Motorcycle Safety Guidelines
Safe Driving Rules
1. The vehicle shall be checked before driving, to prevent any accidents or damage to the vehicle.
2. The scooter should be ridden only by a rider who has
passed the required rider safety course and has obtained an
applicable driving license. The vehicle should not be operated
by any person(s) not in possession of an applicable driving
license.
3. The driver should be as visible as possible to prevent any
accidents caused by other vehicles, follow these rules:
•
Dress with bright tight-fitting clothes;
•
DO NOT follow other vehicles closely.
4. Strictly follow the traffic regulations, DO NOT try to cut in
and out of traffic or race.
5. Do not exceed the recommended speed limit, which is the
cause for many traffic accidents.
6. The turn signals shall be turned on when making a turn or
changing lanes, so as to attract other people’s attention.
7. The driver should pay special attention when approaching
intersections, to the entry and exit of parking lots, and on the
freeway.
8. Please drive with both hands, driving with a single hand is
extremely dangerous. The passenger shall grasp the safety rail
or clasp the driver, with feet placed on the footrests.
9. Your safety cannot be ensured if there is any modification
to your scooter or disassembly of original fittings, which will
impact the warranty.
10. Any accessory equipped shall not affect the safety and performance of the scooter. Overloading of the electrical system
is especially dangerous.
Warning
Wear a Safety Helmet
The helmet is the most important piece of motorcycle/scooter
safety equipment. Be sure to purchase a helmet that meets at
least the minimum DOT regulations and wear it at all times when
riding.
Dress when Driving
Your riding gear should be comfortable and highly visible. The
cuffs should be buckled before driving, to prevent your sleeve becoming caught on the brake lever. For driving safety, please wear
shoes with flat heels.
Notes on Rainy-day Driving
Drive with caution on slippery roads and on rainy days, because
the braking distance of the vehicle on a wet road is at least twice
as that of on a dry road. Please avoid riding on marked road paint,
manhole covers, and surfaces with greasy dirt, to avoid skidding.
Take special care when going through railway crossings, railings
and bridges. Reduce your speed when you fail to verify the road
conditions ahead visually.

Warning:
The battery will produce explosive gas, beware of using
open flames or sparks near the battery. Your battery is sealed and
should not be opened at any time. The battery contains sulfuric
acid (electrolyte) which can cause eye damage or skin burns.
Check Before Driving
The vehicle shall be inspected before driving to prevent accidents
caused by failure during driving, so as to ensure safe driving.
1. Check the Front and Rear Brake System
(1) The freeplay of the front brake handle and rear brake handle:
Front Brake Lever Freeplay: 10-20mm.
Rear Brake Lever Freeplay: 10-20mm.
“Free Play” refers to a travel distance of the end of brake
handle. The brake handle should be provided with proper free
play and operated smoothly with instant response.
(2) Check if the brake works normally
When driving on a dry road surface, reduce your speed, to
check if the front and rear brake systems work well. It should
be adjusted accordingly to make sure of optimized performance.
(3) Brake Fluid
DOT 4 Brake fluid is used for this motorcycle. Only use brake
fluid from a sealed container when topping off or replacing
the brake fluid. Brake fluid from an open container may absorb
atmospheric moisture which will cause the premature break
down of the brake fluid. Take care not to spill brake fluid on
plastic or painted surfaces as it can damage them.
Use caution when checking the level of
brake fluid in the master cylinder. If the
level is lower than the limit ①, the
brake fluid shall be refilled to the upper
limit. When the brake pads are worn,
the liquid in the master cylinder will
automatically feed into the brake line
which will reduce the level.
(4) Brake Pads
The brake pads shall be
inspected periodically to
check if the wear reaches
the wear limit.
If it reaches, the brake
pads shall be replaced immediately to ensure optimized brake
performance. If the brake system or brake pads require repair, we
advise you ask your local dealership for service. Your scooter utilizes a high pressure hydraulic brake system for braking. To ensure
proper safety, the hydraulic brake lines should be replaced every 4
years, and the brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years. Do not
ride immediately after replacing the brake pads. First squeeze the
front brake lever several times to restore proper braking pressure
and to fully push the brake pistons into their normal position. Also,
when riding the first time after replacing the brake pads apply the
brakes a few times at low speeds to optimize brake performance.
