Benelli TRK 502 series has caught the eyes of many customers with its attractive pricing. Launched at Rs. 5 Lakh for the road-biased variant, TRK 502 and Rs. 5.4 Lakh for the off-road biased TRK 502X. The Italian manufacturer, however, has raised the prices of both these machines by Rs. 10,000. The TRK 502 is now priced at Rs. 5.10 Lakh and the TRK 502X comes in at Rs. 5.50 lakh. This price hike comes within months of the launch of these two machines. Despite the hike, these two bikes retain the title of being the most affordable twin-cylinder adventure touring motorcycles on sale in the country.
Both these machines share the basic skeleton and use a 500cc, parallel-twin, 4-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC engine sitting in a trellis frame. This motor is tuned to deliver 47.5 PS @ 8,500 rpm and 46Nm @ 6,000 rpm and is married with a 6-speed gearbox. With a fuel tank of 20-litres, Benelli has ensured that riders will spend more time on the road and less time at the petrol pump. While the regular TRK 502 gets alloy wheels, the TRK 502X offers spoked wheels and increased ground clearance.
