Benelli, one of Italy’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers now owned by Qianjiang Group in China, unveiled a new entry-level bike – the BN 302 . The Bike is based on the bigger Benelli BN 600 . It is aimed mainly for the younger riders .

From what we see the the Bike is Slim,  light and realyy gorgeous. The Makers claim the bike to be really agile and Fun to Drive . They also claim it is maximum optimised for driving in congested city Traffic . If the claims are true , we only wonder why they are not bringing the bike to India where this bike would have been really handy
  



The BN 302 engine  is  twin cylinder , 4-stroke,  fuel injected (electronic)  with overhead double camshaft and 4 valves.  It produces a maximum power of 37 Hp (27 kW) at 11500 rpm  and a maximum torque of 27 Nm (2.75 kgm) at  9000 rpm. Completing the list is Wet sump lubrication, oil bath 

clutch, 6-speed transmission with chain final drive.The suspension system is entrusted to an inverted hydraulic damping shock absorber front fork ø 41mm and to a rear swingarm in steel pipes with rear shock absorber and spring preload adjustment. 

The braking system of Benelli BN302 is performed by the  twin disc of  260 mm at front, and in the rear a single  disc of 240 mm. The tyre are 120/70 and 160/60 in size and 17 inch alloys are used . The tank has a great capacity of 16 Litres 

The bike seem’s to be perfect for Indian condition . But Benelli at the moment doesn’t have plans to bring it here . After its launch it has been gathering lot of enquiries and hype ,especially from the Indian audience .We believe that there is genuine market for such a bike and Only hope Benelli  changes there mind .
