At the heart of the motorcycle continues to sit the same 500cc, parallel-twin engine that has been rated to deliver 46.8bhp of maximum power at 8,500rpm and 46Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. This engine is also found on the Benelli Leoncino 500 as well as the TRK 502. The transmission option on this engine include a 6-speed constant mesh unit.
Some of the key features on the motorcycle include its full-LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster, a 21.5-litre fuel tank, and dual-channel ABS. The 502c cruiser comes with a long wheelbase of 1,600 mm and its ground clearance stands at 170 mm.
The 502C cruiser by Benelli rivals the likes of the Kawasaki Vulcan S cruiser in the India market. It is also an indirect rival to the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 motorcycle.
