2018 EICMA: 2019 Benelli 752S – 77 hp, parallel-twin

After being away awhile from the larger motorcycle displacement range, Benelli has returned with the 2019 Benelli 752 S, its offering for the naked sports segment. Set to go on sale in Europe in the summer of 2019, the 752S goes up against rivals such as the Ducati Monster, Triumph 765, and Yamaha’s MT-07, to name some examples.

Save for the fuel tank and front mudguard, the 752S has a minimum of a bodywork, bringing its trellis frame to the fore, alogn with the round-section steel tubing swingarm. This encapsulates the two-cylinder, 750 cc, liquid-cooled DOHC mill that produces a claimed 77 hp at 8,500 rpm and 67 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, with power going through a six-speed gearbox.

Betraying its sporting intentions is the Marzocchi 50 mm diameter upside-down fork, fully-adjustable, and the 320 mm diameter brake discs clamped by Brembo four-piston callipers. At the back, a 250 mm diameter single disc does the job with a single-piston Brembo calliper and two-channel ABS comes standard.



Inside the cockpit, a full-colour TFT-LCD display can be found, along with LED lighting throughout. Fuel for the 752S is carried in a 14.5-litre tank with an overall weight of 228 kg.

Seat height for the 2019 Benelli 752S is set at 810 mm and it rolls on 17-inch wheels shod in 120/70 and 180/55 rubber. There are three colour options for the 752S – white, black and green.
