Benelli 752S looks like a modified MV Agusta Brutale 800 with different badge; expected to launch in India soon
Benelli has unveiled its new 752S at the EICMA 2017 in Milan. Test mule of the bike was spotted couple of times and it was rumored to be christened as Benelli 750. But, now, the Italian premium bike manufacturer has uncovered it and revealed the name as well. What’s more interesting for us is this bike is expected to launch in India soon.
Speaking about its style, the Benelli 752S appears with a very bold and aggressive stance that somehow resembles with the MV Agusta Brutale 800. If you look at the headlamp and fuel tank, then you will find the similarity between these two bikes. The bike manufacturer says this model will go on sale in second half of 2018.
We can expect Benelli to showcase this bike in India at the upcoming 2018 New Delhi Auto Expo and it could launch here sometime in late 2018 or in early 2019. Also, expect it to be priced competitively in order to lure the buyers. It is likely to be rolled out in Chinese market as well.
The bike is built on a tubular steel chassis. It comes with twin LED projector headlamps with an integrated LED ring. There is a fully digital instrument cluster and a chunky muscular fuel tank. The blackened and naked engine bay enhances its aggressiveness. A low positioned seat promises comfortable riding experience along with greater control over the machine and the pillion seat is stepped up. There is a shortened tail section with LED taillight and a short exhaust muzzle as well.
Speaking about its engine, the Benelli 752S draws energy from a 750 cc water-cooled twin-cylinder Euro-IV compliant engine that is capable of churning out 81.6 hp of peak power at 9,000 rpm. The engine actually has been derived from the motor developed for the Benelli 756 that was displayed decade ago. Suspension duty is done by 50 mm USD front fork and adjustable monoshock at rear. For braking purpose, it relies on twin 320 mm disc brakes up front and there is a single disc brake at rear as well.
