The TRK 502 and the TRK 502X adventure tourer motorcycles' prices in India have been recently altered by the Italian bikemaker Benelli. Both motorcycles now cost Rs 25,000 more than they previously did. Following the latest hike, the asking price of the 2023 Benelli TRK 502 now stands at Rs 5.85 lakh, whereas that of the Benelli TRK 502X is Rs 6.35 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, India. It is important to keep in mind that costs have increased by about a lakh on the TRK 502 series since the BS6 updated version of the bike was launched in the Indian market with a price tag of Rs 4.80 lakh (ex-showroom). Nevertheless, costs for motorcycles have increased across the board. For those unaware, the Adishwar Auto Ride India (AARI) facility is located close to Hyderabad, where the model is locally assembled and sold. The TRK 502 range is imported into the nation as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) unit.
