BS6 Benelli TNT 600 has been spotted in China with a completely new design. The 2020 variant is expected to launch at the EICMA in November 2019, taking India into consideration once the BS6 norms head close in April 2020.
The model may look completely different due to altered design lines but keen eyes will notice that the frame underpinning the motorcycle is similar to the one seen on India-spec TNT 600i. The new colour schemes will definitely suit the character of this motorcycle as panels are sharper than ever on both the front and rear end of the same. The model spotted here is seen in a yellow livery.
The 2020 Benelli TNT 600 looks production-ready and comes with a different fuel tank that offers new extensions and dual-tone finish. The front comes with USD forks that are finished in silver on the outside while disc brakes are still huge enough to cover almost the entire surface area of the alloy wheel.
The tire size will remain similar to the current-gen model for sure. The seat has been switched from a split-type to single one, that too with the later looking comfortable for the pillion due to additional padding. The headlight carries a futuristic expression with its impressive design.
The exhaust design of the current-gen Benelli TNT 600 is remarkable as the motorcycle looks much bigger than its actual displacement with this typical design feature. However, the exhaust design on the 2020 model has been swapped with a regular exhaust inspired by the 752S. The instrument console of the 2020 TNT 600i is an advanced LCD display with coloured graphics over the black surface.
The 600cc, four-cylinder engine on the motorcycle is good for 86 HP of power and 54.6 Nm of torque while the BS6 upgrade may bring a different output value. The updated model is expected to get a price tag of around INR 6.50 lakh (ex-showroom).
