Benelli’s India division has today announced the launch of the BSVI TRK 502X in the domestic market and is priced from Rs. 5.19 lakh (ex-showroom) for the metallic Dark Grey paint scheme and it goes up to Rs. 5.29 lakh (ex-showroom) for the Pure White and Benelli Red colours. These are introductory prices subjected to increase and compared to the BSVI model, the prices have been reduced by Rs. 31,000.
The Italian manufacturer has been on a launch spree as it has added new BSVI compliant models to its lineup such as the Imperiale 400 and Leoncino. The 2021 Benelli TRK 502X derives power from the same 499 cc parallel twin-cylinder fuel-injected engine, which is good enough to generate a maximum power output of 46.8 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 46 Nm of peak torque delivered at 6,000 rpm.
The powertrain is connected to a six-speed transmission.
