Benelli attacks a new segment with its Leoncino Bobber 400. A fierce custom for the A2

After passing through the recent Beijing Motorcycle Show, Benelli gave us a preview of some of its most important new features for next season. Among them was this Leoncino Bobber 400. A frame totally different from what we knew until now, within the range of models that carry this same commercial name within the Italian firm.

However, in this first contact with the public, Benelli did not reveal any significant information about this Leoncino Bobber 400, beyond the purely obvious. For example, its engine, with V2 architecture, or some relevant details that could make up its final equipment. What is clear is the model on which the brand has been based for its development, the QJMotor SRV 350 VS.
