An image from China has surfaced which appears to show Benelli’s future model plans.

The image in question is a photograph of a presentation slide that suggests that the Italian brand will reveal a 600-class sportsbike range towards the middle of this year.

It details ‘600RR’ and ‘600N’ models, with the former likely to be a full-fairing sportsbike model, and the latter a naked bike based on the same platform.

The slide also suggests that Benelli will reveal a larger version of its TRK502 adventure bike, known as the TRK800, which may be powered by the brand’s 745cc parallel twin used in the Leoncino 800.

Expected to make its debut at the 2020 EICMA show, the TRK800 should rival the likes of the BMW F 800 GS.

Benelli has had a strong few years, besting its previous record in 2019 by selling approximately 63,000 units worldwide.

The Italian company, which is now owned by Chinese group Qianjiang, is on track to be a market leader and shows no signs of slowing.
