After a long time, Benelli Nepal launched a scooter in the country. In the past, there used to be a Benelli Zen Zero which was a 150 cc scooter. During that period, the 150-cc scooter wasn’t quite popular and Benelli Nepal stopped selling it. But recently, Benelli Nepal has come up with a brand-new scooter: Benelli Panarea 125.

Nowadays, scooters are getting as much love as bikes. Parallelly, scooters are getting powerful too. If Benelli brings back the ZenZero 150, there is a high possibility that people will like it. Keeping it aside, let’s focus on Benelli Panarea 125. It is a classic-looking scooter and also a powerful one. Here, we will discuss more about this scooter in detail.

Benelli bikes and scooters are imported by KTM International Trading Pvt. Ltd in Nepal. They are also the authorized distributor of Keeway bikes in Nepal. Keeway brand has two bikes in Nepal, Keeway K-Light 202 and Keeway Patagonian Eagle 250. Both of them are cruiser bikes, whereas Patagonian Eagle is slightly towards the chopper bike model.

Starting with the looks, the Benelli Panarea 125 has a unique retro classic look. The headlamp is placed at the pod of the handlebar which is quite similar to the Vespa models. It holds a LED headlight in it but the pod isn’t circular giving the Panarea a modern touch. Whereas the front shell has a similar look to Vespa and Lambretta scooters. The front shell contains the side indicators and small vent-type lines which might help in aerodynamics. Side indicators also have a modern touch.

Moving on, the seat looks quite comfortable, for both rider and pillion. The body looks classic and stylish. Even the foot rest area is quite enough for the rider. Looking at the dash, there is a digital-analog cluster. Moreover, it has the Engine Kill Switch which is a must-needed feature. It also has a USB charging port and a pocket to keep small items.

The 125cc Panarea is built with a disc brake on the front and a telescopic suspension. The rear has a drum brake and the shock absorber is placed as a single-sided swingarm. The taillight of this scooter has a unique design for lighting as well as the grab rails. This scooter weighs 104 Kg which in my opinion is perfect for a 125cc scooter.

Engine, Transmission

Talking about the engine and its performance, it comes with a 125-cc engine. It is an air-cooled, Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI), SOHC 4 stroke, 2-valve, and single-cylinder engine. It can generate a maximum power of 8.5 hp at 7500 RPM. Similarly, it can generate a max torque of 9.2 Nm at 6000 RPM.

With that torque, you can ride in hills easily. The fuel tank has a capacity of 4.6 liters only, which is a downside for me. You will need to fuel it up very frequently in the range of 120 to 130 Km. Additionally, it features a CVT transmission type which delivers better power efficiency.
