Benelli 502 C Highlights

The Benelli 502C has been launched in India at Rs 4.98 lakh (ex-showroom India). You can read all about the motorcycle in our launch report here. Its pre-bookings commenced earlier this month for a token of Rs 10,000. The Benelli 502C is the company’s third motorcycle based on the 500cc parallel-twin engine platform and is Benelli’s first modern cruiser in India. 

 

The urban cruiser looks like a scaled-down Ducati Diavel 1260 with its hunkered-down stance and raked-out front end. It has got a large 21-litre fuel tank, which should be more than enough for endless mile-munching. Even though it’s on the heavier side at 216kg kerb, the low 750mm seat should help maneuvering a tad easier.  

 

The 500cc parallel-twin engine, mated to a 6-speed gearbox, produces 47.6PS and 46Nm. This engine is housed inside a tubular steel trellis frame and suspended by a USD fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking setup comprises twin 280mm rotors on the front wheel with a four-piston radial caliper acting on each disc. The rear 240mm disc gets a conventional two-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.

 

The Benelli 502C competes with the upcoming Honda Rebel 500, which is likely to be launched in the coming months. Another alternative currently on sale is the Kawasaki Vulcan S, which is a 650cc cruiser.

502 C Expert Review

 

Built on the same 500cc engine platform as the Leoncino 500 and the TRK 502, the Benelli 502C arrives in India with the promise of offering the rider a ‘big’ cruiser (read as Ducati Diavel) vibe but in an accessible manner. Hence, Benelli even calls it an urban cruiser and not a power cruiser. So, can it be a great first big cruiser?

Design and Features

 

The Benelli 502C looks properly big and butch. It gives off the big cruiser vibe that most buyers would find highly appealing. It tries to mimic the Ducati Diavel in a lot of ways, like with the LED headlight with its DRLs positioned like fangs, its large and bulky tank, the short, stubby seat, and even an airy rear end. However, it doesn’t look quite right, as you feel certain items are larger than or smaller than needed. For instance, the tank looks very large but sits on a comparatively small engine. The rear tyre is a mere 160-section unit and not an outrageous 240-section one like the Diavel. Even the fit and finish levels on the 502C aren’t too great as you can witness a lot of exposed wiring and poorly finished welds. The switches are sub-par for a motorcycle of its class. The paint quality, though, is a bit premium.

We have grown fond of the 500cc motor. It isn’t the liveliest engine in the segment but has a linear and punchy power delivery that makes you fall in love with it. What makes the experience even richer is its rumbling exhaust note. It growls at low revs and gets angrier and sportier as you feed in more gas. The engine also allows the rider to ride around in the city at 40-45kmph in the top cog, without any qualms. You don’t need to work the gearbox much to keep it singing and it might require just a single downshift to get past the really slow vehicles in your path.

 

Fuel efficiency

 

City

26.52kmpl

Highway

25.89kmpl

 

Even on the highway, the motor has the capability to cruise at 120kmph. Its sweet spot, though, is 95-100kmph and when you stick to its calm zone, it delivers great fuel efficiency as well. Having said that, the engine isn’t free from flaws. Refinement isn’t the best as a light buzz is experienced at the bars and pegs pretty much across the rev band. And it becomes a bit annoying at higher revs. The clutch is slightly heavy and gear shifts, while being positive, aren’t slick.

Braking and Handling

 

On the whole, the suspension’s plush setup gobbles up most of the bumps and potholes that you would come across on your commute. It is only when riding on concrete roads, at speeds of around 40-45kmph, that you feel a bobbing sensation, which gets a bit discomforting. One way to solve that would be to ride a bit quicker or get a pillion on board, as the ride calms down. Out on the highway too, you have to be wary of the sharp bumps as they could end up tossing you off the seat. Where it really impressed us is in the twisties. The 502C is eager to go down and thanks to the wide bars, you have ample leverage to quickly go from one side to the other. It loves long sweepers as you really enjoy the sensation when leaned over. It stays calm and can carry quite a lot of speed into the corner.

Braking

100-0kmph

55.91m

80-0kmph

28.57m

While the Pirelli Angel GT tyres are amongst the best touring-spec rubber in the business, the same cannot be said about the brakes. Its dual front disc setup doesn’t shed speed as rapidly as we would’ve liked. There’s good brake progression and ABS intervention is minimal and predictable.

Safety and Features

 

Benelli provides all-LED lighting on the 502C. The headlight does an okay job and we would advise getting auxiliary lamps if you are serious about touring. The small full-colour console is a let down. The graphics are sub-par for a bike at this price point, and the screen lacks crispness. Plus, there’s a dedicated Dark mode layout which alters the positioning of data on the screen, making it a task to reconfigure what info you needed at that moment. Even in terms of data, there’s just the bare minimum. You get a speedometer, a bar-type tachometer, fuel gauge, two trip meters, an odometer and a clock.
