Benelli New Zealand
An off-road soul, pure Leoncino style. Benelli introduces Leoncino 800 Trail, a motorcycle with a distinct off-road spirit, brought out by the double exhaust in a raised position and the 19” front wheel. This model extends the range of the Pesaro based manufacturer and is designed to bring out the authenticity of the Leoncino line concept.
Leoncino 800 Trail stands out for ambitious and sophisticated style elements in a perfect off-road fashion, such as the high headlight fairing located right above the full-led front light, featuring the Leoncino series arc.
The new double exhaust in higher position defined the bike silhouette and gives it a rally spirit. The exhaust was developed specifically for the Trail version, as well as the number plate holder and the heat shield on the side, which also bring out the off-road inclination of this model.
The 754-cc twin-cylinder, four-stroke engine is liquid cooled and now is Euro 5 approved. It unleashes 76,2 HP (56 kW) at 8500 rpm and a torque of 67 Nm (6.8 kgm) at 6500 rpm, in order to ensure pure fun and performance off-road. It features double overhead camshaft timing with 4 valves per cylinder and the double throttle body of 43 mm diameter. The wet anti-slip clutch and 6-speed gearbox are also worth mentioning.
The knobby tires, 120/70 19” in the front and 170/60 17” in the rear, complete the set of technical upgrades. The Benelli braking system, the same as Leoncino 800, is exceptionally safe thanks to the double 320 mm diameter semi-floating disc on the front and four-piston radial mount mono-block calliper, and a 260 mm diameter disc on the back with a double piston calliper.
The frame is a tubular trellis with steel plates, the same as the road version, which ensures easy and nimble handling on the road. Up-side down front fork with 50 mm diameter legs, with adjustable rebound, compression and pre-load, has longer travel, from 140 mm in the road model to 148 mm. The same upgrade took place on the rear, with a single, central swinging arm with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping, whose travel was also increased (140 mm). As consequence, the seat was raised from 805 mm in the road model to 834 mm.
The Leoncino 800 features the latest-technology TFT instruments on a dashboard that stands out for its modern and authentic design, it delivers total situational awareness and enhances the bikes aggressive lines, whilst delivering all the necessary information to the rider.
The care for details and genuine materials are the hallmarks of Leoncino 800. The angled and modern-looking tank is made of steel and spots the Benelli logo, as tradition commands. The Leoncino logo appears under the seat on a sleek aluminium side panel, which flows dynamically from the tank creating a simple, yet sophisticated style element. The headlight is full LED with an authentic and sophisticated design, brought out by the arc and Benelli Leoncino logo at the centre.
