The Bike Highlight – Benelli Leoncino 500

posted in: News 0

For this week’s Bike Highlight we look at the Benelli Leoncino 500. Originally launched in 2018, the Leoncino 500 (baby cub in Italian FYI) is a stylish blend of traditional scrambler aesthetics and modern tech.

  • Liquid-cooled 500cc twin-cylinder engine
  • 47 bhp and 45Nm of torque
  • Weight 196kg
  • Six-speed gear box
  • Pirelli Angel GT sports touring tyres
  • LED indicators and daytime running lights
  • 50mm diameter forks
  • Fuel efficient and affordable
  • ABS, Traction control
  • Max Speed – 83mph
  • LCD dash





While the addition of a plastic Lion of Pesaro on the front mudguard divides opinion, we think this stylish and contemporary motorcylce is a great, afforable option. If you’re an owner of the Leoncino 500, make sure you protect that precious dashboard with one of our screen protectors! Available to buy here.
