Benelli on Thursday launched the eagerly-awaited BS 6-compliant Imperiale 400 BS 6 bike in India at 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom). In comparison to the previous BS 4-compliant model, the newly updated retro-classic offering is close to 30,000 more expensive. Customers can book the motorcycle by paying a token amount of 6,000 online at the company website or at the nearest Benelli dealership. Its deliveries will start from 1st week of August.

The bike was earlier slated to go on sale in India in April, but the coronavirus outbreak threw a wrench in its launch plans.

Apart from a new BS 6-compliant engine, there is no other major change on the bike. Its fuel-injected 373.5 cc single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled engine develops the same 21 PS at 6,000 rpm and 29 Nm at 3,500 rpm, as before. It is teamed-up with a 5-speed gearbox. In comparison to the previous BS 4 unit, the engine delivers the same output figures, the only difference is that the power and torque are now delivered at a different rpm range.
