I am a big fan of the classics and the Benelli Imperiale 400’s retro styling instantly appealed to me. It reminded me of motorcycles I fancied as a boy and I look forward to spending more time with it over the coming months. Having spent almost a week with it, I am happy to report that the motorcycle has done nothing to dampen my spirits yet. Its riding position is comfortable and the motorcycle itself is rather manoeuvrable; certainly makes my commute to office easy. One of the things I particularly like about this Benelli is the way it carries itself. It looks and sounds distinct but in a subtle, unassuming way. In a word, I would say, elegant.
