A year after its first appearance in the shows, the Benelli Trek 502 back in 2017 in a more complete version. This small trail to stay well on account of time in the air seduced for a well positioned rate.
Not to approve a track all-terrain in their current range. If the reference is still and always the BMW R 1200 GS, there are other ways of test the track, and so sometimes couillue. Benelli has understood well before no one that had proposed Watts by greater and the sport almost evil with the 1130 Tre-K. He name does not fall in the oblivion and offers a new form with this urgent 502 TRK. A wiser version of big brother? No, a whole new gear. Who does not claim his grandfather heartburn and taking into account other segments, especially A2 permission.?
Fashion to the higher trails that attract the interest of all manufacturers and Benelli is no exception. The manufacturer of Pesaro, which is now owned by the Chinese Jiang Qiang, continuing its development in the midst of displacement. Presented at the EICMA Show in Milan in 2015, the Trek 502 returns this year with some improvements. The look is intended for imposing mixture between a Multistrada Ducati and BMW R 1200 GS, two Queens in the category of great trails. For the 502 Trek, the visual impression is rewarding. face wide, lateral large spoonfuls and large tank finally contrasts slightly with the mechanics of medium size. The engine is identical to the presented last year. This is one of two cylinders 499 cm3 DOHC liquid-cooled, that develops online 47.6 HP, enough to enter the A2 permission box.
Of course, mechanics complies with Euro 4 standards without the power and torque are adversely affected. As the Trek 502 submitted this year this is in partial cycle change substantially, in particular with respect to the front axle. The new adjustable inverted fork with 50 mm diameter is now associated with 4 piston radial mounted calipers to boot disks mm two 320, equipped with ABS series. The suspensions are a clearance of 135 mm happen almost everywhere. Benelli still relies on a steel tube frame. Comfort should be the appointment. Scheduled for long journeys, the Trek 502 has an upright position, a great bubble and the forearm. With its 20 liters tank, we imagine a remarkable autonomy given the small displacement engine and therefore his alleged lack of appetite.
For those who want to carry too much luggage, the Trek 502 has an optional kit of luggage side panniers and top box. Two versions of the machine will be available at the beginning of 2017, since, together with the basic model of the road equipped with 17-inch aluminum wheels, a variation more “adventurous” with spoked rims of 19-inch front and 17 on the back will also be offered. Benelli Trek 502 will be available in three colors: white, black or red, at a price that you can guess being around €6,500 for the standard. It is a main goal of the Honda CB 500 X, which is on display at €6.199.
