Adventurous: Benelli TRK 502x Reaches Khardungla


Benelli’s adventure tourer – the TRK 502X has proved it yet again; whether it is a ride across the town or across the country, the TRK stands tall as the ideal travelling companion. In the recently held high performance endurance run covering 1800kms in 7 days, the TRK 502X successfully conquered the highest motorable road (Khardungla) in stock condition, starting from Manali, covering Jispa – Baralacha – Sarchu – More Plains – Tanglang La and Leh along the way.

Post this historic achievement, the team, along with the Benelli TRK 502X continued to ride into the deserts of Nubra Valley, post which the team rode onto the Pangong lake followed by an off-road stretch of around 150kms to the Tsomoriri Lake. Furthermore, the Benelli TRK 502X marched on to complete the ride back to Manali without facing any technical or performance related issues due to ice cold weather, varied terrain or even the high altitudes.

Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding riders who wish to travel without boundaries, the TRK 502X is powered by a refined 500cc twin-cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine with 4-valves per cylinder. The powerhouse comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The trellis frame is made of steel tubes and plates, to guarantee agility under all circumstances. Up front, both models come with 50mm upside down forks, while the rear gets a vertically mounted mono-shock. The combination offers superb wheel control and a comfortable ride, on road and off it.

The adventure ready TRK 502X gets Metzeler tyres measuring 110/80 – 19inch front and 150/70 – 17inch at the rear, which are wrapped onto spoked rims, offering more flex to tackle rough situations. The TRK 502X uses twin 320mm floating discs with a 2-piston caliper at the front and a single 260mm disc with one piston calliper at the rear with dual-channel switchable ABS. The TRK 502X is available in 3 colour options – Red, White and Graphite Grey and is priced at INR 5.5 lakhs (ex-showroom, India).
