The BS6 Benelli TRK 502 has been officially launched. This adventure tourer will also be available in a Pure White and Benelli Red colour scheme according to the company. According to the various report, there is no news regarding whether the bike will be launched in the Nepalese market or not but we suspect Benelli will introduce that model soon. The BS6 compliant model has received some notable updates, in addition to the updated engine that meets emission standards. Italian bike manufacturer Benelli has yet to reveal the price for the Nepalese market.
The upcoming BS6 Benelli TRK 502 features an updated instrument cluster. It features an orange LCD with a white backlit analog tachometer and a small digital display. The new TRK 502 comes with backlit switchgear as well as aluminum frame knuckle guards, new handlebar grips as well as larger mirrors. Benelli TRK 502 gets 17-inch alloy wheels with tyres designed for on-road cruising while the bike gets a dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System as a standard braking system. Meanwhile, the design of the large fuel-tank gives the TRK 502 a unique look.
The Benelli TRK 502’s 499cc, the parallel-twin engine is now cleaner and complies with the strict BS6 emission norms. The BS6 TRK 502 is powered by the same 499.6cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine and peak output figures remain identical as well, at 47.5hp at 8,500rpm and 46Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. The bike is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The Benelli TRK 502 is offered in three colour schemes– Metallic Dark Grey, Pure White, and Benelli Red. Talking about comfort, the seats are now double-threaded which should improve both the rider and pillion comfort.
As we mentioned earlier, prices for the TRK 502 are yet to be revealed for the Nepalese market while it cost around 5 lakhs in India. Meaning we have to pay around more than 10 lakhs once launched in Nepal. The direct rival to Benelli TRK 502 is the Kawasaki Versys 650 and the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT. All of these bikes are yet to be launched in the Nepalese market. According to Managing Director from Benelli- It is the perfect amalgamation of an innovative technological phenomenon, unmatched ergonomics, enhanced functionality, and uncompromised quality.
