Benelli TRK 251 Adventure Motorcycle Debuts at EICMA 2017

0

The Benelli TRK 251 seems to be inspired by the TRK 502. There are good chances that DSK Benelli will launch this adventure motorcycle in India

The new Benelli TRK 251 is an all-new adventure motorcycle that has been put on a show at the EICMA 2017. In essence, it’s a smaller sibling of the TRK 501 (by the way, half of 502 is 251). The new motorcycle is built around a steel tube trestle chassis and promises to be very capable off the road and in really rough riding conditions. The company goes on to insist that the engine has been tuned to be very grunty in challenging conditions and yet very relaxed on highway runs. The new TRK 251 has good chances of making it to the Auto Expo 2018.
