2013 Benelli Motard 250

Posted on by  

The Benelli Motard 250 was especially created to be the perfect motorcycle for less experienced riders. When designing the bike, Benelli’s engineers have spent a lot of time to make it easy to maneuver, light and also strong enough to offer a fun riding experience.

At its heart lies a single-cylinder, 4 stroke, liquid cooled, 4 valves, double overhead camshaft, fuel injected engine that puts out a maximum output of 18 kw (25 cv) at 9000 rpm and 21 Nm (2,14 kgm) of torque at 7000 rpm. All this power is kept in leash by a six speed gearbox with wet clutch.

The engine is wrapped by a stiff frame made of resilient tubular steel which sits on a set of comfortable suspensions. Talking about suspensions they consist of a ø 50mm front fork with hydraulic adjustment and a rear single shock-absorber with progressive link.
