Why does this story matter?
Rising input costs might have prompted Benelli to raise the prices of its 502C motorbike in India. However, the two-wheeler remains unchanged in terms of design, features, as well as mechanicals. Notably, this is the second cost hike for the vehicle this year, after one in April. At its price point, it rivals the likes of the Kawasaki Vulcan S.
The bike has full-LED lighting and twin-tip exhaust
The Benelli 502C has a muscular fuel tank, an upswept dual-tip exhaust, a stepped-up seat, and arrowhead-shaped mirrors. The motorbike packs an all-LED lighting setup, a digital instrument console, and rides on alloy wheels. It weighs 216kg and can store 21 liters of fuel. It is up for grabs in three shades, namely Matte Cognac Red, Matte Black, and Glossy Black.
It is backed by a 47hp, 500cc engine
The Benelli 502C is powered by a 500cc, parallel-twin engine that generates 46.8hp of power at 8,500rpm and 46Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. The motor is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
It gets dual-channel ABS
In terms of safety equipment, the Benelli 502C is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS to avoid skidding on the roads while braking. Suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by 41mm inverted telescopic forks on the front side and oil-damped coil springs on the rear end.
