The Benelli TRK 251 will be BS6 compliant and will compete against the BMW G 310 GS and RE Himalayan.
Benelli recently launched the TRK 502 and TRK 502X at Rs. 5 lakhs and Rs 5.40 lakhs respectively (ex-showroom, India). The company plans to introduce as many as five models in the Indian motorcycle market in 2019. The next launch would be of the road-focused Leoncino 500 and the off-road spec Leoncino 500 Trail.
Apart from these bikes, the Italian company is also going to launch the TRK 251 in India by the end of this year. The Benelli TRK 251 made its debut at the 2018 EICMA in Milan and was displayed at the Thai Motor Expo 2018. The bike displayed at the events was a single-cylinder, 249cc engine that was similar to the Benelli TNT 25. But, the company is working on an engine that will be BS6 compliant to follow the rules laid by the government.
The Benelli TRK 251 will face stiff competition by the BMW G 310 GS, Royal Enfield Himalayan and the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure. The TRK 251 will be a budget off-road spec bike and will be one of the five new models Benelli has proposed to launch in India this year.
