The proportions of Benelli’s new scrambler Leoncino look similar to the Ducati, but there are differences in powertrain and other features. The Leoncino boasts a 500 cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine. Built on a trellis frame, it gets USD forks and a monoshock with preload adjustment at the rear. ABS comes standard and, true to scrambler tradition, there are knobblies and spoke wheels as well.