2.Fuel Check and Filling
Ensure the fuel quantity in the fuel tank is sufficient for driving the
miles planned.
When the fuel gauge reaches the final bar it will begin blinking
and it will light the amber low fuel warning light in the center of
the gauge cluster. When this happens approximately 0.5 gallons
of fuel remain in the fuel tank. When refueling use #91 octane
for optimum engine performance and service life of the engine.
Low octane fuels will cause damage to the engine or could lead to
engine failure.
Warning:
The engine should be turned off, ignition switch in
the off position, and away from heat sources and fire during
refueling.
Use caution not to overfill the fuel tank when refilling. DO
NOT fill the fuel level in the fuel tank above the filler neck.
3. Check and Replacement of Engine Oil
Using a high quality engine oil and replacing it frequently are
vital to the long term performance and durability of the engine. The engine oil level should be checked prior to vehicle
use each day and should be maintained at the upper dipstick
mark between preventative maintenance inspections.
Start the engine and allow it to idle for a few minutes to warm up
the engine oil, then turn off the engine and allow it to sit for one
minute:
① Place the scooter on the center stand, remove the dipstick and
wipe it using a clean rag.
② Reinsert the dipstick (DO NOT screw it in)
③ Remove the dipstick and check the oil level on the dipstick,
refill the engine if the level is below the upper level mark.
④ During the break-in period, the engine oil should be changed
at 200mi, 400mi, 600mi and 1000mi after this period, you should
change it every 2000mi.
⑤ The oil volume is 1.4 L, and 1.3L when replacing.
⑥ The oil volume shall not fall below the lower limit on the dipstick.
⑦ Driving on dusty roads, cold environments and places with
poor traffic conditions, may cause the degradation of the engine
oil. Please replace more frequently if used in these conditions.
⑧ Please use a high quality oil with high purity and performance which complies with SF grade or super grade. The type is
SAE10W/40.
Attention:
The oil level should be checked frequently during use,
please refill in a timely fashion if the oil level is low. The oil level
will be inaccurate if checked while the scooter is on an incline or
other uneven surface. Only check the engine oil when the engine
has been shut off and take care not to get burned by the hot engine surfaces.
The oil replacement procedure is as follows: (the replacement
should be performed after the engine has warmed up)
(1) Support the scooter using the center stand on level ground;
(2) Remove the engine oil dipstick once the engine has been
shut off;
(3) Place an oil pan below the engine oil drain bolt;
(4) Remove the engine oil drain bolt and completely drain the
oil;
(5) Reinstall the oil drain bolt and tighten;
(6) Fill the engine with new oil of the proper specification and
place the dipstick into the filler hole. Remove the dipstick and
check the oil level, if sufficient install the dipstick and screw it
in;
(7) Start the engine and let it run for 2-3 minutes at different
speeds and verify no oil leaks are present;
(8) Turn off the engine and wait 1 minute, remove the dipstick
and verify the oil is at the upper mark, if not add oil until the
level is correct.
4. Steering Stem Bearing Adjustment Inspection
Place the unit on the center stand and have someone sit on
the passenger seat to lift the front wheel off the ground.
Check the steering by turning the handlebars from left to right,
and right to left.
Check if the steering is too tight or too loose, check for clunking by lifting the front wheel slowly.
If an abnormality is detected contact your local dealership for
repair.
Special Attention
The valve clearance should be checked and adjusted
when the initial mileage reaches 200mi. The final drive oil
doesn’t need to be changed often, it should be changed every
year or every 3,000mi of use whichever comes first. However,
the cleanliness of the oil should be checked frequently. The oil
level should also be checked frequently and topped off when
low between replacement.
5. Brake Lamp Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to “
” position. Apply the front and
rear brakes respectively to make sure the brake lamp will light up.
Check if the brake lamp cover is dirty or damaged.
6. Turn Signal Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to “
” position. Operate the turn signal
switch to confirm if the left and right turn signal lamps work and
the steering indicator blinks. Check if the lamp cover is damaged
or dirty.
7. Check the Headlight, Taillight and Headlight High Beam
After the engine is started, confirm that the lights come on and
that the headlight high beam can be activated. Check if the light
covers are damaged or dirty.
