Benelli seems to be in full swing with their motorcycles lineup in the Milian motor show. Along with motorcycles like the Royal Enfield rival Imperiale 400 , the Chinese owned Italian brand has a small adventure cruiser on its sleeve and it's the all-new TRK 251; a smaller sibling of the capable and popular TRK 502.
Much of the design inspiration of the TRK 251 is taken from its elder sibling and the incorporation of a steel tube trellis frame gives this motorcycle an edge. A single cylinder 250cc, 4-stroke, liquid cooled engine powers the TRK 251. The engine produces a maximum power of 26PS at 9,250rpm and a maximum torque of 21Nm at 8,000 rpm. This motorcycle is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The TRK 251 gets a 41mm upside down forks at the front suspension while a monoshock with a central damping adjustment with 51mm travel comes at the rear suspension.The suspension system is made to make the motorcycle perform well on harsh terrains and highways very well. A 280mm single floating disc with 4 piston caliper forms the front while a 240mm disc with single-piston caliper forms the rear braking system.
As of now, Benelli hasn't said anything about the launch of the TRK 251 in India, but the popularity of adventure motorcycles in India is in rising, and the launch of the TRK 251 will help Benelli get some market share of this segment.
