Benelli Imperiale 400 (2020 onwards)

When it comes to affordable classic motorbikes, Royal Enfield is the brand that has been dominating the niche for the last couple of decades. However, there is an Italian company called Benelli and the prices of their motorcycles are even more attractive than the competitor’s.

The Benelli Imperiale 400 is an A2-friendly classic bike that comes with an air-cooled engine made in China. But, don’t let this turn you off. The engine is pretty reliable and it is a high-quality bike in general. The riding experience is relatively smooth, just don’t expect to get a lot of performance out of it.

The Imperiale 400 is a very basic machine that doesn’t offer the most modern technology you can find in some other bikes. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive motorcycle for your A2 licence and you prefer the retro style, then go for it!
