Thoughts About The Benelli 302

Essentially the motorcycle is the next-generation TNT 300. The upgrades have been a long time in the making and it is great that Benelli is giving the motorcycle cosmetic upgrades along with the BS6 compliance. We hope the motorcycle does well for Benelli. As always, pricing plays the largest part, however we think a Rs 12,000 increase should be alright. We guess only time will tell.
