Benelli 302R Sports Bike Price Dropped in India: Mahavir Group has officially announced a price cut for its 300cc sports bike, the Benelli 302R. The motorcycle has received a massive price cut of INR 60,000. The twin-cylinder sportbike was relaunched in India in December 2018 with a price tag of INR 3.70 lakh.
After the official price cut, the Benelli 302R is now available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 3.10 lakh. The brand has announced that the price has been dropped as an outcome of the reduction in the manufacturing costs of the Benelli motorcycles in India. The 302R competes with the likes of other twin-cylinder full-faired sport bikes in India like the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Yamaha YZF-R3.
The Benelli 302R is powered by a 300cc twin-cylinder engine, which is good for 38.26 BHP of maximum power at 11,500 rpm and 26.5 Nm of maximum torque at 10,000 rpm. The engine is mated a 6-speed gearbox, and the sports bike claims an approximate top speed of 170 kmph.
According to Vikas Jhabakh, Managing Director, Benelli India: “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 302R and this has helped us to pass on the benefit to the biking enthusiasts in India.”
