Benelli TRK 251 price in india

After a week of announcing the commencement of bookings for the TRK 251 adventure tourer, Benelli has finally launched the motorcycle in India. With the Benelli TRK251, the Italian brand is making a comeback to the quarter-litre segment, which it had left after discontinuing the Leoncino 250 during the transition to BS6 norms.

Price and Colours

The Benelli TRK 251 has been launched in a single variant, the price of which has been set at Rs 2.51 lakh (ex-showroom, India). There are two colour options in which the adventure tourer will be available, white and black. This price positions it as a direct rival to the KTM Adventure 250. In addition, it will also compete with the slightly more affordable Royal Enfield Himalayan.


The Benelli TRK 251 looks like a scaled-down version of the bigger middleweight adventure tourer, the TRK 502. While it looks compact as compared to the TRK 502, the TRK 251 is still a tall and big motorcycle for its segment. The motorcycle gets a dual-LED projector setup with daytime running LEDs in a semi-fairing with a transparent windscreen above it.

The Benelli TRK 251 also gets LED turn indicators integrated into the large tank shrouds, a muscular looking 18-litre fuel tank, multi-spoke alloy wheels, split seats, large luggage carrier, LED tail lamp and rear turn indicators and a rear tyre hugger. There is a full LCD instrument console that reads out speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, gear indicator, odometer and trip meters.

Engine and Transmission

Powering the Benelli TRK 251 is a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 250cc engine, which is the same engine that was present in the Leoncino 250. However, this time, the engine is in the BS6 state of tune and makes a maximum power output of 26 PS and a maximum torque output of 21.2 Nm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.


The Benelli TRK 251 is based on a steel trellis frame and gets a suspension combination of upside-down telescopic forks with 135mm travel at the front and an adjustable mono-shock with 60mm travel at the rear. For bringing the motorcycle to a halt, there are petal disc brakes at both ends, which are coupled with a dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle weighs 164 kg and has a seat height of 800mm and a ground clearance of 170mm. The presence of alloy wheels and road-biased soft compound tyres suggest that it is not an all-out off-roader like the Himalayan, but a highway tourer like the Adventure 250.

Future launches from Benelli

The next motorcycle which will come from the house of Benelli is the TRK 502X, which is a more off-road focused variant of the already available TRK 502. It is also believed that the Leoncino 250 will make a comeback to the Indian two-wheeler market, considering that the Euro-5 version of the motorcycle recently made its global debut and its engine has already made way in the TRK 251.
