The technical equipment of the little Leoncino is very manageable. There is an LC display with gear indicator, fuel level indicator, speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauge - that's it. Traction control or similar hats are not present. Why should it, with less than 15 hp you don't even need electronic driving aids or even assistance systems.
We are amazed at the light: full LED all around including the indicators. It is a mystery to us why some seasoned 800cc bikes (exactly, Suzuki GSX-8S) still have to make do with incandescent indicators, when even a 125cc for less than 3.500 euros demonstrates this as this Benelli.
However, the braking system of the Leoncino 125 is also puzzling to us. Instead of ABS, a combined brake is used. This means that Benelli meets the legal requirements, but in our opinion savings have been made in the wrong place. How it brakes and what this special braking system means, we clarify below.
