Classic bike for free spirits that strongly recalls the heritage of the Company of the Leoncino. This is the Imperiale 400, the Benelli motorcycle with a classic taste. Imperiale 400 is a reinterpretation of a historical model of the Benelli-MotoBi range produced in the 1950s. An authentic bike with a pure spirit that today finds its essence in an elegant, modern, retro motorcycle.
The beating heart of the Imperiale 400 is the new single-cylinder, four-stroke, air cooled engine with a single overhead camshaft timing system and electronic fuel injection offering maximum fuel economy in any riding conditions. Its maximum power is 20.4 hp (15.5 kW) at 5500 rpm, with torque of 28 Nm (2.95 kgm) at 3500 rpm.
Brakes & Wheels
The effective and balanced braking system of the Imperiale 400 features a 300 mm diameter disc on the front with two-piston floating calliper and a 240 mm disc with single-piston calliper at the rear, thus ensuring full control of the bike. The aluminium alloy rims have different diameters: 19″ on the front end, 18″ on the back, respectively mounting 110/90 and 130/80 tyres.
Chrome inserts accentuate the vintage style of this new Benelli motorcycle, reinforced by the round front headlight – typically retro – and the teardrop tank, which bring out the motorcycle’s true essence.
Analog Attitude in a Digital Age
The asymmetrically shaped and thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) cluster provides a sensation that is more jet fighter than street fighter.
