The TRK really looks and rides like a bigger bike

Verdict – The Benelli TRK 502 is a road going tourer in its pure sense while the 502X adds to some off-road capabilities. It is not a pure off-roader, it is just an addition of hardware which will help it get through where the 502 might get stuck. For the price and the road presence these motorcycles have, they are quite appealing while the exhaust note is just a cherry on the cake. The only thing that would bother owners is the weight and the dependability for after-sales. The headlight might not be the best but an adventure tourer is a canvas that can take on things as per the need. Benelli is finally back with 2 beautiful motorcycles and if touring is the priority, the TRK 502 gives it all.

What’s Cool

* Massive road presence which leads to a lot of attention
* Riding dynamics are perfect, the handling is feedback rich
* Quite affordable, gives the other parallel-twins tough rivalry

What’s Not So Cool

* Gets a very basic instrument cluster
* Headlight illumination isn’t the best
* Engine performance could have been more punchy

There’s something that these motorcycles have that steals the show!
