2022 Benelli TRK 502: what’s new?
Benelli has equipped the 2022 TRK 502 models with a new full-colour, TFT instrument console, updated switchgear, heated handlebar grips and a tyre pressure monitoring system. The other significant change on the 2022 TRK is the lighter, cast aluminium swingarm. The new swingarm saves 3.6kg of weight over the outgoing model’s steel unit.
Furthermore, the TRK 502X can now be had with wire-spoke rims with tubeless tyres in place of tubed tyres than are currently on offer on the India-spec model. Benelli has also introduced new colour options on the TRK 502 models.
2022 Benelli TRK 502: engine details
The Benelli TRK 502 models continue to be powered by a 499.6cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that puts out 47.5hp at 8,500rpm and 46Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox.
Benelli TRK 502 rivals
The Benelli TRK 502 in India is priced from Rs 5.32 lakh, while the TRK 502 X is priced from Rs 5.79 lakh. The TRK range currently has only one direct rival – the Honda CB500X, which is priced at Rs 5.80 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom). When it is launched in India sometime this year, expect the updated Benelli TRK 502 range to cost more for its added features.
