So this will be making its way to India next year as a thunderbird Rival, it might just shake the market a bit if priced competitively.

I am more interested in the 402S, though not slated for India yet, That would mean trouble for the RE twins IMO.

Looks killer & has the go with the show.

The 402S looks and sounds absolutely delightful. And I really do hope Benelli doesn't miss out on bringing it to India. Will make a good competitor to the Dominar looks and performance wise.

Quite disappointed with the numbers on the Imperiale. Though it looks good and makes a good alternative to the Classics and T-birds from the RE stable; I think they've gone and outdone even Enfield on as low an output from maximum displacement of an engine. Those numbers show they're directly targeting RE. But I feel this is purposely being under powered and held back. This engine configuration can easily make 25 bhp and more torque also.

Anyway lets reserve the opinions once they're launched and the reviews are out and we get to ride it. For now my thumbs up for the 402S and thumbs slight down for the Imperiale.

Didn’t want to start a new thread for EICMA related update. But this pic surely will hurt the bike enthusiasts

Painful sight indeed! I mean what the hell were the ones doing guarding the Panigale V4?!
