Benelli Leon­cino

47bhp | 170kg | Seat height 815mm

Benelli’s Chi­nese own­ers are bring­ing back a fa­mous name – the Leon­cino. A trade­mark steel trel­lis frame houses an all-new twin-cylin­der four-stroke, liq­uid-cooled, 500cc en­gine made by Benelli. The new unit de­liv­ers a claimed 47bhp – mak­ing this A2-li­cence com­pli­ant in the UK – and 33.2ftlb torque. There’s a fat 50mm fork up front, and a monoshock at the rear. All this makes for an at­trac­tively-styled retro street scram­bler that’s bound to at­tract at­ten­tion wher­ever you go. It should be cheap, too.
