Why does it matter?
- Benelli TRK 251 is the first BS6-compliant quarter-liter offering from the company in India. With updated features and good performance, it offers competition to the KTM 250 Adventure bike.
- The TRK 251 is also the latest addition to the portfolio of roadsters in India and will attract many customers with its impressive appearance and touring elements.
The bike has a fuel capacity of 18-liter
Benelli TRK 251 sits on a steel trellis frame and features a naked design with a prominent beak, a raised transparent windscreen, a 18-liter fuel tank, a split-style stepped-up seat, a luggage carrier, and an upswept exhaust. It also houses an all-LED lighting setup, a fully-digital instrument console, and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Metzeler Sportec tires.
A 30hp motor fuels the motorcycle
The Benelli TRK 251 is powered by a 249cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that churns out 29.9hp of maximum power and 24Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed gearbox.
Dual-channel ABS is offered for safety
For the rider's safety, the Benelli TRK 251 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling while applying the brakes. The suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