8. Tire Pressure Check
Check the pressure of the front and rear tires.
Normal pressure (single rider):
Front wheel: 36 ±1 psi;
Rear wheel: 36 ±1 psi.
Check if any metal fragments
or broken stones are caught in the
tire grooves, if observed,
please remove them before driving.
When tire cracks or the tire wear reaches the limit, please replace the tire(s) with new. An abnormally worn tire is extremely easy to cause accidents.
9. Front and Rear Suspension Check
Sit on the scooter and apply the front brake, push the scooter
forward to compress the front suspension. Keep applying the
front brake and sit in the saddle abruptly from a standing position to compress the rear suspension to check if the front and
rear suspension is in good condition.
10. Speedometer Function Check
Check if each function of speedometer works properly.
11. Horn Check
Turn the ignition switch to “
” position, press the horn button to confirm the horn sounds.
12. Rearview Mirror Check
Sit on the seat cushion in your normal driving position to view
the rear-view mirror perspective and confirm the angles are
appropriate, you should be able to clearly see objects behind
you, and check if the mirrors are damaged or contaminated.
13. License Plate Check
Check if the license plate is damaged or loose.
14. Exhaust Check
Check if the exhaust pipe is loose or if it is making excessive
noise.
15. Check if the Previous Abnormality is Eliminated
16. Cooling Liquid Check and Supply
Coolant is critical to your liquid cooled scooter engine. If
there is no coolant in the engine during operation it may
cause sever damage to the engine. The piston, cylinder and
cylinder head could all become damaged if the engine is
run without coolant. Therefore, the coolant level should be
checked prior to use. If low, add coolant and bring the level
up to the proper level. The coolant is green and can be observed by looking through the leg shield vent on the left hand
side. Add coolant when the level is at or below the MIN mark.
To add coolant: support your scooter on the center stand,
open the glove box and remove the left inspection cover,
remove the coolant filler cover from the top left of the leg
shield. Rotate the cap (2) counterclockwise to remove it and
using a funnel add coolant to the cooling system observing
the coolant level (1) until it reaches the MAX mark.
Warning:
When the scooter engine is warm, DO NOT remove
the radiator cap, the coolant temperature is still very high
and it will spray out under pressure and can cause burns
if done so. Wait until the engine has cooled to check/add
coolant to the cooling system. .
Starting your Scooter
1. The fuel, engine oil, and coolant levels should be checked prior
to the engine being started and the fuel quantity should be sufficient to satisfy the driven mileage planned. The engine oil and
coolant levels should be between the lower and upper level. If
they are low, top off the levels to the MAX/Upper mark before
use.
2. Place the scooter on the center stand with the rear wheel off of
the ground.
3. Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to the “
position.
“
4. If starting electrically, pull in the front or rear brake handle.
5. If operating in cold temperatures and especially during the
winter start the engine and allow it to warm up before riding, then
wait for the coolant temperature gauge to read “C” before riding.
Attention:
After your FI scooter has started at low temperatures
wait for at least 2 minutes before exceeding 5,000RPM. This will
reduce the chances of lubrication drag causing internal engine
damage.
Warning:
Improper starting may pose a safety risk. When
starting the engine if the scooter is not on the center stand
it may rush forward. Before starting the engine, place the
scooter on the center stand and do not drop it from the
center stand until the engine is on and idling. DO NOT
twist the throttle until the scooter is ready to be ridden
away.
DO NOT start the engine in poorly ventilated places as
it poses a carbon monoxide poisoning risk. The engine
should be off when no one is around the scooter.
Scooter Operation
1. Lift the side stand or center stand
Push the scooter forward and the center stand will automatically return to the up position.
If using the side stand, lift the scooter to the vertical position then push the side stand to the up position. When
stopping the scooter, put down the side stand with your
left foot and lean the scooter to the left onto the stand.
Keep your foot on the side stand until it touches the
ground before getting off of the scooter.
Caution:
After the scooter starts and before riding, the
brakes should be kept applied.
Warning:
Before riding your scooter, check the position of the side
stand carefully. If the side stand is not returned to the original
position it may touch the ground when making a left hand turn,
this could cause the scooter to loose traction/balance which is
dangerous.
