Benelli India offers the TRK 502 in India in two variants. One is the standard TRK 502, which is the road-going model and the other is the TRK 502X, which is the off-road biased version of the motorcycle.
The Benelli TRK 502 is built on a Trellis frame and gets a tall, imposing stance. As far as size is concerned, it is almost comparable to bigger ADVs such as the Triumph Tiger 800 and Ducati Multistrada 950. There is a half-fairing in play with a typical ADV-style beak like protrusion, twin headlamps and a big windscreen along with knuckle protectors. The muscular fuel tank is also practical, with a 20-litre capacity. Along with looking big, it is also heavy, tipping the scales at 235 kg, which is equal to or more than bigger adventure bikes. The tail lamps and turn indicators are LED units and the motorcycle gets a part digital instrument console. The rider seat height is 800 mm on the TRK 502 and 840 mm on the TRK 502X. The TRK 502X of course gets more ground clearance at 220 mm while the TRK 502 has a ground clearance of 190 mm.
The bikes get a 50 mm USD forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, which is adjustable for pre- load. Also, there are twin 320 mm discs up front with radial callipers and a single 260 mm disc at the rear, with a standard dual-channel ABS on offer, which can be switched off if need be. The road- biased TRK 502 will have alloy wheels, road-spec tyres and the suspension travel will be a little less. While the off-road biased TRK 502X will be shod with spoked wheels, off-road spec tyres and a slightly longer suspension travel at the rear.
The Benelli TRK 502 and the TRK 502X get a 500 cc parallel-twin motor which is liquid-cooled and makes 47 bhp at 8,500 rpm along with 46 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Power to the rear wheel is sent via a 6-speed gearbox and the company also offers a hydraulically actuated clutch, which makes life easier for the rider. Benelli says that the TRK 502 has a claimed fuel efficiency of 25.6 kmpl which means that the claimed range on the fuel tank is approximately 450 kilometres. The Benelli TRK 502 is priced at Rs. 5 lakh while the Benelli TRK 502X is priced at Rs. 5.4 lakh.
