Highlighting the contemporary design of the Leoncino 250, the steel tube trellis frame fits perfectly with the tank design, offering balanced and dynamic surfaces, as does the tail guard which is extremely compact.

The suspension of the Leoncino 250 consists of a 41mm upside-down fork on the front, while the back-end has a swinging arm with a pre-load adjustable monoshock.
The braking system includes a 280mm floating disc with a four-piston caliper on the front and a 240mm disc with a single-piston floating caliper at the back with Dual-Channel ABS. The 17" aluminium alloy rims mount 110/70-R17 and 150/60-R17 tyres at the front and rear respectively, ensuring maximum road safety.
