It's Official: Benelli TRK 502 to Launch in India on February 18

Benelli has officially confirmed that they will launch the TRK adventure motorcycle in India on February 18, 2019. The TRK series has two motorcycles: 502 and 502X. The TRK 502 is a dual purpose adventure tourer bike while the TRK 502X is more off-road focused with wire-spoke wheels and a different set of tyres. After the official launch, the motorcycle would be competing with other adventure bikes in India including the Kawasaki Versys 650, Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, and the SWM SuperDual T.

The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle is equipped with an analogue-digital instrument console which looks a bit outdated in comparison to the current-gen all-digital consoles. TRK 502 is expected to get a starting price tag of around INR 5 lakhs (ex-showroom), while the 502X is expected to be priced slightly higher in comparison to the standard variant.
