New Benelli BN 251
BE A RIDER @ $4990 RIDEAWAY
Benelli Australia is pleased to announce that the all new BN 251 has arrived!
The BN 251 plays tribute to Benelli’s heritage of creating smaller capacity motorcycles that customers have enjoyed in the past, by offering a lightweight sporty 250 cc naked motorcycle at exceptional value. Styled like its bigger siblings, it is the perfect entry level motorcycle, delivering excellent fuel economy, agile performance and easy to ride characteristics.
The seat height of 795 mm and 159 kg kerb weight ensure easy handling and manoeuvrability, and its 17 L fuel tank capacity means long distances are enjoyed between refuels.
Powering the BN 251 is a fuel injected liquid cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke DOHC engine, developing 25 hp (18.5 kW) at 9000 rpm and 21.5 Nm (2.2 kgm) @ 7500 rpm.
The over-engineered steel trestle styled frame incorporates the engine as a stressed member, further adding to the rigidity of the chassis. The suspension benefits by having an upside-down 41 mm front forks giving 120 mm of travel and a centrally located shock absorber on the rear swing arm, to take care of rough road surfaces whilst instilling confidence in its riders.
Braking is taken care of with Benelli’s own 280 mm front wave disc matched with a 4-piston caliper and the rear is a 240 mm single wave disc with a double piston caliper using steel braided brake lines. 17” aluminium alloy rims finish off the sporty look and add to the impressive handling.
Benelli will also be simultaneously releasing a range of accessories to enable the BN 251 to be customised to its owner’s taste with CNC machined items that include foldable clutch and brake levers, brake oil reservoir cap, and a variety of other parts such as crash knobs, handlebar mounts and heel guards to further enhance the already sporty looks.
Offered in three colour combinations, red, white and black, the learner approved BN 251 represents exceptional value with two years warranty at only $4990 rideaway.
