502 divided by 2 is 251. Built on the same ethos as that of the TRK 502, is the new Benelli TRK 251 which has been showcased at the 2017 EICMA. Powered by a single cylinder 250 cc, 4 stroke, liquid cooled engine, the new TRK 251 is a global bike, which has been designed for mass market. This engine delivers max power of 25.8 hp (19 kW) at 9250 rpm and max torque of 21 Nm (2.16 kgm) at 8000 rpm.
Featuring a traditional steel tube trestle chassis, the TRK 251 is built to take on the harshest of road conditions. Its engine is tuned to be responsive enough to tackle the urban commuting, while at the same time being relaxed response while you are touring on the highways.
Speaking about the suspension setup, in the front you have upside down forks with 41 mm diameter (for taking on those bad roads / terrains with quite ease) and at the rear you have a monoshock with a central damper adjustable in hydraulics with a 51mm travel.
Braking in the front is via 280mm single floating disc with 4 piston caliper while at the rear is via a 240mm disc with single piston caliper. Featuring 17 inch aluminium alloys finished in matte black, front tyre size is 110/70 while at the rear you have 150/60.
Demand for adventure tourers is on the rise across the globe, more so in developing countries like Brazil and India. This is why more and more brands are entering the sub 500 cc segment. To help Benelli increase their market share in this segment, the new TRK 251 has been launched. To be launched in Europe first (by mid 2018), expect India launch to take place by late 2018, where it could be priced in the range of Rs 2.5-3 lakh.
