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.

As far as cycle parts are concerned, the bike comes with 41 mm conventional telescopic forks and rear preload-adjustable dual springs. Its braking duties are handled by a front 300 mm disc and a rear 240 mm disc with single-piston caliper. These brakes work in conjunction with a dual-channel ABS. It will be available in three colour options - Silver, Red and Black.

Commenting on the launch of the new Benelli Imperiale 400 BS 6, Vikas Jhabhak, MD Benelli India, said "We are delighted to introduce the BS 6 Imperiale 400. The premium retro cruiser became more popular since the day it was launched and is a favourite among many classic bike fanatics. With the transitioning to BS 6 norms, we are confident about strengthening the Imperiale brand further, establishing Benelli's identity in the entry-level classic bike segment."
