The 752S marks the return of Benelli in the segment of “medium-large” displacement bikes with a hard, pure naked, a guarantee of absolute fun on the road and through the curves. After being presented as a prototype at the Milan Motor Show last year, the new Benelli now comes in a definitive version, ready to be launched on the market.
It is a concrete, pragmatic, and engaging motorcycle, capable of winning over every rider from the first ride as it can guarantee absolute fun on the road. It gets a tubular steel trellis frame and will be powered by a 750 cc, DOHC, four-valve, parallel-twin engine that makes 75 bhp at 8500 rpm and 66 Nm at 6500 rpm, and is mated to a six-speed transmission. The bike complies with Euro 4 emissions and its exhaust looks interestingly arranged, with a massive resonator/catalytic converter tucked well away, leaving only a neat megaphone-shaped muffler in sight.
Taking care of suspension is a fully adjustable Marzocchi, 50mm USD fork and a 45mm preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking is handled by a Brembo system, with a four-piston caliper gripping 320 mm double semi-floating discs at the front, a single piston caliper gripping a single 250 mm diameter rear disc. The Benelli 752S sits on alloy wheels of 17-inch each that have been fitted with 120/70 -17 & 180/55 -17 tyres and has a fuel tank capacity of 14.5 litres.
The 752S will be available in three colours – green, black and white and will go on sale in Europe next year. So far, there’s no word on pricing.
