Video: A Motocross bike from Benelli!

Check out our World exclusive video of Benelli’s brand new BX449 motocross bike, which we caught by chance, when we visited the Italian factory earlier this month.

Better known for their superbikes and funky roadsters, Benelli’s new 52bhp, single-cylinder, 449cc competition off-roader features innovative ideas like a single-piece ‘monolith’ crankcase and a removable carbon fibre frame rail, which can be replaced to make the chassis less or more rigid, to suit the competition rider.

The BX499 is due to be released in Oct/Nov this year and a fuel-injected enduro and supermoto model will follow next year.
