Benelli TRK 702X Overview
The TRK 702 X is a pure adventure bike, extremely versatile, agile and manoeuvrable, designed to tackle any type of route, both on asphalt and off-road, and built to ultimately embark on new and exciting adventures. Passion, freedom and fun in a single motorbike, whichever way you choose to go and with no limits on your desire to travel. The TRK 702 X is in fact a mature motorbike, ideal for those who want a solid, authentic and easy-to-use two-wheeler. A motorbike capable of guaranteeing optimum performance without ever putting the rider in difficulty, developed by the Benelli R&D department and Style Centre to expand the range of adventure bikes from the House of the Leoncino, positioned in the mid-range segment. A motorbike conceived and developed entirely in Pesaro, which features a unique and extremely recognizable design, shared with its road-orientated “sister”, with smooth and dynamic lines, giving this Benelli two-wheeler a very aggressive character, with a strong identity. The design of the TRK 702 X arose from the need to evolve the concepts introduced on the TRK Family. Consolidating and making the most characteristic stylistic design elements recognizable, transforming them into features characteristic of the TRK. Features such as the headlight, with a double LED module set into the iconic mask structure, or the design of the tank, with the area in contact with the rider’s legs made of metal, to ensure minimum volume and allow maximum freedom of movement, without compromising the capacity of the tank, a generous 20 litres. Other distinguishing features of the new TRK 702 X, shared with the other newcomers in the range, are the rear grab handles, which are generous and long to offer maximum comfort for the passenger, while at the same time providing a very important stylistic feature, defining the tail of the motorbike.
A design that integrates perfectly with Benelli’s brand new 698cc twin-cylinder front-mounted engine, designed as a result of the experience gained from the development of the 500cc and 800cc engines, from which this new platform was born. It features technical solutions already used in the past, but modified according to a logic of weight and size reduction. Just like the road version, the beating heart of the TRK 702X delivers 70 hp (51,5 kW) at 8000 rpm and 70 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm, always ready and punchy. It features double overhead camshaft timing with 4 valves per cylinder, with chain drive and crankshaft with crank pins offset by 180°. Electronic fuel injection with 41 mm double throttle body. The transmission unit, on the other hand, features a clutch-side removable 6-speed gearbox, assisted by a wet slipper clutch with torque converter, which significantly reduces the force to be applied to the clutch lever while maintaining smooth and precise gear engagement.
Again, in keeping with tradition, the bike features a trellis frame with a steel plate, derived from the 500 cc model, developed precisely to ensure maximum agility both on and off the road. The TRK 702 X’s optimum weight balance, designed to never put the rider in difficulty, makes it the perfect bike for the long haul, whatever the conditions. Not least due to the suspension set-up, which features an upside-down front fork with 50 mm legs and 140 mm travel, and an aluminum swinging arm with central monoshock with spring preload, hydraulic rebound and compression setting adjustable, with 50 mm travel (173 mm at the wheel). The braking system consists of a double 320 mm diameter disc on the front with two-piston floating caliper, and a 260 mm diameter disc on the back with a single-piston floating caliper. The 19” front and 17” aluminum alloy rims with steel spokes are fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR 110/80 and 150/70 tyres.
. Although the TRK 702X is definitely an adventure motorbike, special attention is paid to comfort and efficiency. Like the road version, this new two-wheeler features a large headlight fairing as standard, perfectly protecting both rider and passenger and backlit handlebar control block to provide maximum visibility even at night. As optional are heated handgrips and rider seat and the bike already offers the predisposition for installation. The TRK 702 X has a tank capacity of no less than 20 liters. The full LED light cluster offers an original and instantly recognizable design. This two-wheeler also offers a full LED headlight unit and a high-resolution 5” TFT colour display, which has a Bluetooth connection to link to your phone and display incoming calls and notification. The handlebar controls allow also answering or ending a call. Furthermore, by downloading an application to your mobile phone and connecting via wifi, through a phone-mirroring solution it will be possible to transform the dashboard of your bike into a navigator.
The Benelli TRK 702 X will be available at all Benelli dealerships in Anthracite Grey, Forest Green, Dune Sea and Moon Grey.
