Benelli TRK 502 X Motorcycle Review - Adventure Bike Rider
Julain Challis went exploring through Italy to see whether or not Benelli can break into the adventure bike market, with the new Benelli TRK 502 X. Here's how he got on…
It's a big ask. For a tiny company like Benelli to break into the lucrative adventure bike market from its factory in the hills of rural Italy, it seems unlikely but carving the new TRK 502 X through the sweeping hairpins and fast back roads around Rossi's hometown of Tavullia, it doesn’t seem out of the question.
