With NADA Auto Show 2019 just around the corner, there’s a whole bunch of us waiting for some amazing pieces of innovation and engineering works that are to be showcased. However, it’s not always all hunky-dory and in order to stand out a product has to be adaptable to the market standards and demand, and for a country like Nepal, it’s tough for any brand to break in so easy.
Not all products and brands are known but from what we know, Benelli Nepal is to bring in two new bikes: the TRK 251 and Leoncino 251.
The Benelli Leoncino 251 is a scrambler and boasts a naked chassis that screams retro with a bit of its own twist that makes it distinct, however, the interesting one for me has to be the Benelli TRK 251 that falls into adventure category and flaunts the much-loved adventure sports design.
Here’s a quick overview of the Benelli TRK 251.
Powered by a 249.2cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, the Benelli TRK 251 maxes the power output at 18kW at 9500RPM and gives it a 21Nm of torque at 7500RPM. It hosts a 6-speed gear shift. The bike flaunts a steel trellis frame and has a fuel tank capacity of 17 liters, which means long rides isn’t going to be that big of an issue.
From Upside Down forks to dual-channel ABS, everything about the Benelli TRK 251 shouts premium. To give you a perspective about what the bike looks like, well it draws its styling cues from BMW 850 GS and Honda CRF series. It comes in three color options: Red, White, and Black. If you want to get a glimpse of the Benelli TRK 251, you can visit the Benelli Showroom in Naxal or wait till it gets the crowd cheering attention at the NADA Auto Show 2019.
The pricing for the Benelli TRK 251 is confirmed to be Rs. 6,30,000 in Nepal.
Just by the overview, the price tag of NPR. 6,30,000 seems to be well justified and it will definitely gravitate the youth towards itself once it’s out. That wraps it off for the Benelli TRK 251.
