Benelli 1200GT Revealed In China Market
Benelli has introduced its first major motorbike in China, the 1200 GT. The 1200 GT from Benelli is packed with characteristics and is priced in its home market much below the competition.
The major aspect of the Benelli 1200GT is its 1209cc triple-cylinder engine, a development of an 898cc engine from the Benelli Tornado Tre. At 9 000 rpm and 120Nm at 6 500 rpm, it generates 134hp. This makes it the country’s largest Chinese-made motorbike. This title can, however, be brief, since CF Moto is said to work with a larger engine powered by a KTM LC8 V-twin. The Benelli 1200GT is nonetheless able to reach speeds of over 200kph that are rapid enough for a large GT machine of over 300kg.
The Benelli 1200GT fits in terms of features and we’ve heard the expression loaded to the gills. A windscreen, foldable mirrors, a pneumatic pressure control system, navigation, and more are included on the list. Interestingly, Benelli has a snazzier, 15-inch complete TFT screen with a parts analog component digitally on the prototype motorbike. But the party part is a group of front and rear cameras which notify the rider about motorcycle traffic.
The engine prototype is seen last year and the 1200GT production appears similar but for slight front-end changes. With a large fly, headlight cluster and hefty fuel tank the design is really impressive.
With a stepped seat and a high handlebar, the ergonomics appear comfortable. Contrary to the front, the tail end is minimum, so that the panels and the top case are adjusted. With regard to equipment, Brembo, Bosch ABS, USD fork, and an adjustable jig shaft are radially installed on the bike.
The price is 99,800 yuan or Rs 11.453 lakh for the Benelli 1200GT. It is also far cheaper in the Chinese market than a similar touring motorbike, such as the BMW R1250 RT. However, that’s Benelli’s pricing on the domestic market and it ought to cost more when it is sold on the European market. With regard to the Indian market, the odds of launching the 1200GT are limited. Benelli India is now working on a growing market presence with the launching of the BS6 TRK 502.
