Benelli announced a new motorcycle at EICMA this week...the Leoncino, or Lion Cub. The name was last used on their most iconic motorcycle post WWII. The bike is very clearly aimed at the Scrambler's market. How much of a threat to you think it's going to be to the Scrambler?
This modern take on the classic Benelli Leoncino is an attractive scrambler model, which makes 47hp from its 500cc parallel-twin engine.
This also means that the Benelli Leoncino a well-suited A2 license machine in Europe, and its wire-spoked wheels are 19″ in the front and 17″ in the rear, and should make the Leoncino surprisingly adapt at light off-road use.
Radially mounted four-piston brake calipers up front are mated to wave-pattern 320mm brake discs, which are held by 50mm upside down forks. A 240mm brake disc handles things in the rear.
