The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

  The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven The 2022 Rivian R1T is the first mass-produced electric truck to hit the U.S. market, but that’s hardly the most interesting thing about it. Its electric powertrain notwithstanding, the R1T is unlike any pickup we’ve ever driven—part truck, part sport sedan, and 100 percent amazing. It’s been speculated that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first drive in a pre-production Rivian R1T, both on-road and off-, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers.

The success of the Benelli Leoncino 125 is not likely to oppose much, because it combines two currently promising ingredients: lightweight power wheel (125s) plus retro look. It is a pity but that it only rolls with CBS instead of ABS only.

Benelli is currently expanding its model range in all directions. The smallest Leoncino brings a pleasant retro design into the beginner class, but as the larger brothers can convince technically.

new engine with 12.8 instead of 11 PS

The new liquid-cooled and higher-compacted single-cylinder motor should push something stronger than the other Benelli entry-level bikes. It provides 12.8 hp (9.4 kW) at 9,500 / min and 10 nm at 8,500 / min. Further features of the new Benelli Leoncino 125: above camshaft, 4 valves per cylinder, electronic fuel injection with throttle (28 mm diameter), wet coupling and 6-speed gearbox. The consumption should be at only 2.2 liters at 100 kilometers.

CBS instead of ABS

The LEONCINO 125 chassis consists of a steel pipe frame made of steel and an upside-down fork with 35 millimeters in diameters, while on the rear, a swingarm is used with central monofederbone and 53 millimeters of travel. Unfortunately, the Benelli Leoncino 125 must do without an ABS as the Naked Bike Benelli BN 125 and the compact window Benelli TNT 125. The combined brake system (CBS) automatically distributes the braking force on the front and rear wheel brake but does not prevent the front wheel braking. At the LeonCino 125, there is a floating single pane with 280 mm diameter front and a 220 mm disc rear.

The 17-inch alloy wheels are equipped with tires of the dimension 110/80-R17 or 130/70-R17, the headlamp is set to LED technology and the cockpit is digital.

The Benelli Leoncino 125 is available from spring 2022 in two colors - gray and green -. A price is not fixed yet.
