Benelli Imperiale 400 Latest Updates

The 2021 Benelli Imperiale 400 has been launched in India at Rs 1.89 lakh, Rs 10,000 cheaper than the 2020 version. Wondering how Benelli managed to reduce the price? Check out our report here.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Engine

The Imperiale's BS6-compliant 374cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine may put out the same power output as before -- 21PS and 29Nm -- but it's unlikely to have any significant impact on the riding experience. The bike produces its peak power 500rpm higher than before and makes most of its torque 1000rpm earlier, at 3500rpm. The motor retains its 5-speed gearbox.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Design

There’s no change in design. The Imperiale sticks to its neo-retro styling with design cues from classic British motorcycles. You have a simple yet elegant front fender, a classic dome-shaped headlight that flows into a slender fuel tank with tank grips, and minimal graphics. Components like the turn indicators, rearview mirrors, and pillion grab handles are finished in chrome. The rear section is reminiscent of a Thunderbird but looks a bit disproportionate compared to the rest of the bike. A pair of spoked wheels complete the overall look of the bike.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Features

The BS6 Benelli Imperiale 400 isn’t exactly packed with features, but it does come with a couple of nifty bits that add to the bike's appeal. For instance, its twin-pod analogue-digital instrument console gets a neat digital fuel gauge positioned smack in between the two consoles. The console also features a gear position indicator which is considered a novelty in classic bikes.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Competitors

The Benelli Imperiale 400 BS6 primarily competes against the 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350, Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Jawa in its segment. However, if we were to consider its price, it also takes on the KTM RC 200, Royal Enfield Himalayan, Jawa Perak, and the Husqvarna twins.

What is good and bad in Imperiale 400?

  • Imperiale 400 Positives

    Refined engine with oodles of bottom-end torque, comfortable riding posture, big bike feel, gear position indicator and digital fuel gauge.

  • Imperiale 400 Negatives

    An expensive proposition, wooden brakes that lack bite and feel, odd position of the footpegs tend to hit your shins while moving the bike around.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    In our opinion, the Benelli Imperiale 400 is a wholesome package that offers a vibe-free motor full of character. Its comfortable riding posture and well-balanced suspension setup add to its riding experience. Having said that, the recent price hike due to the BS6 update has made the Imperiale 400 a rather expensive proposition.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Imperiale 400

Q. I am really confused between Benelli 400, Royal Enfield classic 350 and Jawa standard, please suggest?
  • Selecting the right bike would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, performance figures, features required, etc. The 2021 Classic 350 is an all-new bike! Everything from the motor and frame to the underpinnings and ergonomics has been reworked. Coming to the bike’s hardware, the new Classic uses a new fatter 41mm telescopic fork up front and a twin shock setup at the rear. Even the brakes have been updated to Bybre units at both ends which clamp on to a 300mm front and a 270mm rear disc brake. Moving onto the ergonomics, the Classic 350 features a new rider and pillion seat with thicker cushioning which improves ride comfort. The handlebar sits taller, offering an upright riding posture. Coming to the styling, the bike looks pretty similar to the outgoing model, however, it's been cleverly redesigned. On the other hand, the Benelli Imperiale 400 is a wholesome package that offers a vibe-free motor full of character. Its comfortable riding posture and well-balanced suspension setup add to its riding experience. Having said that, the recent price hike due to the BS6 update has made the Imperiale 400 a rather expensive proposition. Whereas, the Jawa uses a short-stroke, performance-oriented engine with a 6-speed transmission. Sure it’s fast, but it lacks the retro laidback charm of an under the square engine, something we think is crucial for a buyer in this segment. The 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine generates 26.51PS of power and 27.05Nm of torque on the Jawa. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. I need to purchase the Back wheel disc this for the Belle 400cc?
  • For that, we'd suggest you please visit the nearest authorized service center as they would be able to assist you with the exact price and availability of the spare parts.Follow the link and select your city accordingly for service centers.
  • You can get it from showroom
Q. Please tell me about the quality of the parts of Benelli Imperiale 400. Are they better than Royal Enfield?
  • For this, we would suggest you to visit the nearest dealership and take a test ride so that you can check the bike thoroughly which makes it easy for your to compare with the other options. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Bike Showrooms.
More Questions
Q. I am confused between Honda Hness CB350, Benelli Imperiale 400 and RE Meteor 350. How do you feel after purchasing H’ness 350? Is it better than those both bike?
  • In the neo-retro tourer segment, the aforementioned options offer a lot to its customers and selecting one would depend on your budget, ride quality, availability of services, seating comfort, performance, etc. In our opinion, the Benelli Imperiale 400 is a wholesome package that offers a vibe-free motor full of character. Its comfortable riding posture and well-balanced suspension setup add to its riding experience. Having said that, the recent price hike due to the BS6 update has made the Imperiale 400 a rather expensive proposition. On the other hand, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 offers healthy fuel efficiency, 10,000km oil-change intervals and 5000km/6 month service inspections which make it more endearing. The lack of oil leaks, or missing parts over our 800km stint makes the package more joyous. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. Lastly, the Honda Hness CB350 has the old-school charm with modern sensibilities, a prominent thumper exhaust note and is the most affordable bike in India to get traction control. The powerplant displaces 348cc, is air-cooled, fuel-injected and has a counterbalancer to minimise harsh vibrations that one usually associates with such a motor. With peak torque rated at 30Nm, the CB350 is the torquiest motorcycle in the class. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride.

  • I think CB 350 vs Meteor is a good decision, Himalayan has got tube tyres and if it's substituted by tubeless it's a good one. I've Honda 350 brought yesterday.
  • Don't BUY BENELLI PRODUCTS. BAD QUALITY AND WORSE SERVICE

Q. Which one is better for daily commute of 150 km .. Benelli Imperiale 400 or Himalayan AND Also what is the mileage of this two bikes?
  • Both these bikes offer a comfortable seating position and a saddle on which you can spend longer hours while commuting. Benelli Imperiale 400 is a wholesome package that offers a vibe-free motor full of character. Its comfortable riding posture and well-balanced suspension setup add to its riding experience. Having said that, the recent price hike due to the BS6 update has made the Imperiale 400 a rather expensive proposition. On the other hand, the Royal Enfield Himalayan would be a great option if occasional off-roading is your thing. However, despite the arrival of new rivals, it continues to outshine them as an all-rounder. Himalayan features spot on ergonomics for touring or standing and riding, better ground clearance, bits like switchable ABS and brilliant off-roading credentials. As of the mileage, the brand has not revealed the exact details for any of the aforementioned bikes. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

Q. Any tubeless spoke or alloy tyre options for the Imperialle 400 ? Also how soon will the spare parts be made available ? Is Benenlli Imperialle 400 worth buying over Classic 350 ?
  • No, there is no option for tubeless tyres or alloy wheels for Imperial 400 from the brand side. The Classic 350 has tremendous emotional appeal and is still in some ways a very desirable motorcycle. But the fact of the matter is that it is now a decade old, and its capabilities feel severely limited in this company. Taking all these things into consideration, there is one clear winner here, and that is the Imperiale. It might not be the most special looking motorcycle here or the best performing, but it tugs at your heartstrings every time you ride it, you’re always planning your next ride before the current one is even finished. It is the bike you most want to be on, and for that simple reason, it is our pick of this segment. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride for better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
