In the beginning Benelli manufactured affordable small cc motorcycles for everyone to own and enjoy. Their popularity grew with people from all backgrounds experiencing for the first time the freedom and fun that comes with riding a motorcycle.Fast, nimble, lightweight and economical, the early Benellis became adored by their owners worldwide.

The BN 251 plays tribute to the same motorcycles customers enjoyed in the past, by offering a lightweight sporty 250 cc naked motorcycle at great value.Styled like its big brother range, it is the perfect entry level motorcycle, delivering excellent fuel economy, agile performance and easy to ride character.

The steel trestle frame incorporates the engine as a stress member further adding to the rigidity of the chassis. The suspension is also over engineered with an up-side down 41mm front fork and on the rear swing arm, a centrally located shock absorber takes care of irregular road surfaces.

Getting on the brakes is easy with Benellis own 280 mm front disc with a 4 piston caliper and at the rear a 240 mm single disc with a double piston caliper. The 17 aluminium alloy rims finish off the sporty look and add to the impressive handling.

Benelli will offer the BN 251 in the first half of 2015 in the colours white, red and blue.
