Expect the Benelli 502c to be launched soon as bookings have begun

Benelli India has began accepting bookings for its 502c cruiser which is set to be introduced soon in the market.

Customers can book the motorcycle either online or at Benelli’s authorised dealerships by paying a token amount of Rs. 10,000/-.

To be available with a choice of 2 colour options – Glossy Black and Matte Cognac Red – the cruiser bike comes with styling that has been, to put it mildly, heavily inspired by the Ducati Diavel.