2. Release the brake lever.
Warning:
After the brake lever is released, DO NOT abruptly rotate
the accelerator to avoid the scooter suddenly rushing forward.
3. Slowly rotating the throttle, the scooter will start to move forward.
Warning:
DO NOT abruptly rotate the accelerator to avoid the scooter suddenly rushing forward.
4. Drive Safely
Before riding, turn on the turn signals to confirm safety and then
drive.
5. Speed is adjusted by the throttle:
● Rotate the throttle rearward……
Rotate the throttle rearward and the engine
will accelerate. Rotate the throttle slowly
to accelerate smoothly and slowly.
● Reset to the original position……
Rotate the throttle forward, the speed will
decrease. Return the throttle slowly to avoid
abrupt deceleration.
Warning:
Braking distances are proportional to the speed traveled.
You must estimate the distance between vehicles in front of you
and keep a safe distance to allow enough room for braking. Inexperienced riders often use the rear brake only. Using only the rear
brake can cause the scooter to become unstable when braking
and will accelerate brake wear.
6. Proper riding can prolong the service life of your scooter.
The initial mileage of 1,000mi is the break-in period of your
new scooter, please keep the speeds at 38mph or below
and avoid sharp acceleration. For details please refer to the
table below:
8. Emergency braking and sharp turns NOT recommended
Emergency braking and/or sharp turns are the main reasons for
wheel lock or low side crashes.

During the break-in period, the gearbox oil should be replaced under thermal condition.
7. Use the Front and Rear Brakes when stopping
Please use the front and rear brakes at the same time to
ensure better braking.
9. Take special care when riding on rainy road surfaces
Rainy days produce slippery wet roads, this will increase braking
distances. Reduce your riding speed and keep adequate distance
between yourself and the vehicles in front of you. On downhill
roads, close the throttle when operating the brakes and modulate
them to keep your scooter under control.
10. Parking methods
● When approaching a parking lot or driveway turn on your turn
signal early, check your mirrors, pay attention to passing vehicles
and gradually slow down.
Close the throttle, use the front and rear brakes so the tail lamp
will light up to warn the vehicles behind you.
● When parking
Turn off the turn signal, turn the ignition switch to the “ “
position. Place the scooter on a flat surface and support it on
the center stand.
Use your left hand to grasp the left handlebar and your right
hand on the passenger grab handle, step down on the center
stand lever and then pull back with your right hand. To use
the side stand, it is suggested that you get off of the scooter
and slide the side stand support down with your right foot
to the down position. After your scooter has been stability
parked lock the handlebars and remove the key to prevent
theft.
Warning:
When the engine is in operation the muffler will become hot. Avoid being burned. Once the scooter is parked,
DO NOT touch the muffler and related parts of the engine,
and pay attention that the muffler side of the scooter cannot easily burn passers by.
11. Trouble Shooting
If the engine can not start normally, please check the following items:
a. If their is sufficient fuel in the fuel tank.
b. Start the engine electrically several times, and check if fuel
sprays normally from the fuel injector.
c. If the fuel injector works normally, the ignition system should be
checked.
d. Remove the spark plug and touch it to the metal body of the
engine, then turn over the engine to check if any spark appears on
the spark plug, if no spark, please take your scooter to a dealership for inspection and repair.
Warning:
The proper maintenance procedure must be followed after
your new scooter mileage reaches 600 miles. Please make sure
to perform the periodical maintenance carefully and according to
the instruction manual.
Attention:
If you are unable/unaware of the failure on your scooter
return to your local authorized dealership for repairs. The dealership is in the best position to provide you with service and parts,
especially when your scooter is under warranty. DO NOT disassemble your scooter if under warranty, simply return to an authorized dealership.
Periodic Maintenance
In order to keep your scooter in optimum operational condition please perform periodical inspection and maintenance.
Any authorized Benelli dealership can provide you with any
service or maintenance needs you will have. For the time
schedule and item inspection list please refer to the maintenance schedule.
1. Transmission Oil Replacement
Full capacity of gear oil is 0.15L, 0.13L for replacement. When
done check if the gear drive box has any oil leakage.
Attention:
Add gear oil via the oil filler.
