This new compact 250cc motorcycle from Benelli Leoncino is designed as the smaller version of the 500cc version. It uses a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine with a double overhead camshaft timing system fed fuel through electronic fuel injection. The Benelli Leoncino 250 delivers a max-power output of25 horsepower managed by a six-speed transmission. Suspension upfront on the Leoncino 250 features a 41mm upside-down fork and a swinging arm with a central mono-shock in the rear-end. The factory 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels stop using a 280mm single floating, four-piston caliper, disc for the front wheel, and a 240mm disc brake for the rear wheel, featuring dual ABS for as a standard safety feature.
The Benelli Leoncino 250 shines the road ahead using a full-LED headlight assembly, and digital instrument gauges up on the handlebars giving the rider precise readings. The 250cc design looks similar to the 500cc, which offers a modern take with a muse of nostalgia for the last century’s motorcycles. The bike profile shows its steel tube trellis frame with a blacked-out engine and radiator and a large silver muffler coming out the side. It looks like a mini-sports bike with enough style and attitude to not be mistaken for a moped.
