Imperiale 400 is the classic bike par excellence proposed by the Leoncino Company, a reinterpretation of a historic model from the Benelli-MotoBi range produced in the 1950s. An easy, intuitive and extremely captivating two-wheeler, thanks to its elegant look and its retro soul.
The beating heart of the Imperiale 400 is the new single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled engine, Euro5, with a single overhead camshaft timing system and electronic fuel injection offering maximum fuel economy in any riding conditions. Its maximum power is 21 hp (15.5 kW) at 5500 rpm, with torque of 29 Nm (2.95 kgm) at 4500 rpm. The engine, updated in the Euro 5 version, has been optimized enabling the same performance of the previous one, whilst also significantly reducing fuel consumption (3.1 l / 100 km).
Easy to ride, the Imperiale 400 has a compact and durable double cradle frame made of steel tubes and plates. The front suspension features a telescopic fork with legs having a 41 mm diameter and 121 mm travel, while the rear has a swinging arm with double shock absorber and travel of 55 mm. The design of the exhaust and the chrome inserts accentuate the vintage style of this new Benelli motorcycle, reinforced by the round front headlight – typically retro –and the teardrop tank, which bring out the motorcycle's true essence.
Imperiale 400 offers 19 "front and 18" rear wheels which mount Maxxis Promaxx 100/90 tyres at the front and 130/80 at the rear, capable of guaranteeing maximum reliability on the road in any condition, even in the wet.
The effective and balanced braking system of the Imperiale 400 features a 300 mm diameter disc on the front with two-piston floating caliper and a 240 mm disc with single-piston floating caliper at the rear, thus ensuring full control of the bike.
