Benelli 402S 2018

Now that Benelli no longer has a large engine in his organ bank, both in displacement and character, everything would suggest that the lion of Pesaro has settled down. In watts, of course. But driven by the expression of Chinese investors, a machine tries the bluff, betting everything on form rather than bottoming out.

Here is the 402 S, the first roadster-cruiser from Benelli, with a hot-rod trend.

What classifies him in this category of vindictive machines? Its (too) strong resemblance to a certain Ducati XDiavel. Although the Benelli 402S multiplies the touches of style to give itself its own identity, the overall radius is confusing similarity. The Italian brand will have to support the reputation of Chinese designers’ photocopiers. A slap for Benelli’s honor.
However, the tubular steel trellis frame is very different, no single-arm, and an engine of another dimension.
The only common point between the engine of the 402S and that of the Ducati comes down to the number of pistons. Then it’s the earthen pot … no, sand against the iron pot. The Chinese inline twin announces just under 400 cc for a final power of 39.4 horsepower. The torque is in the nails of the displacement, with 3.5 mkg. With such figures, the machine seems promised to the A2 license but in reality, it plunges into the much larger market of emerging countries. Whatever the watts; with that face there, it seems promised to a good career … in the countries of the far East.

The Most of the elements of the cycle part enhance the picture. Because the gear is rather high for a bike of this displacement A 41 mm inverted fork, 3 brake discs in all – 260 mm at the front with 4-piston axial calipers and 240 mm at the rear with double-piston caliper -, a reasonable weight of 160 kilos.
The 402S seems to ignore jokes. It encourages its pilot to an attitude of cruising and style, with the feet placed forward, a long 16 liter tank, a minimalist rear and a look entirely in LEDs, itself hidden in a very … Duke 125 headlight. / 390 old generation.

We will not come back to the collapse of Benelli’s memory that the owners of the brand seem to ignore. Let’s try to define what the 402 S is. A motorbike to be seen and flog the driver in the streets of Bombay, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong or Chongqing. Let’s see it as a 400 and it will be flattering; see her as a Benelli and you will be disillusioned.
