BENELLI has used global motorcycle show EICMA to unveil its TRK 800, a brand new adventure bike. Set to arrive in Australia some time next year, the new bike from the Italian manufacturer will extend its range.
Joining the bike maker’s best selling TRK 502 X, it offers the user a new agile and manageable motorcycle, with a modern and refined style, powered by a 754cc engine.
The design of the TRK 800 features fluid, sinuous and strongly contemporary lines,
which combine with elegant and refined surfaces to emphasise the growing
emotions that this bike is able to offer; adventure after adventure.
The 754cc twin-cylinder, four-stroke engine is liquid cooled and is the same as the
one in the Leoncino 800, with 56kW of power and 67Nm of torque. It features double overhead cam timing with 4-valves per cylinder and 43mm diameter dual throttle body.
The torque-assisted wet slipper clutch and 6-speed gearbox are also worth mentioning. The chassis is based on a tubular trellis frame with a high-strength steel plate, designed to ensure the rider maximum agility and comfort in all conditions.
The bike’s ergonomics have been carefully considered, down to the smallest detail, to easily accommodate both rider and passenger, even with side and top cases, ensuring a comfortable, intuitive riding position.
The suspension on the front ensures maximum comfort whether on or off the road
thanks to a Marzocchi upside-down fork with 50mm legs – adjustable in rebound,
compression and spring preload, and with 170mm travel.
On the back, an aluminium swinging arm with central mono-shock is adjustable in the spring preload and hydraulic rebound damping, and has a travel of 53mm (171mm at the wheel).
Great care has been taken with the aerodynamic protection thanks to a large adjustable fairing, hand guards, and baffles, which provide perfect protection for both rider and passenger.
Maximum attention was also paid to comfort, thanks to a slim, spacious seat, the comfortable, sturdy crown passenger grab handles and standard central stand. It has a generous fuel tank capacity of 21-litres.
This new motorcycle also features an easy-to-use, intuitive dashboard, equipped with a high resolution 7.0-inch colour TFT display.
The performance of the Brembo braking system is ensured by the double 320mm
diameter semi-floating disc on the front, with a four-piston calliper, and a 260mm diameter disc on the back, with a single-piston calliper.
