The new BN 302 is built with passion for riders of all kinds, from beginners to the experienced, who want to embrace smaller two wheel motoring at its purest form.
Stylish and aggressive looking, the BN 302 rewards its rider with Benelli suspension, exceptional clutch control, growling four valve DOHC inline two cylinder engine and comfortable ergonomic layout. The easy to ride character and confident braking, makes this the perfect bike for a daily commute, zipping through the city and out of town touring.
Behind the great looks is a punchy in-line two cylinder 4-stroke 4-valve DOHC Benelli engine, producing 28kW (38 hp) at 12,000 rpm and 27 Nm (2.75 kgm) at 9000 rpm. The engine is mated to a smooth 6 speed gearbox that delivers a smooth change every time.
The BN 302s inspiring agility is due to improved technology in the design of its rigid steel trestle frame and suspension setup. Up front the bike has ø 41 mm USD forks and on the rear swing arm, a lateral shock absorber soaks up the bumps with adjustable preload.
For maximum braking performance the BN 302 uses twin ø 260 mm floating discs with a 4 piston caliper brake at the front and a single ø 240 mm disc with a double piston caliper brake for the rear.
BN 302 will arrive next year in colours white, green and Benelli gold. Price to be advised soon.
