The Benelli 180s comes with a race-derived chassis and a lightweight yet powerful build. As its tagline “The Thrill of the Hunt” goes, the design does seem exciting and pleasurable for anyone searching for the same.
Moving on, the naked bike has a B3SP engine whilst keeping the Italian touch with displacement number to 175.3cc. For better combustion and performance, it relies on a 3-spark plus engine. Furthermore, it has an LED headlights and sidelights, and digital instrumentation, which displays all important information at a glance.
We are looking at a 1-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine for superior horsepower, torque, compression-ratio, and efficiency with the single-cylinder engine delivering power up to 18 bhp at 9500rpm and torque up to 14.5 Nm at 7000rpm. Also, we have an electronic fuel injection system and a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox. The exhaust system has an oxygen sensor as well whilst the motorbike uses a wet multi-plate clutch and an only-electric starting mechanism.
