superb in style and every way

True to its name, the classic Benelli Imperiale 400 offers a thrilling riding journey to the owners. It provides an impressive fusion of good performance and functionality for all. I admire its powerful engine, with which it ensures a reliable drive through for city commute while maintaining the fuel efficiency at its best. Its fuel tank capacity is good. In-built with safety elements, it assures safety and ease on the road. The bike has a sleek finish design and is compact and spacy at the same time.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Pros and Cons

Imperiale 400 Positives Points: Refined engine with oodles of bottom-end torque, comfortable riding posture, big bike feel, gear position indicator and digital fuel gauge.

Imperiale 400 Negatives Points: 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.

Zigwheels 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.

Rider footrest

4.2

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.

Comfortable cruisers

It is one of the most comfortable cruisers that I’ve owned to date. Wonderful riding posture, Minimal or almost no vibrations at over 100kmph, A beautiful console to look at while riding, a Neat and clean paint job and most importantly! pretty dedicatedly assembled motorbike which is a delight to a rider's eye. (bhp and torque are the two totally out of syllabus subjects) the main concern that I have with Benelli is their service, I live in Guwahati, Assam and the dealer here is running an entire service station with just one mechanic and that too an amateur.The only thing they seem to know is an oil change and replacement of parts and the strangest of’em all is that you can’t purchase any parts and service on your own, not even the engine oil. My bike’s running a mileage of 20 to 22 km and they couldn’t figure out the reason why !!!! without proper after-sales service, i don’t believe any company could survive this forever-growing competitive market of motorbikes no matter how good is the product.

For me it was love

4.2

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.

Real treat

This bike is a real treat to ride, It's quite robusta and it's road presence is next level.It's exhaust sound is music to the ears and it cruise at 90-100 kmph without any effort.Challenges: 1.No service center in many cities where they have sold their bikes and shut down showrooms.2.Heating issue: engine produces immense heat, Its very difficult to ride during summers.3.Pillion seat is real uncomfortable, Very difficult to cover even 50 km.

Bike is good. But Technicians

2.2

Bike is good.But technicians who do the servicing of bike those guys are worst.Average cost of servicing is around 8000-10000 but still the problem persist.Facing problem in aundh pune service center.This makes this bike worst.Don't buy this one.You buys this bike and keep paying 10k every month.Reason my bike km is 25000.I use to get the same feedback everytime.I think that is the life of this bike.

Worst material

Bellini imperial 400 bike made with worst material.All the parts quickly rust, Spare parts also damage quickly.Example wheel spoke damage with in a month, Clutch damage with low kilometer running etc.Simply said it is not worth to buy the product.Benelli customer service also not response.Spare parts also very high cost.

Benelli Imperiale 400Writing

3.8

Benelli imperiale 400 writing this review after 5 months and 4500 km.No doubt about the quality and riding comfort up to speeds of 120kmph.However, The mileage promised 32-35 kmpl during the sale is nowhere close to the real-time mileage of 20 kmpl in city rides.Ground clearance is also extremely low and hits the humps without pillion rider also.I have visited the service center twice in the last 5 months but no proper resolution yet.Also on my 1st free service, I was charged rs 2300.This puts me in dilemma whether to continue with this bike or go for others with good mileage and proper after sales support.

Love the bike, as long as

Love the bike, As long as you are in a city that has the service center.This is the best bike riding experience, Not gonna lie, There isn’t a very awesome starting thump, Like in sports bikes or jawa, But then once it crosses 100, The smoothness is uncomparable, And the weight stops being an issue right after 30kmph.Turning radius a bit too much, But that is expected from a mammoth of a vehicle that it is.Road presence is exemplary.
