Benelli Leoncino “Dark Simba” Scrambler by K-Speed

Mar 6, 2018

Despite a seemingly elusive nature, there’s no denying K-Speeds prominence in building some of the most aggressively blacked-out custom rides around. Such a reputation recently caught the eye of Benelli Thailand – who requested the Thai workshop to give their new Leoncino the “treatment.” Needless to say, looks like K-Speed assertively delivered the goods for this latest build.

Featuring an overly-aggressive murdered-out aesthetic, this scrambler-style sled – now dubbed “Dark Simba” –  features some added off-road characteristics the crew felt were necessary additions to the project. Initial mods included lowering the handlebars a bit and swapping out the stock clutch and brake master for Brembo examples. The instrument display was then moved to the bar riser from above the headlight, and the rear frame was axed in favor of a new K-Speed-appropriate iteration that was built in-house. Additionally, a small mudguard is now situated in the bike’s rear and under the headlight along with some LED lights to boot, a custom saddle also replaces the stock version, and a pair of dirt-friendly Motoz Tractionator Adventure tires along with Brembo brakes and a shorter yet darker exhaust finishes everything off in a serious manner.
