Benelli Leoncino Trail to arrive in August
Designed by Centrostile studio in Pesaro Italy, the Leoncino Trail brings to life a spirited scrambler instantly recognisable by its simplified sporty posture and knobby tyres with spoked rims, running a larger 19″ front wheel.

Other features including the LED technology used in the front light, digital instrumentation and stamped Centrostile logo on the exhaust and engine, remind you of the quality components used in the new model.
On the road or on gravel, the Leoncino Trail benefits from the original Leoncino’s stable trellis chassis and adjustable suspension. Braking is achieved effortlessly with switchable ABS backed by large double 320mm front disc brakes and 260mm rear disc brake.
Rolling on the throttle, you are reminded of the Benelli’s soul in the form of a parallel twin cylinder 500 cc that rasps with a charismatic exhaust note. Whilst getting all traction down on road comes easy with knobby Pirelli Scorpion tyres, managed by a smooth six-speed gearbox.
Whatever the road you choose, the Leoncino Trail will take you further. The Leoncino Trail will be available in authorised Benelli Dealerships in August 2018 in red, silver and black, and will come standard with a two-year warranty and two-year customer care program for $9590 rideaway.
