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 Then the single-piece handlebar has been replaced by a clip-on unit while the puny double-barrel exhaust only adds its visual charm.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.
