The Benelli Leoncino is a scrambler-style concept showcased at the 2015 EICMA show in Milan, Italy. Looks are typical scrambler, as seems to be the rage across the world these days. The Leoncino is a similar exercise - retro looks combined with modern technology. The concept Leoncino comes kitted out with a LED headlight, knobby tyres and a 500cc parallel twin engine.
The Benelli Leoncino is expected to hit production next year and DSK Motowheels, which markets and sells Benelli bikes in India, has confirmed that the Leoncino will be launched in India in late 2016. The 500cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine produces 47bhp power and 45Nm of torque. The Leoncino's engine is mounted on a streel trellis frame with wire-spoke wheels - 19-inch at the front and a 17-inch at the rear.
