Benelli 502C: booking amount
Having teased its arrival just a couple of days ago, Benelli has unveiled the 502C in India and also opened pre-bookings for its incoming power cruiser. Bookings can be made for a refundable amount of Rs 10,000, and an official launch is expected by the end of this month.
Benelli 502C: engine
The 502C is powered by the same 500cc parallel-twin motor that already does duty in the Leoncino and TRK 502 models in India. Output figures stand at 47.5hp and 46Nm, and drive reaches the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox and chain drive system.
Benelli 502C: design
In terms of styling, the 502C gets a slightly low and long power cruiser stance that seems to derive heavily from the Ducati Diavel, especially at the rear. Highlights include a beefy USD fork, exposed trellis frame and twin-barrel exhaust system.
Benelli 502C: expected price
The 502C is expected to be launched a little under the Rs 5 lakh mark, which will make it slightly more expensive than the Leoncino. Its main competition will come from other affordable twin-cylinder motorcycles with Chinese origins – namely the recently launched CFMoto 650cc models.
