This is definitely the best time If you are planning to get your hands on the Benelli TNT 300 or the fully faired TNT 302R. Believe it or not, the Benelli TNT 300 has received a price cut of Rs. 51,000 while the 302R has received a price cut of Rs. 60,000. Following the price reduction, the TNT 300 prices start at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the 302R retails at Rs 3.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The two-wheeler manufacturer has said that price revision is due to a reduction in manufacturing costs at the source. Benelli bikes are brought and sold in India as completely knocked down (CKD) units from China. The two-wheeler manufacturer has managed to reduce the total manufacturing cost in China that automatically resulted in a reduction in overall pricing in the country.
For those of you who are not aware, Benelli has partnered with Adishwar Auto Ride India – Mahavir Group last year. They have not only introduced new and exciting motorcycles recently but are also planning to get a grip over the competitive 200-300cc segment as well.
As far as these motorcycles are concerned Both the TNT 300 and the TNT 302R share the same powertrain and underpinnings. The motorcycles are powered by a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin motor. This unit produces about 38.8 PS of peak power and 26.5 Nm of peak torque.
The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Both the motorcycle uses an upside down forks at the front and a monoshock unit at the rear. They rely on a pair of 260m disc brakes towards the front and 240 mm rear disc to bring them to a halt. A dual channel ABS is also offered as standard for the safety of the rider.
In terms of competition the Benelli TNT 300 rivals directly against the likes of the KTM Duke 390 and the recently introduced BMW G310R. The TNT 302R, on the other hand, locks its horns with the KTM RC390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the TVS Apache RR310.
