Priced at Rs 4.80 lakh, the BS6 Benelli TrK 502 is over Rs 30,000 cheaper than the outgoing BS4 model. The updated TrK also gets some new features like backlit switchgear and more
Although a little late to join the party, Benelli has now updated its second motorcycle to meet the BS6 emission norms. Benelli brought in the BS6 Imperiale 400 in July 2020, and they have now introduced the cleaner TrK 502. The middleweight adventure tourer has been launched at an introductory price of Rs 4.80 lakh, making it over Rs 30,000 cheaper than before. What remains to be seen is how long Benelli continues with this introductory price.
Changes on the 2021 TrK 502 include new aluminium reinforced knuckle guards, powder-coated handlebar with revised grips and redesigned mirrors. The BS6 TrK now gets a white background for the tachometer and an orange backlight for the digital display. Additionally, the switchgear not gets white backlight as well. Benelli has also revised the seat cushion and made it wider for enhanced comfort.
Powering the TrK 502 is the same 500cc parallel-twin motor that develops 47bhp and 46Nm. The TrK comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. In fact, aside from the aforementioned features and cosmetic updates, everything else about the bike remains largely unchanged. The suspension components are identical – USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking duties also continue to be performed by twin 320mm discs at the front and a 260mm disc at the rear.
Benelli offers a three-year unlimited kilometres warranty with the TrK 502. The company has only introduced the road-biased version and there is no official confirmation on the 502X as of now.
