Italian bike manufacturer Benelli has launched five new superbikes in collaboration with DSK Motorwheels during an unveiling ceremony in Mumbai today.
The cheapest in line is the TNT 302 that uses a 300cc, four-stroke engine to churns out 36 bhp. It is available in two tyre choices with the top-end version equipped with Pirelli rubber. This machine can be all yours for Rs. 2,83,000(ex-showroom Delhi).
And then there’s the flagship TNT R that produces a staggering 155 bhp - more than your average and far heavier road car - from its 1,131 cc engine. With power, comes a hefty price tag of Rs 11,81,000.
DSK Benelli has high hopes from the Indian market. As part of their launch, they also unveiled a new showroom in Mumbai today. Their dealership will eventually extend to tier-two and tier-three cities.
Commenting on the launch, George Wang, Board Director, Benelli said, “It gives me great pleasure to witness the launch of Benelli bikes in India. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner than DSK Motowheels, a veritable leader in this segment in the country.”
“We see immense, hitherto untapped potential in the Indian superbiking space and our focus will be to offer the Indian biking enthusiasts the experience of owning the Italian legacy. We are happy to herald a new era in this industry with our top-of-the-line range of superbikes.”
