Keeway-Owned MBP To Debut In India With M502N Naked Bike

MBP is set to expand its brand to Asia by debuting in India at the Auto Expo 2023. 

  • MBP is a Keeway-owned motorcycle company based in Italy. 
  • MBP recently made the headlines with the all-new C650V cruiser. 


The Italian-origin (Chinese-owned) company will introduce itself in India with the M502N naked bike under the Adishwar Auto Ride India Pvt Ltd (AARI). 

A quick study of the MBP M502N’s spec sheet revealed the presence of plenty of quality components all around. Amongst them too is a nifty digital dash display. This seems to bode well not just with the bike’s styling, but also with its rather welcoming 790mm seat height.

Underneath its sharp and snazzy styling, the Keeway MBP M502N underpins a twin-spar chassis frame construction with a double-sided steel swingarm assembly. As for wheels and tyres, the MBP502N adopt 17-inch cast alloys wrapped in Pirelli Angel GT rubber.

Tasked with suspension duties is a pair of upsidedown (USD) KYB fork up front, whereas braking hardware is sourced from J.Juan featuring dual-piston calipers and twin 300mm discs up front plus a 240mm disc at the rear grabbed by single-piston caliper instead.

Crucially, the MBP M502N packs a respectably peppy 486cc parallel-twin that’s reportedly loosely based off of the unit found in the Honda CB500 series. It’s claimed 47HP output sees this naked presenting itself as a viable choice new riders.

The MBP M502N is set to go up against the Benelli Leoncino 500 and Honda CB500F in India.
