Benelli BX 125 Enduro



Standing as the of a long-time designing and developing the new model of the Italian maker has much sorted out the thing it at and that is performance. The bike’s motocross aluminum alloy frame with casting, extruded parts and structural roods elements patent is the thing that happened to it if we consider the fuel injected single-cylinder four-… DOHC titanium valves engine, with motocross drawbacks.

As much as we would like to the new Benelli straight against the off-road models such as the CRF450X, Yamaha WR450F and KX450F, these bikes (449cc) clearly sets apart from the 505 cylinder of the subject of this review leads us to off-road specialists KTM and

The Austrian builder delivers the 530 as a really powerful and torquey companion which comes with the totally redesigned XC4 Already famous for being a performer, the carbureted 510.4cc cooled single cylinder mated to the six-gears gearbox it perfect for this battle and us wondering if there is anything to with these two.

Of course there is! The Husqvarna TE 510 is an more appropriate competitor for the as its 510cc four-…, four-valves, liquid cooled single-cylinder is electronically fuel injected. The comes fitted with and hand guards while such as the Marzocchi suspensions and brakes definitely leave fingerprint on the also new bike.

A Enduro tuned gearbox have missed this package and we can say that these are forming a specific category.

Those daring Italian have really managed to an aggressive looking first BX 505 motorcycle that will an eye to every potential buyer and not Everything is where it is suppose to be, perfectly blend in together and the touches are simply mind As you get close to it you even start if it is rideable or more likely to be sent on the showroom floor it will shine like no off-roader has ever did before.

Pieces from which you be getting your eyes off are the (it looks like an alien’s if you ask me, but maybe that’s the whole looks and innovation), front side panels and definitely the fender. Apart from the lines that have to individualize Benelli’s Cross and models, the magic consists in the arrangement which is meant to the bike stand out even

Green up front on the fender and panels, gray on the headlight’s fairing and on the rear fender and panels while everything in is black (best example is the and the protective matte black which have the purpose of not excessive wear like pieces would do). black are the rims, but the shine disappears when introducing the to the environment for which it was created.

Test Drive

Out on the trails, is simply nothing to stop the BX 505 Enduro from making a good impression. From the leg swing over it to some accelerating action, the machine about the Italian’s intention to the Enduro market all over the

As soon as you are introduced to its narrow motocross-like handlebars and ergonomically footpegs you know that is no ordinary trail bike or like that. The idea was to good accommodations so that the would concentrate on the aggressive that he is doing, but isn’t a little too close to motocross? I that there is no possibility to the thing half a day without that a razor blade you in half and start searching for seats that never let found, especially in the case of a enduro bike.

But if you are more into hard the engine will feel it was especially designed to fulfill riding needs. A real and horsepower provider, the 505cc cylinder four-… DOHC titanium valves fuel powerplant needs a single of the throttle to spin the rubber and the ground beneath the wet leaves.

happens when taking it in first gear, but quick offs can easily be made in second gear with an longer and continuous accelerating The clutch is smooth engaging and the is quite precise so it will be to approach it like a dirt But when finding a straight of land and shifting an upper when only wanting to sure that you’re in fifth, surprise!

The sixth won’t harm anyone, but take their enjoyment further.

All through the rev range, thumper will deliver the it can: great torque down low, a powerful and never ending top. It is comparable to powerplants found on the and KTM models and its 72 horses clearly say heavy word.

Handling the 505 Enduro feels easy and very responsive to the bike’s 26.5 degrees in It seems that Benelli intended to make a clear between the BX 449 Cross and the Enduro 505 BX so the chassis is identical to the one found on its cousin.

Suspensions will be as expected, so that stability and reach the highest levels and end up endurance with their wheel travel at both
