Benelli Leoncino 500 (2018 onwards)

The Leoncino 500 is a Chinese-made street scrambler from the Italian brand Benelli. This A2 bike is priced reasonably, but don’t expect the same build quality as from some higher-tier bikes in this category.

It is not a bad bike by any means, as it handles really well and is a lot of fun to ride. It is an easy-to-ride middle-sized naked motorcycle that has an interesting design and a lot of character. However, some owners are reporting issues with early rusting. Also, its forks are way too big for a street bike.

But, no matter what anyone says, the Benelli Leoncino 500 is a great A2-friendly motorbike that looks really good and it is extremely affordable to buy.
