The Benelli TRK 502 and TRK 502X were perhaps the most affordable ADVS in the 500cc twin-cylinder mid-range segment. Benelli Leoncino 500's price is expected to be lower than the TRK 502 (Rs 5.10 lakh) and TRK 502X (Rs 5.50 lakh). In USA, the Benelli Leoncino 500 cost Rs 6.3 lakh. However, in India we expect the Benelli Leoncino 500's price to be cheaper and around Rs 4.5 lakh.
