Benelli was all prepped to launch the Imperiale 400 in India on October 25. However, in a surprising turn of events, the brand chose to launch the baby Leoncino 250 first. Priced at Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Leoncino 250 isn't the most affordable quarter-litre bike out there, but it does have a charm of its own. What bike all about? Here a compilation of images that will help you understand it better.
The Leoncino 250 may look similar to its elder sibling, the Leoncino 500. However, it smaller in size, features new paint schemes (white, anthracite, red and brown) and a different oval headlight to distinguish itself from its elder sibling. The LED turn indicators, on the other hand, have been carried over.
Even the unique Lion of Pesaro’ insignia has been downsized to suit the bike's profile.
The Leoncino 250 also gets a new full-digital instrument console with readouts like a gear position indicator, two trip meters, odometer and fuel gauge flanked by telltale lights.
The exhaust end-can has been redesigned and looks more square-ish compared to the round profile of the Leoncino 500.
The Leoncino 250 is powered by the same Euro4, 249cc engine that was earlier seen on the TNT 25. It produces 25.8PS of power and 21Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed transmission.
In terms of underpinnings, the scrambler comes equipped with a 41mm upside-down fork and a monoshock.
Anchoring the bike is a single 280mm disc mated to a four-piston caliper up front and a 240mm disc with a single-piston caliper at the rear.
It’s 17-inch wheels come wrapped with 110/70-section front and 150/60-section rear radial tyres.
And if we were to consider its dimensions, the Leoncino 250 is 35mm narrower and 45mm shorter than the Leoncino 500. It also has a shorter wheelbase of 1380mm. The seat, however, is set on the taller side at 810mm compared to its elder sibling, which measures in at 785mm.
