The price of the 2021 Benelli Leoncino is expected to be around Rs 7-8 Lakhs*. Benelli Leoncino 800 is currently sold in some Asian countries and this powerful bike will make it to India very soon.
The Benelli Leoncino 800 is offered in 4 exciting colour options and it is powered by a 794cc single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission and powers figures are at 81Bhp of max power with 68 Nm of peak torque. And braking is assisted by a Single 320 mm Disc at the front and a Single 260 mm Disc at the rear.
The Benelli Leoncino 800 comes fitted with Upside-down forks Ø 50mm with adjustable hydraulic brake rebound, compression and spring preload. The bike rolls on spoke wheels with tubeless Pirelli MT60 RS dual-purpose tyres. Leoncino 800 include a TFT screen with directional buttons on the switchgear, an all-LED lighting system and a standard centre stand.
The Leoncino was expected to hit the markets by the middle of 2020 but thanks to the pandemic the launch has now been delayed to December 2021. The bike still has no main competitors after looking at the price and the power it offers. The bike is heavy and looks muscular thanks to the trellis frame which the bike uses. Overall the bike looks good and has an excellent performance.
