Benelli India has received quite a good response for its middleweight ADV, the TRK 502 and the TRK 502X. The company has registered 150 bookings in 15 days since launch. That’s really commendable considering it currently has just 18 dealerships across the country. We rode the two motorcycles and found the road-biased variant to be really alluring as it ticked all the right boxes for a softroader, notwithstanding its weight.
But interestingly, more customers have booked the off-road-biased TRK 502X than the road-biased TRK 502. It speaks volumes about how more riders are interested in off-roading than just touring. Moreover, the TRK’s styling is quite aggressive and the large dimensions make the motorcycle feel like a full-sized adventure tourer. It also doesn’t have a real rival in its segment at that price point (Rs 5 lakh for the TRK 502 and Rs 5.4 lakh for the 502X, both ex-showroom, India) as the only other options are the smaller Kawasaki Versys-X 300 and the more expensive Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT. Head here for the first ride review of both TRK 502 variants. Meanwhile, here’s the press release from Benelli:
