300cc Benelli motorcycles are now affordable by a huge margin in comparison to their older prices in India. The most affordable motorcycle from the brand is TNT 300, getting a massive INR 51,000 price cut to flaunt the attractive INR 2.99 lakh ex-showroom price tag for the country.
On the other hand, those who are in need of a full-faired racer can consider the Benelli 302R for INR 3.10 lakh, counting the same as a result of direct price drop worth INR 60,000. Benelli explains that the drop in manufacturing costs helped them reduce the pricing with such a huge amount.
The move is surprising to many as a number of brands have claimed an increased cost of production twice in 2019. The first price hike for most of the brands came in January while the second was witnessed around April this year.
Benelli relies on TNT 300 and 302R for volume generation as other bikes from their side are priced much higher than these two options. The unique part for 300cc Benelli motorcycles is the use of dual front disc brakes, offered mostly in bikes with higher capacity and price segment. The Benelli product range in India now starts from TNT 300 while the most expensive option that one can consider is the TNT 600i for sure.
Here is what Vikas Jhabakh, Managing Director, Benelli India, has to say about the price revision: “We strongly believe in the value proposition of our products and customer sentiments towards the brand Benelli. We have witnessed a significant reduction in the manufacturing cost of the TNT 300 and 302R models and this has helped us to pass on the benefit to the biking enthusiasts in India.”