Too much or too little gear oil will affect engine performance. DO
NOT use gear oil of other brands or oil of poor quality.
If the scooter is used in bad conditions the gear oil should be
replaced more frequently.
2. Parts Lubrication
Proper lubrication is very important to keep every part of motorcycle in normal operation, prolong the service life and maintain
safe driving. After the scooter has been used for some time or
has become wet from rainfall or cleaning, we recommend that
you perform lubrication maintenance. For specific key lubrication
points please refer to the pictures below:
Park your scooter on the center stand and allow it to sit for
2-3 minutes after shutting the engine off. Loosen the gear oil
filler plug.
If the gear oil level is insufficient, refill with the appropriate
amount of gear oil via the filler plug hole (1). Replace the
transmission oil every year or 3,000 miles, whichever comes
first.
GL-5 85W/90 gear oil is recommended.

(1) Rear brake lever pivot bolt Z
When the initial mileage reaches 600 miles and again at 2,500
miles remove the spark plug and use a small wire brush or spark
plug cleaner to remove the carbon build-up from the spark plug,
then readjust the electrode clearance and measure it with a
gap gauge to ensure the clearance is between 0.5 ~ 0.7mm.
The spark plug should be replaced every 5,000 miles of use.
Spark Plug Type: NGK CR8E.
Please use the diagram below when reconnecting the fuel injection system hoses. This picture shows the connections between
the fuel injection system and the fuel pump assembly in the fuel
tank.
Caution:
The standard spark plug used in this scooter is
carefully selected, it is also applicable to a wide range or
working conditions, if replacing please replace with a plug
of the same type and quality. An improper spark plug can
cause serious damage to the engine.
Caution:
Use caution when installing the spark plug not to
cross-thread it which will damage the cylinder head. Install
the spark plug by hand then tighten using a wrench, DO
NOT over tighten the spark plug as this can also damage
the cylinder head. Use caution when the spark plug is removed not to allow impurities into the engine through the
spark plug hole.
5. Fuel Injector and Fuel Circuit
Fuel starts in the fuel tank and is pumped by the fuel pump
①, into the fuel filter ② and then into the fuel injector ③,
before it is injected in the cylinder for combustion.
• Idle Speed Adjustment
Start the engine and allow it to warm up adequately. After the
engine has warmed up, ensure the throttle is closed, then adjust
the idle screw ①, the engine should maintain an engine RPM of
between 1,400-1,600 RPM. The idle adjustment screw is on the
right side of the throttle body between the valve body and airbox
connection.
Caution:
The engine idle speed should only be adjusted once
the engine has been properly warmed up.
● Throttle Cable Adjustment
a. Loosen the lock nut①;
b. Rotate the adjuster ②
to adjust the clearance
of the cable to be between
0.5-1.0mm;
c. Tighten the lock nut ①
after the clearance adjustment.
6. Tires
The air pressure and tread depth of the tires should be
checked periodically. This will ensure the maximum safety and
prolong the service life, it should also be checked frequently
to ensure proper inflation which will keep the tires wearing
evenly.
7. Tire Pressure
Insufficient tire pressure will not only accelerate the wear of
your tires, but will also affect the driving stability. Insufficient
air pressure will cause steering difficulties, while excessive
pressure will reduce the tires contact patch with the roads surface which can lead to loss of grip which can lead to accidents.
The tire pressures must be maintained within the prescribed
limits. The tire pressures should be checked when cold (not
immediately after riding).
Warning:
Tire pressure and wear state are very important for motorcycle function and safety. Please check the measurement of tread
depth and pressure condition.
8. Lamp Specifications
The rated power for all of the light bulbs are listed below. When
replacing damaged bulbs, make sure to use bulbs with the same
rated power and specifications as the damaged one. If a bulb or
differing power or specifications is used it could lead to system
overload or premature failure.

Do not use fuses of improper amperage or non
fuse objects for fuse replacement as this could cause serious problems like fire or bulb failure or could even lead to
electrical shock. ONLY USE FUSES OF THE CORRECT AMPERAGE AND TYPE WHEN REPLACING.
