DSK Benelli India has been increasing their product portfolio in India. Benelli launched the non-ABS variant of TNT 300 way back in 2015. The Italian manufacturer has now launched the ABS version of the same in India at Rs. 3.93 lakh, on-road, Delhi.
The Benelli TNT 300 is quite popular among the youths because of its performance and affordability. Even though Benelli has not sent any official launch details about the motorcycle but they have announced the same on their Twitter handle. The dealerships across India have started to take bookings for the same. A few Benelli dealerships also have the motorcycle on display. The motorcycle is roughly Rs. 16,000 expensive than the regular non-ABS bike.
Currently, the Benelli dealerships are taking bookings at an advance of Rs. 15,000. The motorcycle is delivered within a week from the booking date. Benelli has not done any changes to the motorcycle mechanically. It is still powered by the same 300cc liquid-cooled, the parallel-twin engine that generates a maximum power of 38 Bhp at 11,500 rpm and 26.5 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm.The power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a six-speed constant mesh manual transmission. The Benelli weighs 196 kg, which is quite heavy for a 300cc motorcycle but the good looks and the affordable price tag attracts a lot of buyers.

Other features like the upside-down telescopic forks at the front and mono shock suspension at the rear will remain as it is with the ABS version. The front wheel gets dual disc ABS while the rear is a single-disc brake set-up.
DSK Benelli is planning to expand its portfolio further in India. The company is planning to launch two more motorcycles in the Indian market. We expect the brand to show the Scrabler and the TRK 502 during the Auto Expo 2018.
