Benelli Imperiale 400
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 and 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 21 hp (15.5 kW) at 5500 rpm, with torque of 29 Nm (2.95 kgm) at 4500 rpm. Extremely easy to ride and handle, the Imperiale 400 has a compact and durable double cradle frame made of steel tubes and plates. The front suspension features a telescopic fork with legs having a 41 mm diameter and 121 mm travel, while the rear has a swinging arm with double shock absorber and travel of 55 mm. The design of the exhaust and the 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. 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 floating 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 100/90 and 130/80 tyres. Imperiale 400 is offered in black and silver.
