Benelli has launched the Leoncino 250 in India priced at Rs 2.5 lakhs (ex showroom prices). The smaller in capacity Leoncino 250 will be sold alongside the larger and recently launched Leoncino 500.
The bike gets similar styling like the Leoncino 500 but gets slimmer front forks, 17-inch alloy wheels at front and rear, standard leather seat and can be had four colours Brown, White, Grey and Red. The LED daytime running light however gets an oval shaped layout as opposed to the full ring on its larger sibling.
Powering the motorcycle is a 249cc engine that puts out 25.4bhp at 9,250rpm and 21 Nm of torque at 8,000rpm and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It uses a 41mm upside down fork and pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear, while braking is taken care of by 280mm front and 240mm disc at the rear along with dual channel ABS.
Bookings for the bike have begun for Rs 6,000 that is fully refundable and the bike rivals the KTM Duke 250 and the Honda CBR 250R.
