Faired Benelli TNT 302 is based on the TNT 300 which has seen major mechanical changes to the engine and chassis and is better performer and looker
Faired Benelli TNT 302 wasn’t expected but given the fact Benelli is doing really good in India and in Asian countries post Chinese giant takeover. It has begun to produce motorcycles in the same category as its rival. The 300cc faired motorcycle category started with the Ninja 300, now it has KTM RC 390 and Yamaha R3. Faired Benelli TNT 302 was first showcased at the Milan Motor Show (EICMA).
Faired Benelli TNT 302 does look very futuristic with its combined twin-headlights at the front. Fairing panels are all new on the side and the rear has been carried over from the TNT 300 with good amount of changes, such as new split seats, slightly tweaked rear cowl and mudguard is almost non-existent. The exhaust is another new unit which saves a bulk of the weight from the donor bike, TNT 300.
The Faired Benelli TNT 302 weighs in at 180 kgs when compared to 196 kgs, the TNT 302 is lighter and should be more quicker, faster and boast economical figures too than before. Faired Benelli TNT 302 is powered by the same 300 cc liquid-cooled inline twin-cylinder engine with 4-valves that is combined with a DOHC setup.
The engine now makes 34.5 BHP at a higher 12,000 RPM and the torque remain the same at 27 Nm. Sure it is behind the competition in every way such as kerb weight and horsepower but all of the aspects lie in the touring and comfortable capabilities that it offers. The brand also offers a lot of cosmetic options along with a track focused exhaust that can take the beloved BHP rating to 40 PS. 34.5 Has been done to emission norms and hence the stock exhaust is quieter too.
