Benelli was established in Pesaro, Italy in 1911, which possibly makes it the oldest of all European motorcycle factories in operation.
Now that Benelli has taken its step in Nepal, new Benelli bikes are coming in hot. Recently, Benelli launched the Benelli BN 251 in Nepal. The Benelli BN 251 in Nepal comes at a price of Rs. 5,20,000.
In the beginning, it was just the Benelli Garage, which repaired bicycles and motorcycles but was already able to produce all of the spare parts needed for repairs.
During World War I, Benelli worked hard fixing parts for the Italian machines in war and in 1919 the first motorcycle was presented to the public. In 1920 the company built its first complete engine in-house, a single-cylinder two-stroke 75 cc model, immediately adapted to a bicycle frame.
The BN 251 plays tribute to the same motorcycles customers have enjoyed in the past, by offering a lightweight sporty 250 cc naked motorcycle at exceptional value. Styled like its bigger siblings, it is the perfect entry level motorcycle, delivering excellent fuel economy, agile performance and easy to ride characteristics.
The gearbox is fairly slick, the clutch nice and light and it doesn’t vibrate too badly thanks to a balancer shaft, but that’s to be expected, what sets the Benelli aside is the fact its 41mm forks and single shock seem to work really well. Pleasingly, they are devoid of too much of the bounce that you get on cheap units that appear lacking any noticeable damping and do their job very well. You can actually hustle the little Benelli through bends and its featherweight 143kg makes it really light and nimble through town.
