Benelli have unveiled their all new TRK 800. The new model builds on the TRK range using the engine from their Leoncino 800. Check out all the details below... Press Release: Benelli
Benelli have recently uncovered the TRK 800, the brand new adventure bike from the manufacturer based in Pesaro, designed to take on any type of trip, guaranteeing maximum comfort and fun both on and off the road. Check out the release from EICMA.
Benelli say the TRK 800 is a bike born in the Benelli Style Centre and developed by the R&D department of the House of the Leoncino in Pesaro, where the headquarters and the heart of the company are located. A bike launched on Benelli’s 110th anniversary, representing the beginning of a new chapter in the Italian brand’s history.

They also say it’s a motorcycle that further extends the TRK range, joining the Pesaro-based manufacturer’s best-seller, the TRK 502X, offering the user a new agile and manageable motorcycle with a modern and refined style, powered by a 754cc engine.
The design of the TRK 800 features fluid, sinuous and strongly contemporary lines, which combine with elegant and refined surfaces. Keeping the family feeling of the TRK range, Benelli have attempted to take some of the styling queues from the 500 model, such as the front end and the front mudguard, which here are more tapered and dynamic, the double-arched headlights, which in the TRK 800 we find full LED with DRL, and the muscular nature of the bike, which is expressed here with a new proportion of volumes.
The 754cc twin-cylinder, four-stroke engine is liquid cooled and is the same as the one mounted in Leoncino 800, with 76.2hp(56kW)@8500rpm and 67Nm@6500rpm, in order to ensure fun and performance in any condition. It features double overhead camshaft with four-valves per cylinder and 43mm diameter dual throttle-bodies. The torque-assisted wet slipper clutch and six-speed gearbox are also worth mentioning.
The chassis is based on a tubular trellis frame with a high-strength steel plate, designed to ensure the rider maximum agility and comfort in all conditions, even on long journeys. The bike’s ergonomics have been carefully considered down to the smallest detail, to easily accommodate both rider and passenger with side and top cases, ensuring a comfortable, intuitive riding position. [Weighing in at 226kg, we are concerned it may have the same issues as the 752 S we reviewed – Ed]
The suspension on the front ensures comfort on or off the road thanks to a Marzocchi upside-down fork with 50mm legs – adjustable in rebound, compression and spring preload with 170mm travel. On the back is an aluminium swingarm with central monoshock adjustable for spring preload and hydraulic rebound damping and a travel of 53mm (171mm at the wheel). Great care has been taken with the aerodynamic protection thanks to a large adjustable fairing, hand guards and baffles, which provide perfect protection. Maximum attention was also paid to comfort, thanks to a slim, spacious seat, the comfortable, sturdy crown passenger grab handles and standard central stand.
This new bike also features an easy-to-use, intuitive dashboard, equipped with a high-resolution 7in colour TFT display. The performance of the Brembo braking system is ensured by the double 320mm diameter semi-floating disc on the front and four-piston calliper, and a 260mm diameter disc on the back with a single-piston calliper. The 19in front and 17in rear aluminium alloy rims respectively mount 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 Pirelli tyres.
Benelli TRK 800 will be available at all Benelli dealers starting from the second half of 2022. The price is yet to be determined.
