a 174cc four-stroke, four valves engine and matched with a six-speed transmission for more efficient
motorway speeds. The R18i is fitted with an inverted type telescopic fork front suspension which
typically only mounted on high-powered motorcycles for a more responsive handling feel and equipped with KYB adjustable mono-shock rear suspension. The Benelli R18i has a 34mm throttle body, a larger size that allows riders to feel an accelerating response and boost overall horsepower.
