With the launch of 502c, we are venturing into an all-new segment of high-performance power cruisers and are looking forward to adding more customers to the Benelli family in the country.”
Design & Features
Well, we can’t deny the fact that the bike looks like it has taken inspiration from a certain “Italian cruiser”, you know what we are talking about. The low-slung seat, wide handlebars and a chopped-off rear end make sure that it is aesthetically pleasing. The fuel tank appears to be rather muscular and the trellis frame is exposed, further alleviating its mean looks. Other visual highlights include a prominent radiator, twin-barrel exhaust, LED tail light, LED indicators, and LED headlamp with LED DRL. The cruiser gets a fully digital instrument console with blue backlighting. To keep up with your touring needs, the bike is equipped with a large 21-litre fuel tank and a comfortable saddle seat which is not meant to carry a pillion. The cruiser is available in two colours namely Matte Cognac Red and Matte Black.
Specs & Drivetrain
The 502c is 2240mm long, 950mm wide and 1150mm tall. Giving it the cruiser character is the 1600mm long wheelbase. The ground clearance is a decent 170mm. The seat height comes at 750mm which should be comfortable for most Indian riders. Upfront the bike gets telescopic USD forks, 17-inch alloys with 120 section Pirelli Angel Tyres and 280mm dual disc brakes. As for the rear, the stopping power comes from a 240mm single disc brake. The bike gets 17-inch with 160 section Pirelli Anger Tyres alloys at the rear with a telescopic coil spring suspension.
