Benelli expands its range of nakeds by presenting the new 402S, a brazen and courageous city-cruiser with a strong personality, designed for those who want to stand out from the crowd every day. With advanced footpegs as is traditional for custom bikes, a comfortable and spacious seat, and contemporary and stylish design, the 402S is the perfect bike for experiencing the city but also to take the trip that you've always dreamed of.
The engine is the new in-line four-stroke twin cylinder, liquid cooled with four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshaft head, offering a fluid power delivery for optimum fuel consumption. Its maximum power is 39.4 hp (29 kW) at 9000 rpm, with torque of 35 Nm (3.6 kgm) at 7000 rpm. The bike has a wet multiplate clutch, 6 speed gearbox, electronic injection with double throttle body measuring 37 mm in diameter.
The tube trellis frame with steel plates emphasises the cruiser spirit of this new motorcycle. The suspensions on the front consist in an upside down fork with 41 mm legs and 125 mm travel, and on the back a swinging arm with central adjustable monoshock in the spring preload with a travel of 45 mm.
The braking system on the front end consists in double semi-floating 260 mm diameter discs, and the back end a 240 mm disc, with 4-piston callipers on the front and a single piston on the back. The bike is also obviously equipped with ABS. The 17" aluminium alloy rims mount 120/70-R17 and 160/60-R17 tyres. The height of the seat, as per tradition, is set at 740 mm and is
able to offer maximum agility and control of the vehicle. The tank has a capacity of 16 litres, guaranteeing many kilometres of autonomy.
402S will be available from the second half of 2018 at a price that is yet to be determined.
