Benelli launched the new Motard 250, a rugged dirt bike especially designed for young riders. The bike is lightweight, has good handling and is also offered at a pretty reasonable price - tag three attributes that make it a pretty interesting proposition.
Power comes from a compact single-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection and timing system with overhead, double camshaft and 4 valves. The engine delivers a maximum power of 25 HP (18 kW) at 9000 rpm, and 21 Nm (2.1 kgm) of torque at 7000 rpm. Other technical highlights include a six speed transmission, wet sump lubrication and oil bath clutch.
The bike features a pretty ergonomic design, with a compact tank, simple fairing and an aggressive mudguard. Out back, there is a sleek tail that houses a small tail light unit and the high exhaust end piece.
