Benelli Introduces the Classica to America. Finally an E-bike With Style and Panache

WILLOW GROVE, Pa Dec. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/.- Boasting over a century of passion for two wheels and a renowned history of exquisite Italian motorcycles, Benelli makes its electric bicycle (e-bike) debut in the USA. The launch of the Benelli Classica model kick-starts the delivery of a line-up of pedal-assist e-bikes with European flair. Packed with plenty of punch and gorgeous Italian design, the e-bike market finally welcomes a stylish contender.

Inspired by the original 1920s hybrid Benelli which was halfway between a bicycle and a motorcycle, the Classica e-bike was conceived for the urban streets, offering a top speed of 20 mph and a range up to 40 miles. Although it can be enjoyed without pedal-assist, the patented Twist Shift LCD control quickly allows the rider to engage the motor and easily change the power level while hands remain on the handlebars. Integrated display informs rider of battery capacity, current speed and total distance. A Shimano Nexus 8 speed internal hub eliminates a derailleur, providing a low maintenance solution and allows gear changes even when stopped. The sturdy aluminum frame is fitted with alloy wheels and puncture-resistant tires, ensuring stability and reliability in all conditions. A light-weight lithium battery pack, featuring Samsung cell technology, is concealed in the front frame resulting in better handling and balance, freeing the rear rack for mounting bags, groceries or a child seat.

At a MSRP of 2,100 USD. luxury is not out of reach. Projecting elegant Italian bravura throughout, the Classica is finished with a Gyes leather seat and grips and is offered in the timeless colors of white, cream and black. The low step-thru frame design and choice of 26 or 28 wheels provide optimum height and comfort, making the Classica fun for all types of riders around town, at the beach or on campus.

The Classica provides a chic option for those choosing to be green without foregoing style. Aside from looking fabulous, it provides limitless benefits. covering longer distances, stress-free travel, conquering hills with ease, reducing fuel costs and pollution and, of course, enjoying the great outdoors.

Available for immediate delivery, the Classica is now stateside at select boutiques and specialty bicycle dealers. Benelli Bicycles are distributed exclusively through Ferracci Distribution.

Benelli e bike

The use of electric-assist bicycles (“e-bikes”) has grown rapidly over the last 5 years. Modern e-bikes often look indistinguishable from a “regular” bike but have robust batteries and technology which are capable of sensing when a rider needs a helping hand over a hill, into a headwind, or accelerating from a stop. While e-bikes have existed for years, recent advances in technology have allowed batteries to become smaller, lighter, cheaper, and longer range, enhancing the usefulness, appeal, and affordability of these machines. E-bikes appeal to many types of people but particularly for those who use them as a tool to overcome limited physical fitness, for people running everyday errands who want to carry heavier loads, and for parents transporting children. In addition, several bike share systems have begun adding e-bikes to their fleet in Pioneer Valley, in the LimeBike network, and elsewhere around Massachusetts, enhancing the appeal of bikeshare for everyday riding.

Current E-Bike Laws in Massachusetts

As of August 10, 2022, the e-bike definition language was signed into law as amendments to the Transportation Bond Bill (H.5151 ) to include Class 1 and Class 2 definitions for e-bikes. This law went into effect 90 days from signing, on November 8, 2022.

CLASS 1: Bicycle equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph, with an electric motor of 750 watts or less. CLASS 2: Bicycle equipped with a throttle-actuated motor that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph, with an electric motor of 750 watts or less.

Note: MassBike will continue to advocate for a Class 3 definition in order to match MA law with federal definitions and statewide regulations set by the Department of Conservation of Recreation.


E-bike riders are afforded all the rights and privileges related to all bicycle riders, except that e-bikes are not allowed to be ridden on sidewalks.

Class 1 and Class 2 electric bicycles are not considered to be motorized bicycles as further defined in MA law, as such are allowed on bikeways and bike paths, however a local jurisdiction may regulate and prohibit their use, but only after a public notice and public hearing.

E-bikes are not allowed on natural surface trails (ie. mountain bike trails) unless otherwise permitted by a local jurisdiction.

