Benelli says the BN3 02: “Slim, light and handy, BN302 is the two wheels which take confidence immediately. In the curves it is fast and snappy. In the rise and fall it is agile and responsive, behaving like a big motorcycle. In the city, it becomes a excellent ally to ‘fight’ the traffic of metropolis, where BN302 is undoubtedly able to distinguish itself from direct competitors.”

This new naked sportbike, which gives will compete with the Suzuki GW250, the Ninja 300, and Honda’s CBR250R,  features an inline two-cylinder four-stroke engine with fuel injection, a double camshaft and four valves. The engine is hooked to a six-speed transmission and a chain final drive.

Calling it entry-level would be quite an understatement. The Benelli BN302 is in fact much, much more. It’s definitely a bike designed for the young riders. A bike was created with the intent to satisfy those who fell in lovew with two wheels for the first time and can no longer do without it. But once you ride the BN302, even the most experienced rider, who ride bikes of all sizes, power and displacement, will have fun on the BN302.

Slim, light and handy, the BN302 is the two wheels which gives confidence immediately. In the curves it is fast and snappy. In the open it is agile and responsive, behaving like a big motorcycle. In the city, it becomes a excellent ally to “fight” the traffic of the metropolis, where BN302 is undoubtedly able to distinguish itself from direct competitors.
