In the beginning Benelli manufactured affordable small cc motorcycles for everyone to own and enjoy.

Powering the BN 251 is a liquid cooled single cylinder, 4-stroke DOHC Benelli engine developing 24.5 hp (18 kW) at 9000 rpm and 21 Nm (2,14 kgm) @ 7000 rpm.
The steel trestle frame incorporates the engine as a stress member further adding to the rigidity of the chassis. The suspension is also over engineered with an up-side down ø 41mm front fork and on the rear swing arm, a centrally located shock absorber takes care of irregular road surfaces.
Getting on the brakes is easy with Benellis own ø 280 mm front disc with a 4 piston caliper and at the rear a ø 240 mm single disc with a double piston caliper. The 17” aluminium alloy rims finish off the sporty look and add to the impressive handling.
Benelli will offer the BN 251 in the first half of 2015 in the colours white, red and blue. Price will be advised and is expected to be very competitive.
