The updated Benelli TNT 600 will sport minor cosmetic changes including a new LED headlight and a fully digital TFT display. Powering the TNT 600 will be the same motor as before, but it will now be BS VI compliant
Ever since some images of the new Benelli TNT 600i leaked online, there has been a lot of talk about it coming to India. In our previous reports we told you that the new design may not make it to Indian shore. Now the company has taken the wraps off the 2020 TNT 600 and it looks pretty much like the model it replaces. The most noticeable change on the refreshed TNT 600 is the newly designed LED headlight. Gone is the V-shaped headlight and in its place comes a new vertically stacked unit. Other changes include a fully-digital TFT display for the instrument cluster. While its images or details haven’t been revealed as yet, it will surely flaunt a lot more information than the semi-digital display from the outgoing model. Everything else remains more or less unchanged. The overall silhouette is the same as the TNT 600i we know except for some new graphics on the tank extensions.
Hardware on the new 2020 TNT 600 remains the same too. At the heart, it sports a 600cc inline four motor that is good for 82bhp and 54.6Nm. This engine comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. Braking and suspension hardware is unchanged too. At the front, the TNT 600 is fitted with dual disc brakes while the rear wheel has been plonked with a single disc. Based on a steel trellis frame, the TNT 600 gets 50mm USD forks up front and a preload and rebound adjustable monoshock at the rear.
Expect the new TNT 600 to be priced marginally higher than the model it replaces when it gets launched sometime next year.
