Benelli Racks Up 150 Bookings Of The TRK 502 Twins In 15 Days
A majority of these bookings are for the more expensive TRK 502X
- Benelli has received 85 bookings for the TRK 502X and 65 bookings for the TRK 502.
- Bookings for the ADV bikes started online.
- This month Benelli has added eight new dealerships countrywide taking total dealership count to 18.
- The Italian bikemaker will launch 3 more bikes this year and have 40 dealerships in India by the end of 2019.
Benelli had launched the TRK 502 and TRK 502X ADV twins on February 18 this year. It has been a month since the launch and Benelli have already received 150 bookings for both the bikes. That's quite a good number for a 500cc ADV motorcycle.
Interestingly it is the more expensive and off-road oriented TRK 502X which has received the most amount of interest with it getting 85 bookings as compared to 65 bookings for the base TRK 502. This could be possibly due to growing interest among enthusiasts to venture further off the road or just the fact the 502X looks larger and commands more road presence than the 502. At Rs 5.4 lakh (ex-showroom), it costs just Rs 40,000 more than the TRK 502 which retails for Rs 5 lakh.
Benelli has been on the rise again after they changed India partners. After the launch of the TRK twins, they will be getting in three more bikes to India. They are the Leoncino, Leoncino Trail and 302S. Next year they will launch the Imperiale 400 here. Since their new innings, Benelli has started 18 dealerships across India, 8 of which opened this month itself. Plans are on to have 40 functional dealerships across India by the end of the year.
Benelli India’s current lineup consists of the TNT 300, 302R, TNT 600i, TRK 502 and TRK 502X.
