The Benelli Leoncino was one of the best bikes to hit our shores in the past decade. Now we get to sample a larger capacity Benelli naked twin. Here in September, the 752S looks the goods...
After Benelli’s success with small and medium-sized displacements, they return to the medium naked segment with their new 752S. Benelli say it is a concrete, pragmatic, and engaging motorcycle, capable of winning over every rider from the first ride. RRP is $12,990 R/A.
Featuring a modern design with sporty and harmonic lines, Benelli says that the 752S is a compact and dynamic bike, capable of captivating at first glance.
At the heart of the Benelli 752S, is a 754cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. With constant, progressive acceleration, Benelli claims it satisfies both the intermediate rider and demanding enthusiast. Other features include electronic fuel injection with double throttle-body, double overhead camshaft, and four-valves per-cylinder. Power and torque are 56kW@8500rpm and 67Nm@6500rpm.
The suspension consists of 50mm Marzocchi front upside down forks, which Benelli claim is a guarantee of stability and effectiveness throughout the entire 117mm travel of the front suspension. On the back there is a preload adjustable KYB monoshock with 45mm travel.
Benelli says the attention to safety and performance is confirmed by the characteristics of the braking system, with a double 320mm diameter disc on the front and four-piston floating calliper, and a 260mm diameter disc on the back with a single-piston floating calliper. As usual, it is equipped with ABS. The 17in aluminium alloy rims mount 120/70 – 17 and 180/55 – 17 Pirelli Angel ST tyres. The is tank is 15L.
The 752 S will be available in Australia from September 2020 at $12,990 ride away, in colours ‘Bianco’, ‘Rosso’, ‘Verde’ and ‘Nero’.
