PRESS RELEASE

Satisfy your appetite for excitement with Benelli’s 3-Spark Plug 150S

The Benelli 150S prowls the streets of the dense urban jungle and stalks open back roads, day and night. Light, agile, and shockingly powerful, Benelli has unleashed a new beast entirely by channeling its world-class big-bike engineering capabilities and harnessing it in a compact package. With its advanced B3SP three-spark plug engine design, race-derived chassis, and mind-altering Italian styling, the 150S sits at the top of the food chain in the 150cc naked sport category.

This Benelli has been designed from the ground up for novice and experienced riders alike who want the convenience, light weight, and economic benefits of a smaller capacity motorcycle, yet refuse to compromise in their desire for the sort of performance, technology, and attitude typically reserved solely for bigger-bore machines.

One glance at the aggressive stance of the Benelli 150S makes its intentions known before it even issues a single snarl. Drawing the attention of onlookers as if by animal magnetism, the 150S merges fearsome form and ferocious functionality. Like the lion it proudly wears on its flank, the 150S is at once sinuous, graceful and stunningly beautiful, but also angular, muscular, and formidable in appearance.

And from the moment the 150S first rolls up alongside its streetfighter prey and lets out a trademark Benelli roar, there remains no doubt that it’s a beast for its rivals to fear.

But as awesome as it looks and sounds, perhaps nothing indicates just how deadly serious it is than a close inspection of its components. Benelli has leveraged the full extent of its big-bore expertise to make the 150S the technological showcase that it is.

The Benelli 3-Spark Plug System engine design offers superior combustion efficiency, allowing for performance, rideability, and acoustics beyond the capability of lesser naked sport motorcycles. Its liquid-cooled 149.8cc single-cylinder mill is optimized for outsized horsepower, major-league torque, and ultimate efficiency. Bristling with tech such as electronic fuel injection, TLI, and SOHC, the 150S boasts a 11.3:1 compression ratio and 15.5 horsepower at 8500rpm.

The 150S also stands as a stellar example of how track-derived technological advancements can be transitioned from the top of the podium and applied to the city streets. The engine is cradled in a GP-style twin-spar chassis, and its 17-inch, six-spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels and grippy rubber are connected to the bike via a stiff inverted front fork up front and sporty swingarm in the rear. Meanwhile, braking is powerful and progressive courtesy of 260mm (front) and 240mm(rear) twin-piston caliper disc brakes.

Comfort and convenience weren’t left behind in the search for ultimate performance. The 150S comes complete with a large, futuristic LED digital display that provides its rider with all vital information in a glance, and a sculpted dual-level saddle that includes hidden passenger grab handles.

Big on attitude and aggression, the Benelli 150S invites you to join in on its next hunt.

The 150S will be sold for RM8,588.00 for standard and RM8,888.00 for special edition (excluding road tax and insurance). There are three color options which is Lava Red, Space Black and Nitron Green. The 150S will be available in the market by the end of October.
