Benda Asura 400 Street Fighter Officially Unveiled
Benda Asura 400 is one radically-designed Chinese streetfighter concept that can put Kawasaki and Suzuki machines to rest with its impressive design. Not just that, the Asura 400 comes with complete LED lighting and single-sided swingarm, with the latter improving the overall stance of the motorcycle and adding premium character to the same. The headlight is a twin piece unit with demon-like facial expressions while the fuel tank is massive with least design lines and a raised centre section. The rider’s seat is low and decently wide while a bump in the pillion seat height is clearly visible and impractical for the real-world riding.
However, being a concept, the Benda Asura 400 can have such lines and transform the rear seat into a cowl if no change is to be made in the production version. The front comes with silver USD forks, thick forward-biased fender, dual disc brakes, and multi-spoke alloy wheels. The right side of the motorcycle feels empty in the absence of the dual-sided swingarm, flaunting twin exhaust exits like most premium motorcycles of this segment. The 399cc, twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine on the motorcycle is good for 43.5 HP of maximum power. The 4-valve motor helps Asura 400 claim direct rivalry with the Kawasaki Z400 in this segment.
The second prototype comes with golden body panels and black USD front forks as a difference when seen against the silver-finished concept. Benda may remove many features from the production version, but keeping the design intact can help them bring a segment-leader for certain markets. The handlebar section comes with a completely digital console mounted in the middle of the bar. The space for this console has been carved carefully out of the fuel tank section. The motorcycle is said to be made out of cast aluminium and thus, the weight won’t be on the higher side of the scale at any cost.
