Limited to only 100 copies Benelli Thailand has built Imperiale 400 Retro edition for sale.
What we understand is Benelli will only sell the limited edition Imperiale 400 in Southasian countries.
The Imperiale 400 comes under the Classic category, and now it gets more Retro.
Further, the Imperiale 400 is a reinterpretation of a historical model of the Benelli-MotoBi range produced in the 1950s.
When compared with the standard Imperiale 400, the performance specs on the Retro edition remains the same. However, there are some other accessories we will take a look.
Imperial 400 gets support from a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled, single overhead camshaft SOHC.
With the 5 speed transmission the 373.5 CC motor calibrates to produce15.5 kW (20.4hp) @ 5500 rpm as max power and 29 Nm (2.95 kgm) @ 3500 rpm.
Chrome inserts accentuate this new Benelli motorcycle’s vintage style, reinforced by the round front headlight – typically retro – and the teardrop tank, which bring out the motorcycle’s true essence.
However, the Retro edition gets more accessories like the Benelli branding covers for the front suspension and the fly screen.
The practical and balanced braking system of the Imperiale 400 features a 300 mm diameter disc on the front with the two-piston floating calliper and a 240 mm disc with single-piston calliper at the rear, thus ensuring full control of the bike.
The aluminium alloy rims have different diameters: 19″ on the front end, 18″ on the back, respectively mounting 110/90 and 130/80 tyres.
The asymmetrically shaped and thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) cluster provides a more jet fighter sensation than streetfighter.
Till August 2021 for the other models, Benelli India plans to bring one model a month.
The standard Benelli Imperiale 400 starts from INR 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in India.
However, the Retro model in Thailand will cost THB 1,39,900 (INR 3.40 lakh).
