Benelli launched an affordable neo-retro motorcycle for the Indian market – “Benelli Leoncino 250”.

The all-new Benelli Leoncino 250 is launched at Rs. 2.5 lakh. The Leoncino 250 is a compact, authentic motorcycle that comes in contemporary style with the edgy character and innovative lines typical of the Leoncino range. The 250cc Leoncino is a blend of heritage, design and innovation, typical of the rest of the family from the historic Pesaro-based brand.

Benelli India is offering the Leoncino 250 with ‘3-Year Unlimited Kilometre Warranty as Standard’*. Customers can book the Benelli Leoncino 250 for Rs. 6,000 (Fully refundable), by logging onto or by visiting the nearest Benelli India Dealership.

The Leoncino 250 is available in 4 colours – White, Grey, Red and Brown.


The Benelli Leoncino 250 comes with a single-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, 249cc engine. The bike features double overhead camshaft with 4-valves per cylinder, electronic fuel injection with a 37mm throttle body and a 6-speed gearbox. Maximum power and torque are respectively 25.8 PS at 9250rpm and 21Nm at 8000rpm.

Highlighting the contemporary design of the Leoncino 250, the steel tube trellis frame fits perfectly with the tank design, offering balanced and dynamic surfaces, as does the tail guard which is extremely compact. The full-LED headlight assembly is completely redesigned, in comparison to the Leoncino 500, its elder sibling. The instrument panel is digital and clearly visible in all conditions. Like its elder sibling, the Leoncino 250 features a proud, laser-cut Lion on the front mudguard, recalling the history of this model. 

The suspension of the Leoncino 250 consists of a 41mm upside-down fork on the front, while the back-end has a swinging arm with a pre-load adjustable monoshock.

The braking system includes a 280mm floating disc with a four-piston caliper on the front and a 240mm disc with a single-piston floating caliper at the back with Dual-Channel ABS. The 17″ aluminium alloy rims mount 110/70-R17 and 150/60-R17 tyres at the front and rear respectively, ensuring maximum road safety.
