Engine, Performance and Economy:
The power-mill that powers the bike is the 600cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder engine that is air cooled. This engine gulps down a concentrated dose of energy and pumps a reservoir of 60 kW of power at 11000 rpm with a torque of 55 Nm at 8000 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox that along with giving a slippery smooth power transfer fetches a desirable acceleration value in coordination with the engine.
The Benelli BN 600 is crafted precisely to display a fine stability with a more centre-oriented and lower centre of gravity. The throttle of the bike is all the more responsive for the potent 4-cylinder engine and the bike has a heavy handling that may feel impressive to a rider who likes a more manly handling. With the foot-pegs slightly swept back and the flat handles, the rider gets a dramatically sporty yet comfortable driving position. The wide rear wheel design of the bike allows easy manoeuvring around the corners. While the heavy throttling allows the bike to be easily controlled in the traffic.
