The Benelli Leoncino Scrambler has been spied for the first time by one of our readers. This bike is scheduled to be launched next month. The Benelli Leoncino is a 500 cc twin-cylinder motorcycle. It has the same engine that also powers the TRK 502, which was expected to be launched this year, but will now be launched next year. The Leoncino will be an affordable middleweight scrambler that will be in a league of its own. Benelli will launch the on-road version of this bike in India. However, this bike will be capable of some light off-roading. What is the Benelli Leoncino all about?

We reckon this bike should be displayed at the 2018 Auto Expo. We aren’t certain if Benelli is participating in the event, but the new bike will be coming in sometime around it. Benelli wants to add more bikes to its portfolio and this could be a good option. The company is also considering to get a scooter brand as well. Should you buy it? This new bike was spotted on the test by one of our readers Dr. Patil any Pune. This is where the company is based. Read further to know more.
