The Leoncino features a scrambler design with modern underpinnings.

The neo retro scrambler draws power from a 499.6cc in-line two cylinder DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. It is capable of developing 47.5 PS of power at 8,500 rpm and 45 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. The Euro 4 engine pairs with a 6-speed transmission. Benelli has derived the powerplant from the TRK 502.
