DEVIL MAY CRY-BENELLI 502C REVIEW
Benelli 502C, a standard Italian muscular cruiser, is dubbed by domestic motorcycle fans “the Domestic Diavel”. Benelli has been inclined to create such a powerful mid-weight Italian cruiser with clear positioning.
If you like a muscular motorcycle like Ducati’s Diavel, but do not have the budget, Benelli 502C will be perfect for you. 502C will satisfy your “Diavel Dream”.
If you get used to the Diavel’s rear 240mm wide tire, the 502C’s 160/60-ZR17 M/C 69W rear tire will seem extremely slim to you, but this seemingly slim tire performs satisfactorily during riding
502C can cruise at 130km/h with ease, but if you want to get a higher speed, it will be a little difficult for the engine, and wind resistance will also be a big problem, which, certainly, can be solved by adding a windscreen later. Speed has never been an advantage on big cruisers, while flexible handling is more important for them. The Sport Touring tires from Pirelli is especially reliable in wet environment.
It is also surprisingly comfortable. With a lower dished saddle, 502C allows enough room for the legs. It has wide easy-to-reach handlebars, with adjustable brake lever, which make the motorcycle suitable for shorter riders.
Benelli 502C is powered by a 500cc water-cooled double-cylinder engine, which is a mature power platform used on the TRK502 and Leoncino 500. Its maximum power is 35Kw, the maximum torque is 45N·m, and the explosive rev at maximum torque is 5,000rpm, which conforms to the power output characteristics of a cruiser.
The single-side double-tube exhaust sounds as usual as a Benelli does. The vibration suppression and the throttle feedback are good. It is easy-to-control for inexperienced riders.
502C, Benelli’s first middle displacement cruiser, comes with many modern popular features, such as round LED lights, waved brake discs, radial brake calipers, and all-digital display cluster.
Benelli 502C is different from the common American style cruisers from the other domestic motorcycle brands. Its unique style is a great attraction and pleasure for those who love the Diavel. It also brings you comfortable and enjoyable riding experience. (Source: WeChat: MotoTopOne)
