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 Price

The price of Benelli Imperiale 400 starts at Rs. 1.89 Lakh and goes upto Rs. 1.93 Lakh. Benelli Imperiale 400 is offered in 3 variants - Silver, Red and the top variant Imperiale 400 Black which comes at a price tag of Rs. 1.93 Lakh.

Imperiale 400 Specifications

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.

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.

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 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.

Editor's View of Benelli Imperiale 400

  • Upside

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

  • Downside

    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.

  • Our Verdict

    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.

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.

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.

    I had test ride with heavy weight plum pillion rider. Didn't cross 60km/hr speed. Posting some pros & cons in my view.PROS-- looks are super nice to fall in love with it. Handling is vert comfortable & good. The sitting comfort is excellent. Engine is super smooth. Suspension is too nice. Breaking is also good. Pickup is good. Its heavy but weight isn't felt while riding. Overall built quality & design is excellent. CONS--The major issue is engine heat. Heat isn't noticed when bike is in motion. But when its halted we can actually feel the heat on calf & thighs. The gear shift lever is too long for mid size shoe & heal shift lever is absent. There is no place for tool kit storage. the rider footrest is large & comfortable but its much extended outward which keeps brushing & hitting the calf. The pillion seat is independent but there is no option to detach it. The company doesn't provide optional backrest for pillion rider as accessories. Don't know about its fuel economy & service cost & aftersales service.

    For me it was love at first sight. I saw the ad on Facebook and fell for it. I was eagerly waiting for the price to be announced and booked the red one the same day. After more than three months' of waiting I got my hands on the bike on 6th of February. The first thing that struck me during the test-ride was the refinement and absolute quality. The engine offers quite powerful performance and urges you to twist the grip further. Ride quality is excellent. The bike is more suited for long highway rides but it handles quite well in city traffic, except for the slightly large turning radius. The retro looks are simply amazing. I am still in the process of running-in the engine, so I can only say that mileage is in excess of 30 kmpl. The exhaust has a muted roar that is so thrilling both on the highways as well as the city roads. Engine heat is a real problem and I hope it will reduce after the running-in period. 06/03/2020:I got back the bike after the first free service at 1000 kms and the service charge was a mere Rs. 1365. I need to go for a ride and check whether the engine heat has been reduced. I was told by the Service manager that it will come down since the engine oil has been changed from the normal to a synthetic one.

    This is a good looking retro cruiser. The ride is smooth and vibration free. It also feels more powerful than the RE Classic 350, despite similar numbers on paper. It has many additional features such as hazard lights, great indicator and fuel indicator. It has a fuel injected engine. It is in its element in long Highway rides. You can ride it at 100 miles am hour ago day long, without breaking a sweat. Once Benelli puts more service centers in place, this one would be hard to beat. However, the very reason it is such a pleasure to ride on the highway, becomes a bit problematic in the city. Is heavy weight of 205 kgs makes it difficult to get in and out of cramped parking spots. It is definitely a head Turner. When I am stopped at a light, people always ask questions- what is it? How much does it cost? And most importantly, kitna deti hain?

    please avoid this bike in all cases. the only and the main issue with this bike is engine heat. it's unbearable and you cannot drive in city conditions. no reviewers mention this. idiots they are. always telling the same things again and again being diplomatic. my request never go for this. you will regret your whole life.
