BENELLI 504 Sport 1980-1981

In 1980, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer introduced the Benelli 504 Sport, a middle-class naked two-wheeler created to satisfy the needs of riders with different experience levels and ages.

It was fitted with standard fittings, like a large, round headlight integrated into a cowl with a small windscreen, a one-piece dual seat with passenger grab handles, a four-into-two exhaust system with a silencer mounted on each side, a center stand, and 12-spoke aluminum alloy wheels.

The bike's riding characteristics were set by a double-cradle steel frame with a hydraulic telescopic fork mounted on the front and two side-mounted shocks on the rear with five-way spring preload adjustability.

As for the braking performance, the motorcycle's wheels were fitted with two 260 mm brake rotors on the front and a 260 mm brake disc on the rear. All discs were clamped by hydraulic calipers, offering optimum stopping performance.

As for the power figures, the 1980 Benelli 504 Sport had its soul brought to life by a 498cc four-stroke air-cooled four-cylinder engine mounted underneath its fuel tank, boasting 52 hp with a maximum peak at 9,400 rpm and 43 Nm (32 lb-ft) torque at 9,300 rpm.

The power was sent to the rear through a five-speed gearbox and a final chain drive, launching the machine to a maximum speed of 172 kph (107 mph).
