The Benelli BN 251 is an affordable, versatile and efficient motorcycle especially designed to deal with a wide range of daily tasks. It is nimble, light and good looking entry level motorcycle powered by a liquid cooled single cylinder, 4-stroke DOHC Benelli engine which generates a maximum power of 24.5 hp (18 kW) at 9000 rpm and 21 Nm (2,14 kgm) at 7000 rpm.

The engine is mounted on a steel trestle frame which uses it as a stress member, thus significantly improving the bike’s handling abilities.
