains same in the bike.

The Leoncino 500 is a nice-looking motorcycle even in its stock form but the changes executed in this model make it look truly distinctive. The circular headlamp has been retained but it is now surrounded by a rounded faring, exuding a retro appeal. Then the single-piece handlebar has been replaced by a clip-on unit while the puny double-barrel exhaust only adds its visual charm. The small bag mounted on the right side is a sweet little addition to serving form as well as function.

Propelling the Leocino 500 Sport is the same 500cc, parallel-twin engine that does duty on the standard trim. However, it produces slightly more power and torque at 47.5bhp and 47Nm. It rides on 17-inch spoke wheels that are shod with 120/70 section tyre at the front and 160/60 section tyre at the rear. The damping setup includes upside down forks and a monoshock with dual discs up front and a single disc at the rear are present for shedding speed. The feature list comprises all LED lighting and a fully digital console.

Benelli already retails the standard Leoncino 500 in India at Rs 4.59 lakh. The Sport version is unlikely to arrive here anytime, as is the case with its Trail model.
