Why does this story matter?
The TRK 251 is Benelli's entry-level adventure bike and it broke cover at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy. Its great performance and good looks make it attractive to buyers. When the two-wheeler will arrive on our shores it will be priced affordably. It will go against rivals such as the KTM 250 Adventure and increase competition in the market.
The bike has a windscreen and 17-inch wheels
Benelli TRK 251 sits on a trestle frame and has a muscular fuel tank with extensions, a prominent beak, split-style seats, a pillion grab rail, a side-slung exhaust, and a raised windscreen. It packs a digital instrument console, a halogen headlamp, an LED taillight, and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod in road-focused tires. It can store 18 liters of fuel and weighs 164kg.
It runs on a 26hp, 249cc engine
The Benelli TRK 251 is powered by a 249cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine linked to a 6-speed gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 25.8hp at 9,250rpm and a peak torque of 21.2Nm at 8,000rpm.
It gets inverted front forks
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Benelli TRK 251 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Meanwhile, suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