13. Battery
This scooter uses a maintenance free battery. To activate a new
maintenance free battery first fill it with electrolyte matched
to the battery that is being filled and prepared. Please have an
authorized Benelli dealer assist you in the filling and charging
of your maintenance free battery for safety.
The battery is located in the battery box in the foot-well of the
scooter. To remove the battery, follow the procedures below:
a. Turn off the ignition switch;
b. Open the seat;
c. Remove the battery cover screws and then remove the cover;
d. Remove the negative terminal (-) bolt, and then remove the
positive terminal (+) bolt;
e. Gently remove the battery from the battery box.
Install the battery in reverse order of removal.
Caution:
When reinstalling the battery, make sure that the battery
terminals are connected properly. If the battery wires are connected in reverse, it will cause damage to the electrical system
and the battery itself. The red terminal needs to be connected to
the positive terminal (+), the black terminal needs to be connected to the negative terminal (-). Make sure the ignition switch (key)
is shut off when replacing the battery.
When filling electrolyte for maintenance-free batteries, please
follow these requirements:
a. Place the battery on a clean, flat surface, then tear off the sealing tape;
b. Remove the electrolyte container from the plastic bag, remove the black plastic cap from the electrolyte container and set
it aside. Attention: DO NOT remove or pin prick the sealing film
on the liquid electrolyte container. Keep the black plastic cap to
seal the battery once the electrolyte in filled and the battery is
prepared;
c. Flip the electrolyte container upside down and align the 6
ports on the battery with the 6 electrolyte containers. Press the
electrolyte container down firmly to pierce the foil film and begin filling the battery;
If no bubbles appear, squeeze the container slightly to begin
filling the cell in question. Note: DO NOT place the battery and
electrolyte container on an angle as it will effect the flow of electrolyte into the battery.
f. Once the battery is completely filled, use the black plastic cap
we removed earlier from the electrolyte container and affix it to
the top of the battery to seal the open electrolyte filling holes.
After confirmation that the cap is squarely over the top of the
battery press the cap into place until the cap and the top of the
battery are flat.
Once this cap is installed in place, DO NOT remove it and DO
NOT add any additional fluid to the battery after the cap has
been installed.
To replace the battery, please pay attention to the following:
When replacing the battery, confirm the motorcycle model, and
verify if the battery specifications are consistent with the original equipment battery. The specifications of your battery are
considered to best match with your motorcycle design. If using a
battery of different specifications, it may affect the motorcycle’s
performance and service life, and may also lead to circuit failure.
d. Confirm that at least one filler pipe on each half of the battery
has bubbles coming out of it. Allow the electrolyte to drain for at
least 20 minutes.
If neither of the two sides begins to bubble then gently tap on
the bottom of the electrolyte container 2-3 times, do not remove
the container until it has completely drained;
Warning:
e. After the electrolyte has completely drained, tap on the conThe battery will produce explosive gas from its chemical reaction,

The battery is filled with sulfuric acid (electrolyte). Skin or eye
of electrolyte from the top of the battery; be sure not to drip any contact can cause serious burns. Electrolyte is a toxic substance,
electrolyte on your skin or clothing;
keep it away from children and pets.
Air Filter Maintenance
The air filter is installed near the left side of the rear wheel. If
the air filter is dirty, it will increase intake resistance which will
in turn reduce output power from the engine, meanwhile fuel
consumption will also increase. To achieve the best filtration
the air filter should be maintained as follows:
a.) Remove the left side cover (1), then remove the 10 screws
securing the airbox lid to the airbox (2);
b.) Remove the foam air filter from the airbox;
c.) Clean the filter using a high quality foam filter cleaner and
let it fully dry;
d.) Oil the air filter using a high quality foam filter oil and wring
out any excess oil before installation.
Reinstall the air filter element in reverse order of above.
Caution:
As gasoline and low-flash solvent are highly flammable substances, they shall not be used for cleaning the
air filter.
Storage Guide
For long-term storage, clean all parts of the scooter, and
remove the battery. If storage is to exceed one month, add
about 15ml of oil into the cylinder and turn over the engine
several times with the spark plug removed to spread the oil
out evenly. Park the scooter in a dark room that maintains
a moderate temperature. If the scooter is not stored in this
fashion before storage: clean the vehicle, check the battery
and conduct a comprehensive inspection before driving.
