Benelli has just launched the 502C urban cruiser for the Indian market priced at Rs 4.98 lakh, ex-showroom.

The Benelli 502C is a touring-oriented middle-weight cruiser based on the same engine platform as the Leoncino 500.

In terms of design, the 502C seems to be highly inspired by the Ducati Diavel. It gets a similar long tank and a short stubby tail section. The all-LED headlamp unit features a stacked setup with integrated DRLS and while the rear also features LEDs. It features a pair of beefy USD forks and a dual barrel exhaust system complete with an exposed trellis frame.

Powering the 502C is a BS-VI compliant 500cc parallel-twin engine that produces 47.5 PS of power and 46 Nm of torque. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, this is the same engine as the Leoncino 500. Suspension is handling by a 41mm front fork and a rear monoshock while braking duties are taken care of by a 280mm twin-disc up front and a 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS as standard.

Since the 502C is targeted towards touring, the seat only stands at 750mm and the fuel-tank holds about 21 litres of fuel. The cruiser isn’t the lightest however, and weighs 216 kg.
