The all-new production-ready Benelli 752S has been unveiled officially at a media press conference. The 752S Concept made its global premiere at the EICMA 2017.
The design of the Benelli 752S is precisely similar to the concept model. The company has opted for angular lines rather than aggressive aesthetics, and it works well. The 752S is built around a tubular steel trellis chassis along with a separate sub-frame.
Upfront, there are vertically stacked twin-projector LED headlights with horizontally placed DRLs. Behind the headlamp is the all-digital colour TFT LCD display for the instrument cluster. The Benelli 752S features a muscular fuel tank and a single-piece step-up seat. The bike comes with a short front mudguard and a rear tyre hugger with a number plate holder.
Powering the Benelli 752S is an all-new 750 cc, parallel-twin, 8-valve, liquid-cooled engine that is capable of pumping out a maximum power of 77 bhp at 8500 rpm while developing a peak torque of 67 Nm at 6500 rpm. A six-speed transmission works in harmony with the twin-cylinder motor.
Suspension hardware comprises 50 mm Marzocchi upside down forks at the front with 117 mm wheel travel and a preload adjustable mono-shock at the back with 45 mm travel. Anchoring duties are shouldered by twin 320 mm semi-floating front discs at the front with four-piston callipers and a single 260 mm rotor at the back.
The 752S comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels at both the ends that pair with 120-section front and 180-section rear tubeless tyres. The motorcycle tips the weighing scales with a kerb weight of 228 kg, while it comes with a fuel tank capacity of 14.5 litres.
There are high chances that Mahavir Group, Benelli’s partner in India, will launch the bike in India. If launched, the 752S will rival the Ducati Monster 797 and the Kawasaki Z650.
