Benelli Australia & New Zealand have announced the arrival of the 502C LAMS approved cruiser, priced at $9,790 Ride Away.
The Benelli 502C is an all-new learner approved (LAMS) urban cruiser based on the brilliant Benelli parallel twin platform that makes the Leoncino and TRK models so good. We absolutely loved our long term Leoncino, Simba, and have been waiting for the cruiser version, knowing how good it could be. We will be attending the launch soon so stay tuned…
The 502C features adjustable forward mounted foot controls, wide cruiser handlebars, a low 750mm seat and a digital display dash. The LED headlight is LED and ABS is featured. The front brakes are twin four-piston radial-mount Brembo calipers with 280mm rotors, while a single piston floating caliper and 240mm rotor is featured at the back.
Tyre sizes are 120/70-17 and a fat 160/60-17 both on neat cast and machined alloy wheels. The trellis-styled frame with steel side plates emphasise the 502C’s cruiser design and the suspension is high-spec with 50mm inverted forks and rear monoshock.
The Benelli 502C features the well established in-line 500cc twin-cylindered, and liquid-cooled engine which offers a smooth and torquey power delivery with 35kW@8500rpm and 45Nm@5000rpm. Matched with a six-speed gearbox and 21L tank, it guarantees hours of effortless cruising for all roads and highways, with fuel consumption claimed at 4.2L/100km. It also meets Euro-4.
The Benelli 502C is priced at $9,790 Ride Away. More info on spec’s, colours and warranty here.
