Benelli New Zealand
The unmistakable DNA that distinguishes the modern-classic of the Pesaro company finds its most concrete evolution in the new Leoncino 800. With an authentic style, characterized by essentiality and a balanced mix of classic and modern styles, which finds its maximum expression thanks to the new 754cc beating heart, the most advanced in the Benelli range.
The pure elegance of its lines and modernity of its style, this sporty naked expresses all its essence and uniqueness, while maintaining the iconic elements of the Leoncino range. In this 800cc version we find the stylistic element of the arch, faithful to both the headlight and the tank, keeping the family feeling unchanged.
The riding position ensures the utmost comfort for the rider and the passenger alike; moreover, it perfectly matches the overall lines of the bike, much like the modern and balanced exhaust design. The Lion has a special place standing proudly of the front mudguard, like on our historic motorcycles and the rest of the Leoncino range.
The beating heart of Leoncino 800 is the 754cc, liquid cooled, four-stroke, twin cylinder engine; dependable and reactive, now Euro5 approved. It delivers well on the throttle with a power of 76.2 HP (56 kW) at 8500 rpm and a torque of 67 Nm (6.8 kgm) at 6500 rpm. Finally, the double overhead camshaft timing with 4 valves per cylinder, as well as the double throttle body of 43 mm diameter, wet anti-slip clutch and 6-speed gearbox, complete the picture for a safe and state-of-the- art engine transmission assembly.
The Benelli braking system 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 17” aluminium alloy tubeless spoked rims mount 120/70-17 and 180/55-17 tyres.
The suspension consists of a front upside-down fork with 50 mm diameter legs, adjustable in rebound, compression and preload, a guarantee of comfort, stability and effectiveness throughout the entire 140 mm travel of the front suspension. On the back there is a swinging arm with central adjustable monoshock in the spring preload and rebound damping.
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.
