Benelli TRK 502 BSVI launched at Rs 4.79 lakh undercutting its predecessor
Italian motorcycle brand Benelli has launched the BSVI version of its adventure tourer the TRK 502. The company has priced it at Rs 4.79 lakh, which makes it Rs 21,000 more affordable than its predecessor launched in 2019. Though Benelli has clearly mentioned that this is an introductory price for the motorcycle. However, there's no update on the spoke-wheeled sibling 502X, if that will be launched anytime soon, is something that needs to be seen.
Coming to the TRK 502, the above-mentioned price is for the standard grey shade, while for the Pure White and Benelli Red will cost Rs 10,000 more premium than that at Rs 4.89 lakh, ex-showroom. The motorcycle can be booked at Rs. 10,000, with deliveries now open. Also, Benelli is offering a standard warranty of three years. The re-tuned, liquid-cooled 500cc twin-cylinder engine produces 47.5 PS of power at 8,500rpm with peak torque of 46Nm at 6000rpm. The motor is paired with a six-speed gearbox.
Commenting on the TRK 502 launch, Mr. Vikas Jhabakh, Managing Director, Benelli India, said, "We are delighted to introduce the BS-VI TRK 502. It is the perfect amalgamation of an innovative technological phenomenon, unmatched ergonomics, enhanced functionality and uncompromised quality. With the transition to BS-VI norms, we are confident in further strengthening our footprint in the premium touring segment."
He further added, "We are working towards expanding our dealership reach and will continue to add more models in the BS-VI format over the course of the year 2021, ensuring that there is something for every biking enthusiast in the Benelli portfolio."