The Previous Law

Before the e-bike definition amendment passed in the Transportation Bond Bill, there was no designation with which to regulate e-bikes. However a “motorized bicycle” is defined as having a helper motor with a cylinder capacity not exceeding fifty cubic centimeters, an automatic transmission, and which is capable of a maximum speed of no more than thirty miles per hour. Motorized bicycle riders must be licensed, and are prohibited from off-street pathways.

The lack of similar designation for e-bike riders left ambiguity in where electric bicycles should be ridden on paths, trails, and sidewalks.

E-Bike Rebates

Thanks to Representative Natalie Blais (1st Franklin), the Transportation Bond Bill included a provision for 1M to establish a state rebate program to offset the cost of e-bikes with 500 rebates to consumers – and 750 rebates for low-income consumers. The bill directs the Department of Energy Resources to evaluate offering electric bicycle rebates at the point of sale through Massachusetts owned and operated bicycle retailers. This is a bond authorization that still needs to be included in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to be allocated, which is done by the Governor’s administration. Typically, the finance teams will begin this work early next year in 2023, with a plan released in late May or early June. Once the funding is included in the CIP, the grant program can be announced.

MassBike is advocating for the ability to apply the rebate retroactively, which is still in discussion.

Interested in e-bike rebates? You can elevate the issue by contacting your local State Representative and Senator to ask for their help making sure the CIP includes this rebate when finalized in 2023.

National Legislation

There is a bill in the House of Representatives, Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment Act or the E-BIKE Act, which would allow a refundable tax credit for 30% of the cost of a qualified electric bicycle. You can see the full bill here: H.R. 1019. E-Bike Act

QJ7000D is expected to be launched in China in the next few months – A Benelli-branded version of the same is likely to launch in select countries

Electric mobility is a fast-growing space with new launches and unveils taking place almost every other day. It is a space where many established auto brands find themselves competing against relatively new brands or startups. Benelli is one such automaker who is eager to step into the two-wheeler electric segment.

Earlier in June this year, Qianjiang Motors, Benelli’s parent company, introduced the QJ7000D electric motorcycle at 2021 Beijing Motor Show. Speculations suggested that this bike would hit showrooms of international markets re-branded as Benelli. Recently, spy images of the final production-spec QJ7000D were leaked on the internet.


Going by images, the production model looks very similar to the pre-production concept at the annual auto show earlier this year. It gets a beefy profile towards the front, while the rear section is much sleeker.

The front face features a split LED headlamp setup surrounded by angular fairing on sides. It gets a muscular faux tank mimicking contemporary supersport motorcycles which is hollow from inside and can store a full-face helmet.

The bike also features a signature upswept floating tail section and a V-shaped windscreen. The motorcycle’s fairing gets a dual-tone colour theme of blue and grey which creates a nice sporty contrast with the blacked-out components of the frame, motor and alloy wheels.

It offers a sporty and committed riding posture with a clip-on handlebar and slightly rear-set footpegs. Other styling highlights include split seats, a rear tyre hugger and uniquely shaped rearview mirrors.

Electrical, Mechanical Specs

As the name suggests, QJ7000D is likely to be equipped with a 7kW electric motor. However, the Chinese bikemaker claims that it gets a 10kW (13.4 bhp) motor which should propel the motorcycle to a top speed of almost 105 kmph. This puts it in the same ballpark as conventional 150cc IC engine-powered bikes. The electric motor will draw energy from a 72V, 60Ah battery pack which is claimed to deliver a range of 100km on a single charge.

Coming to its hardware package, suspension duties of the bike will be carried out by USD telescopic forks at front and a mono-shock at rear. Stopping power is achieved from petal-shaped disc brakes on both ends while the bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.


Further, QJ700D is equipped with an unusual manual transmission that comprises conventional controls including a bar-mounted clutch lever and a foot-operated rear brake and gear shifters. Other features include a fully digital LCD instrument panel that displays a range of information such as speed, gear position, battery percentage, distance travelled, time, etc. The instrument console is likely to offer Bluetooth connectivity as well.
