Benelli Leoncino Scrambler is coming to India by Diwali 2017
Benelli Leoncino Scrambler is due for launch in India this year.
Benelli has some interesting motorcycles lined up for launch in India, through its local partner DSK Motowheels. One of them is the TRK 502, which is scheduled to be launched next year. But ahead of that, there is one more bike that will be launched in India, and that is the Benelli Leoncino Scrambler.
Benelli Leoncino Scrambler made its debut at the 2015 EICMA along with the TRK 502. Paying homage to the original Leoncino motorcycle is the modern interpretation of it with a Scrambler body style.
The Leoncino scrambler is packed with several standout design features such as a lean front fender with 3D lion mascot, twin petal discs, projector headlamp with glossy back housing, eccentrically placed instrument console, shiny red paint job with black Benelli badge, cantilevered tailpiece and black finished chassis and cycle parts.
The funky retro classic concept pays tribute to the original Leoncino of yesteryear. The Leoncino Scrambler employs a steel trellis frame suspended by USD fork upfront and monoshock at the rear. Power comes from the same 500 cc twin-cylinder 48 PS motor that also propels the TRK 502. A meaty USD front fork and a rear monoshock take care of suspension duties.
Already on sale in Europe, the Scrambler will make its debut in India later this year, most likely by Diwali 2017. Once launched, it will take on the likes of Royal Enfield Continental GT, Ducati Scrambler, and so on. Price is expected to be in the range of INR 5 lakhs.
