Benelli India has launched the 2021 Imperiale 400 at a sticker price of Rs 1.89 lakhs (ex-showroom) in the country. The company has reduced the price of the new motorcycle by Rs 10,000 due to increase in localization and strengthening of the rupee against the dollar. It is also offering a 2-year unlimited kms manufacturer warranty and customers also have the option to purchase the extended 2-year warranty separately. Plus the brand is offering an added benefit of 24x7 RSA service as a part of its after-sales service.
Benelli Imperiale 400 BS6 was launched last year in July at an introductory price of Rs 1.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). Recently, the Italian bikemaker had also launched the 2021 TRK 502 in the country and despite it being updated with a BS6 engine, it attracted a price lower than the BS4 model.
