The bike comes with highly aggressive stands and draws its inspiration from the predecessor model of Benelli TRK 252. In terms of the overall design, the Benelli TRK 251 features a sharpened beak-like mudguard on the front. At the same time, the headlamps of the bike appear to be highly crafted. The bike also comes with a long windshield which ensures ultimate comfort of the rider during a high-speed biking experience.

The powerful engine of the bike is capable of generating a power of 25.8 HP (Horse Power) at 9,250 rpm along with a peak torque of 8000 rpm. The engine of the bike has been mated to a 6-speed transmission gearbox which ensures a smooth riding experience.
The braking responsibilities of the bike are controlled by a 280 mm single floating disc and a 4 piston caliper at the front end. Towards the rear end, the bike features a 240 mm disc along with a single piston caliper. There has been a rise on the global platform for dual-purpose motorcycles that come with adequate grunt for both on as well as off-road applications.
