Along with the all-new Leoncino 800 Benelli have released the super cool Benelli Leoncino 800 Trail. Sharing the engine with an impressive 60kW (81.6hp)@9000rpm and torque to 67Nm the Trail has a 19in front wheel, knobby Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres and longer travel suspension front and rear, along with a restyled off-road look. 

With 140mm of travel at each and, a 19in front wheel and Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres the Leoncino 800 Trail looks like seriously good fun! We can’t wait to ride this one.

The specifications are otherwise shared with the Leoncino 800 and are impressive, with the DOHC four-valves per cylinder liquid-cooled engine being fed by 43mm throttle-bodies. The bore x stroke is 88mm x 62mm and compression ratio is 11.5:1. The wet clutch is a slipper item, which is a plus, and the gearbox is a six-speed unit. The exhaust system is a two-into-one with Catalytic converter and Oxygen sensors. Fuel consumption is claimed at 5.9L/100km.

Stunning scrambler styled exhaust system.

The frame is all-new and is a tubular steel trellis item with cast sideplates, the swingarm is a steel item and the wheels are spoked alloy rims with tubeless 120/70-19 and 170/60-17in tyres.
The forks are 50mm inverted items with adjustable preload, rebound and compression, with 140mm of travel up front. The rear is a single shock with preload and rebound adjustment and 140mm of travel.

The braking system is impressive, dual semi-floating 320mm stainless steel rotors with Brembo four-piston monoblock calipers at the front and a single oversized 260mm rotor with a twin piston caliper at the rear. ABS is featured as standard.

As you can see the styling is completely new compared to the Leoncino 800, with a more off roader/scrambler look, an LED headlight, TFT dash and off road seat. It also features a centrestand.

The 2020 Benelli Leoncino 800 Trail is expected to hit our shores mid 2020. Price TBA.
