The 2023 Benelli Leoncino 500 has been unveiled in Malaysia. The bike will make its India debut very soon, and here’s a look at the updated model.
2023 Benelli Leoncino 500 Design And Looks
The 2023 Leoncino 500 retains the same LED headlight with a centrally-mounted projector headlamp. For the latest model, the saddle has been revised to be more comfortable for both the rider and the pillion. The Leoncino 500’s butch design and the ornamental Lion of Pesaro on the front fender have been retained. The rear single-sided tire-hugger completes the scrambler look.
2023 Benelli Leoncino 500 Engine
The engine in the 2023 model is the same. It’s a 500cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine with 47.6bhp and 46Nm of torque. It’s also likely that the six-speed transmission will remain unchanged. The 2023 Leoncino 500 comes with LED lighting, a fully digital instrument console, and ABS. Having said that, Benelli could have equipped it with smartphone connectivity, which has become an unspoken norm in today’s world.
The latest model’s hardware includes 50mm USD front forks and an offset rear shock. The braking system includes dual 320mm front discs and a single 260mm rear disc mounted on 17-inch alloy wheels. Pirelli 120/70 front and 160/60 rear tires are fitted to the wheels.
2023 Benelli Leoncino 500 India Launch
For the international market, Benelli will offer the bike in four colors: red, dark matt grey, black, and green. We anticipate that it will be released in India soon.
