Pure style and fun, concentrated in an easy, accessible and extremely contemporary motorcycle. This is the concept behind the new Leoncino 125, a motorbike that was created to meet the needs of the latest generations of motorcyclists and fulfil their desire for freedom and independence. A bike that expands the current Benelli Leoncino range and stays faithful to the family’s feeling, able to bring out both its heritage and contemporary character. Leoncino 125 is also a bike designed for those who are new to the motorcycling world, guaranteeing maximum ease of handling and agility on the road and offering an exciting ride from the start, all without extremely low operating costs.
The beating heart of the Leoncino 125 is the new single-cylinder four-stroke liquid-cooled 125cc engine, a first for the quarter-litre models currently in the range. The timing features single overhead camshaft with 4 valves per cylinder, electronic injection with 28 mm diameter throttle body, wet clutch and 6-speed gearbox. This new engine has a power output of 12.8 hp (9.4 kW) at 9500 rpm and 10 Nm (1.0 kgm) at 8500 rpm. One of the bike’s strengths is certainly its low consumption of 2.2 litres per 100 km.
Developed for maximum agility and handling on the road, the Leoncino 125 has an excellent chassis. The frame is a traditional steel trellis frame designed to integrate perfectly with the bike's design, sharing the style and character of the quarter-litre of the Leoncino range. The tank features a mix of classic and modern lines and balanced surfaces capable of giving the bike a unique, unmistakable look. The all-LED headlight is high end, with an elegant, sophisticated design. The instrument panel is digital and clearly visible in all conditions. Like the rest of the Leoncino range, the stylised lion proudly stands out on the front mudguard, recalling the history of this model.
The suspensions of the Leoncino 125 consist of an upside-down fork on the front with 35 mm diameter legs, while the back end has a swinging arm with central monoshock and travel of 53 mm. As for the braking system, on the front there is a single 280 mm diameter floating disc with three-piston calliper, and on the back a 220 mm diameter disc with two-piston floating calliper. CBS present. The 17" aluminium alloy rims mount 110/80-R17 and 130/70-R17 tyres respectively, ensuring maximum road safety.
