The Benelli Leoncino 500 has silently received a price hike. The twin-cylinder “street scrambler” from the Chinese-owned Italian company has become INR 10,000 costlier.
The Benelli Leoncino 500 received its BS6 updated in February 2021. The less polluting version of the motorcycle was launched at an introductory price of INR 4,59,900 for the Steel Grey colour option whereas the Leoncino Red paint scheme retailed at INR 4,69,900. Now, with the recent price hike, both liveries have become INR 10,000 more expensive.
So now the Benelli Leoncino 500 in its Steel Grey shade will set you back by INR 4,69,900 and, on the other hand, the Leoncino Red colour option costs INR 4,79,900. Apart from the price revision, no other changes have been made to the motorcycle.
