Benelli has revealed their 800 adventure bike based on the TRK platform which has been Italy’s #1 seller for the last two years.
Launched on Benelli’s 110th anniversary the TRK 800 represents the beginning of a new chapter in the Italian brand’s history. A motorcycle that further extends the TRK range, joining the TRK 502 X, offering the user a new agile and manageable motorcycle with a modern and refined style, powered by a parallel twin-cylinder engine.
The design of the TRK 800 features fluid, sinuous and strongly contemporary lines, which combine with elegant and refined surfaces as if to emphasise the growing emotions that this bike is able to offer, adventure after adventure. Keeping the family feeling of the TRK range, this new adventure evolves in style with the intention of making some of the elements present in the 500 version iconic, such as the front end and the front mudguard, which here are more tapered and dynamic, the double-arched headlights, which in the TRK 800 we find full LED with DRL.
The 754cc twin-cylinder, four-stroke engine is liquid-cooled and is the same as the one mounted on Leoncino 800, with 76.2 hp (56 kW) at 8500 rpm and a torque of 67 Nm (6.8 kgm) at 6500 rpm, in order to ensure pure fun and performance in any conditions. It features double overhead camshaft timing with 4 valves per cylinder and 43 mm diameter dual throttle body. The torque-assisted wet slipper clutch and 6-speed gearbox are also worth mentioning.
The Benelli TRK 800 is scheduled for release around mid-2022 for a yet to be disclosed price.
