Benelli Confirms US Specs And Pricing For All-New TRK 702X

A new flagship adventure model hits US shores for 2024.

Published on 02.09.2024

The Benelli TRK family in the US market has grown with the introduction of the flagship TRK 702X adventure tourer. First shown at EICMA in 2022, the bike is the more rugged version of the TRK 702, joining the TRK 502 and TRK 500X models that arrived in America a few years ago.

Although owned by Chinese giant Qianjiang, Benelli says the TRK 702X was developed by their R&D and Style Center in Pesaro, Italy. At its heart is a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 698cc parallel twin pumping out a claimed 70 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 51.6 ft-lbs of torque at 6,000 rpm. Notably, it features a clutch-side removable 6-speed gearbox, with a wet slipper clutch and torque converter, which Benelli says significantly maintains smooth and precise gear engagement despite any conflicting wheel speed to engine rpm.

The TRK 702X chassis is a steel trellis and plated frame fronted by upside down 50 mm fork legs with 5.5 inches (140 mm) of travel, along with an aluminum swinging arm in the rear with a mono-shock featuring 6.8 inches (173 mm) of travel and three-way adjustability (preload, rebound, and compression). Seat height is a reasonable 32.5 inches (825 mm) while Benelli claims the bike tips the scale at 474 lbs.

The braking is by dual 320 mm discs up front, each with a two-piston floating caliper. A single 260 mm diameter disc on the rear has a single-piston floating caliper. The 19” front and 17” rear rims are aluminum alloy with steel spokes, fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 tires.

On the cockpit, the TRK 702X features a 5” TFT color display, with Bluetooth connectivity to link to a smartphone to display incoming calls and notifications. The handlebar controls allow answering or ending calls and a smart-phone app connected via WIFI can transform the dashboard into a navigation system. The handlebar controls are backlit, and USB and USB C sockets are standard. 

The fairing carries double LED headlights, the fuel tank holds 5.3 gallons (20 liters), rear grab rails are standard for passenger security, and all lighting is LED. A center stand is standard equipment.

Options include heated handgrips and rider seat, an oversized windscreen, lower engine guard, protection bars, side bags and top box. 

Available colors are Anthracite Grey, Forest Green, White, and Moon Grey, and the MSRP is $8,499.

TRK 702 Version

The TRK 702 has the features of the TRK 702X, except for the 17 wheels front and rear, rolling on 120/70ZR17 and 160/60ZR17 tires for those desiring adventures primarily on pavement. Also, the center stand is an option. Front fork travel remains unchanged at 5.5 inches (140 mm) of travel, while the rear axle travel is reduced to a still-opulent 6.0 Inches (154mm). The front brakes have increased power and feel for the added traction of paved roads, featuring dual 320 mm semi-floating discs up front mated to four-piston calipers. The rear is the same as the X version with a 260 mm diameter disc and a single-piston caliper.

Options include heated hand grips and rider seat, an oversized windscreen, lower engine guard, protection bars, side bags and top box, and center stand. The Benelli TRK 702 is available in Anthracite Grey, Forest Green and Pearl White, and has an MSRP of $7,899.

I wonder how those Italians like working for their Chinese whip cracking overlords. More likely, Benelli’s Italian R&D center consists of one old man who rubber stamps all Chinese designs that come across his desk so that they can claim “designed in Italy!”

Seriously? Your logic makes as much sense as putting a snooze button on a smoke alarm

Benelli was my first ever big motorcycle. And I took it for an ultimate test trip a week after I got it. In 3 years of riding my trk502x around South America all the way to the bottom of the world and back, I’ve heard it all about “Chinese bike”, every smart and sassy comment. I simply state this – I took it to every challenging situation during my 55,000km trip. Half of it was serious off road and nastiness, terrible road conditions, 16k feet altitude rides, fully loaded at all times. It never failed me. It never had to be rescued. I don’t care who and where designed it and “rubber stamped” it. It’s simply a good machine. To belittle it on the basis of its origins – in my opinion is shortsighted :).

My 502 (base) is a great machine. I also have the Leoncino 500, and ride the piss out of it off-road and on. My 502 was recently totaled and I liked it so much I was planning to buy another just like it… but now I’m going to wait for the 702 I think.
