DSK-Benelli has introduced the ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) variant of the TNT 300 in India. The company has recently launched the 302R fully faired motorcycle in the country with ABS.
The TNT 300 is the third motorcycle in the DSK-Benelli's product portfolio to get ABS after the TNT 600i and the 302R.
Several dealerships across the country have confirmed to DriveSpark that the bookings for the TNT 300 ABS have already commenced. The motorcycle can be booked by making a payment of Rs 25,000, and the deliveries will begin in a few days. The motorcycle will be priced at Rs 3.29 lakh ex-showroom (India).
The Benelli TNT 300 draws power from a 300cc liquid cooled twin-cylinder engine producing 37bhp and 26.5Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The same engine is deployed in the 302R.
The 300cc naked motorcycle features upside down forks up front and monoshock suspension setup at the rear. Braking duties are handled by dual discs at the front and a single disc at the rear.
The kerb weight of the TNT 300 stands at 196kg and gets a 16-litre fuel tank. The underbelly exhaust ensures that the weight is well balanced for superior handling. The TNT 300 is available in four colour options - green, white, red and black.
DSK-Benelli also plans to launch Leoncino scrambler motorcycle in India in November 2017. In 2018 the company is likely to introduce the TRK 502 adventure motorcycle in 2018.
DSK-Benelli has finally introduced the ABS variant of its naked motorcycle, the TNT 300 in India. The motorcycle will rival the likes of KTM Duke 390, Mahindra Mojo and Kawasaki Z250. The notable point is that only the Duke 390 gets ABS.
