Benelli TRK 502 (2017 onwards)

The Benelli TRK 502 is an inexpensive adventure touring bike that is A2 licence compliant. Originally, Benelli is an Italian motorcycle manufacturer, but their bikes are actually produced in China. Therefore, the motorcycles are much more affordable to buy, but also less reliable compared to competition.

The motorcycle is available in two different versions, TRK 502 and TRK 502X. The first version of the bike is more road-oriented and it comes with a lower seat, while the X version is a taller bike with larger wheels and off-road suspension.

The Benelli TRK 502 is a big and heavy motorcycle, however it offers some benefits for long rides. The bike has a huge 20-litre tank and a pretty low fuel consumption. Also, its lower seat height means that is it an easy bike to ride. In, fact it is one of the best beginner friendly adventure bikes on the market. Unfortunately, the build quality and reliability of the motorcycle is not that great and it is very difficult to find spare parts in Europe.

So, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to bikes such as Honda CB500X or Suzuki V-Strom, then the Benelli TRK 502 is a great option. Just don’t expect it to be on the same level of quality.
