During the recently concluded 2022 Makina Moto Show, Benelli officially launched the Leoncino 800 Trail in the local market.   The neo-retro scrambler, which was recently launched alongside a number of other new Benelli models, boasts a lot of interesting features, the new 800cc engine being the most noteworthy. The new model, which as a result offers better performance and functionality, appears to be a serious competitor in the hugely popular retro-style scrambler category.

A side-exit dual exhaust system, a 19-inch front tire, and a side plate with flat-track styling are included with the Benelli Leoncino 800 Trail. The class-leading engine from Benelli powers the new motorcycle. The 754cc liquid-cooled four-stroke twin-cylinder engine produces 49 ft-lbs of torque and 76.2 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. It has a twin 43 mm-diameter throttle body, two overhead camshafts, and four valves per cylinder. It also includes a 6-speed transmission and a slipper clutch.

The Leoncino 800's characteristic steel trellis frame has been improved and strengthened to better accommodate its new engine and performance. Furthermore, suspension has been enhanced. It sports a hefty inverted fork with 148mm of travel and 50mm struts. The seat is 834 mm above the ground as a result of the rear monoshock's 140 mm of travel. The 120/70/19" front and 170/60/17" rear knobby dual-purpose tires of the Leoncino 800 Trail provide traction both on and off road. While the rear brakes have 260 mm discs and a single-piston caliper, the front brakes have twin 320 mm discs and radially mounted calipers.

When it comes to tech features, the Leoncino 800 Trail gets a full-color TFT screen and a full LED headlight, giving it a distinctive neo-retro look. In the local market, this middleweight scrambler fetches a rather attractive price tag of P519,000, undercutting its rivals from Triumph, Ducati, and BMW by a substantial margin.
