Benelli has announced the launch of the new 502C cruiser in the Indian market. The motorcycle has been priced at ₹4.98 lakh (ex-showroom). It is a direct rival to the likes of the Kawasaki Vulcan S.
The cruiser’s design includes aggressive styling, visible steel trellis frame, ultra-comfortable riding ergonomics, free floating single piece seat, muscular tank, LED lighting, imposing front fascia, chunky front suspension and double-barrel stainless steel exhaust pipes.
The Benelli 502c will be offered in two colour options – Matte Cognac Red and Matte Black. The 502c is powered by a refined 500cc, four-stroke, twin cylinder engine with EFI, DOHC and TLI. The engine churns out 47.5 PS of peak power at 8500 rpm and 45 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm.
In terms of hardware components, it benefits from upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock, twin discs on the front wheel and a single rotor at the back. It gets 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends which come shod with Pirelli Angel GT tyres. Other highlights of Benelli’s new cruiser include its fully digital instrument console, laid-back riding ergonomics, 21-litres fuel tank and adjustable clutch.
The 502c also gets unmatched comfort and riding ergonomics, thanks to the low seating position, wide swept handlebars and forward-set foot pegs. The braking duties are handled by dual semi-floating 280mm discs up front and a 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS.
The deliveries of the Ultimate Urban Cruiser are scheduled to start from August 2021 across all the exclusive Benelli showrooms in India. Benelli India started taking the pre-bookings of the 502c with a minimum booking amount of Rs. 10,000. The 502c can be booked at the nearest authorized Benelli showroom and online by logging into – http://india.benelli.com/campaigns/benelli502c.
