Benelli Announces 2024 Model-Year Offerings for the US Market
In recent years, Chinese motorcycle manufacturers have gained global recognition. Brands like CFMoto and Benelli have impressed with their affordable prices, features, and technology. Benelli, in particular, has made significant progress and has now announced its offerings for the US market in 2024.
Benelli TRK 702 Series
The middleweight adventure bike segment offers a variety of options for riders with different budgets. Benelli's newest TRK 702 model range aims to cater to riders who want a respectable tech and performance package without breaking the bank. The TRK 702 is available in two versions: the X, which is more off-road-focused, and the Street, which is more touring-oriented. Both models feature a 698cc parallel-twin engine and come equipped with tech features such as a full-color TFT display, ride modes, and Bluetooth smartphone pairing. The TRK 702X is priced at $8,499 USD, while the TRK 702 Street is priced at $7,899.
Benelli TRK 502X
The Benelli TRK 502X, which has been a top-seller for the brand, continues to be available in the US market. This bike has gained popularity among ADV riders in Europe and other parts of the world. Priced at $6,699, it competes with bikes like the Honda NX500 and offers a more attractive price point.
Benelli Imperiale 400
The Benelli Imperiale 400 is the brand's take on a laid-back, classic-inspired machine. With a design inspired by the 1950s Motobi Imperiale, this bike pays homage to the brand's heritage. It is powered by a Euro 5-compliant fuel-injected single-cylinder engine with an output of 21 horsepower and 21.4 pound-feet of torque. The Imperiale 400 is priced at $4,899.
The Benelli 302S is a lightweight naked streetfighter with a unique engine. It features a 360-degree parallel-twin, providing a powerful and torquey performance. Priced at $4,799, it competes with bikes like the Yamaha MT-03 and CFMoto 300NK.
The Benelli TNT135 is the most affordable model in Benelli's US market lineup. This sporty-styled mini-bike is powered by a responsive 135cc single-cylinder engine with 13 horsepower and 7.4 pound-feet of torque. Priced at just $3,199, it offers affordability and fun.
While Benelli revealed some exciting models at EICMA 2023, such as sportbikes and the BKX300 adventure bike, it seems that these models will not be available in the US market in 2024. However, there is hope that they will launch in China or Europe this year and potentially make their way to the US market in 2025.
