Everyone loves the Ducati xDiavel. But, not everyone can afford to buy one. Seems like someone at Benelli understood the love for such a stylish premium cruiser to having brought to us this – the Benelli 402S. The uncanny resemblance in styling to the Ducati xDiavel will only do good for the brand, as it looks fantastic as an overall package.

No update on an Indian debut yet, but we would expect this model to be showcased around the Auto Expo 2018.

Powering the Benelli 402S is a new 399.3cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, 4-stroke, Euro-4 compliant motor producing 39 BHP of power and 35 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed gearbox. This engine is not seen on any other Benelli motorcycle as of now in India.

The bike features a tubular steel chassis, sculpted fuel tank, dual exhaust pipes, projector headlamp, digital instrument console, 16L fuel tank capacity, adjustable rear monoshock, 17″ front wheels with USD forks, dual front disc brake & single rear disc coupled with ABS.

Do you like what you see? Would you consider buying the Benelli 402S?
