Design: The bike is built around a steel trellis frame

It has a digital instrument cluster, adjustable footrests, a 21.5-liter fuel tank, and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.

On the road: The tourer offers disc brakes on both the wheels
On the safety front, the Benelli 502C is equipped with dual disc brakes on the front wheel and a single disc brake on the rear side. It also gets dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the urban cruiser are handled by 41mm upside-down forks on the front and a preloaded adjustable central shock absorber on the rear side.
