The Benelli Velvet 125 and 150 models feature an attractive classic style, a well designed chassis and modern technologies. Power comes from a 4-stroke air-cooled single- cylinder engine with 2-valve timing system. The unit develops a maximum output of 11.4 HP and 10,5 Nm (1,1 kgm) @ 6500 rpm (for the 150 version). To keep the engine under controlled, the stopping power is handled by a set of two discs which measure 241 mm in front and 220 mm at the rear.

The company says that its new scooter is ideal for city driving because is light, compact and offers a good handling. You also get a pretty decent ride quality assured by a front hydraulic telescopic fork and a double hydraulic rear dumper.

Hardly a passing trend, Velvet has spent an entire decade in the spotlight, thanks to its classic style and timeless quality that always put it in the right place at the right time.

It’s not only style that makes Velvet a stand-out, it’s also the well-designed chassis and low maintenance costs that combine to offer the best value for money.

Velvet is a stand-out because of its reliability, thanks to a 4-stroke air-cooled single- cylinder engine with 2-valve timing system delivering 11.4 HP of maximum power in the
150 version, the more versatile of the two available, which can travel on ring roads and motorways.

Velvet is a stand-out in the city, thanks to its lightness, pick-up and good handling, enabling the rider to move through traffic risk-free and waste no time arriving at destination. It boasts first-rate construction characteristics, starting with the solid, well- structured chassis to boost riding safety and optimum roadholding even when roads are bumpy or potholed, typical pitfalls of city riding.

The braking system relies on two discs, 241 mm in front and 220 mm at rear. The extreme compactness of the assembly and the meticulous design are reflected in the reduced weight, which makes Velvet the right choice for female buyers. What’s more, the riding position is designed to offer the best comfort for any-sized rider. And in any situation, the roomy twin seat assures remarkable comfort for both riders.

The Velvet 150 comes with a matching rear top case. Colours available are black and white.
