Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which one is best Benelli TRK 502 or Versys 650?
  • I think, there was a comparison video done by Overdrive.. Check in YouTube. Being a Versys 650 owner, I would not prefer TRK502 due to its weight, under power engine, reliability issues and past history of the brand Benelli in India. You must look between V-Strom 650 and Versys 650 if you are in market to buy one.
  • At present, it would not be possible to provide a fruitful comparison as the TRK 502 is yet to be launched. So we would suggest you to wait till the brand reveals the complete details of the TRK 502. Stay tuned.

  • well Dad jus surprised me with this bike..will have to go and see

    Benjamin Louganis few weeks ago
  • Easily the best long distance on-the-road touring machine in India. Amazing value for money :) Completed 30,000km and still in love with the motorcycle!

    Karthikeyan Haldurai few weeks ago
  • comfort bike for long tour, band adventure

    Suresh Mote few weeks ago
  • Its a very good touring machine mostly tarmac friendly.The stock tyres are useless so as the stock headlight.The seat height is the biggest concern also the seat is wide which makes more comfort but flat footing both side impossible for anyone below 5.10.The ride quality and comfort is wonderful and i wish it had traction control which will make is a good allrounder.I can tell you that versys is one of the best touring bike currently available in market at this price band.If someone is looking for a good tourer for road use then versys is the best bet and if you are looking for bit of off-road then v-storm 650 looks better.

  • Happy with the bike because it takes you places, pushes you to corners, and does a bit of everything that you expect. Brings a smile to my face everytime I ride it. Gives me a feeling of everlasting love for it after every ride.

  • I enjoy the classic look of the bike and the way it handles on the country lanes. A classic looking bike with lots of technology as well.It is amazing how many people approach me and talk about the bike, normally with stories of old Triumph bikes that owned many years ago.
