Benelli Imperiale 400 Price Dropped by INR 10,000 in India: Benelli has officially announced a price drop for its Imperiale cruiser motorcycle. The 400cc bike is now available at INR 1.89 lakhs (ex-showroom). For your reference, the BS6-compliant model of Imperiale 400 was launched in India back on July 9, 2020, with a starting ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.99 lakhs.
According to the brand, they have managed to reduce the price by increasing the amount of localisation of parts while the improvement in the value of the rupee against the dollar has further helped the company to reduce the price of the motorcycle by INR 10,000.
The Imperiale 400 rivals the likes of Royal Enfield Meteor 350, Honda Highness CB350, and the Jawa Classic 300. There are no cosmetic changes and the 2021 model of Imperiale 400 continues to feature the similar retro-inspired styling with a round headlamp, peanut-shaped fuel tank, dual-pod instrument cluster, split seat, and spoke wheels. The cruiser motorcycle is equipped with an analogue instrument cluster with a small digital unit on the left side. The styling of the bike makes sure that it looks unique and commanding on the road.
The suspension duties of the bike are performed by front telescopic forks and rear dual shock absorbers. Braking of the bike is handled by disc brakes at both ends, with a dual-channel ABS unit as standard. Mechanically, the BS6 Benelli Imperiale 400 is powered by a 374cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, air-cooled engine, which is good for 21HP of maximum power along with 29Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The bike continues to be available in three colours: Red, Black, and Silver.
