Speaking about its design, the 2018 Benelli 402S features a design that is very close to the Ducati XDiavel. If you look at the side profile, it looks like a modified XDiavel. However, the Benelli won’t leave you complaining as it bears the distinctiveness as well. The headlamp is certainly a Benelli thing as it bears resemblances with TNT 300, but with uniqueness.

Side profile of this model delivers a bold look with the nakedness. A low sitting and ergonomically designed spacious seat not only ensures comfortable riding posture, but great control over the machine as well. The shortened tail-section gets LED lights and there side mounted twin-barrel exhaust.
