As per the recently discovered images, the Benelli BN 125 features the designing traits of its elder siblings – the TNT 300 and the TNT 600i. In addition to this, the overall white shade with red detailing further adds onto its streetfighter style. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with a sharper body design with accentuating accents on the body panels in addition to a fully-digital instrument console.

The motorcycle features an LED headlight set up while the rear has been equipped with a sharper LED tail light flowing towards the back. The sportier exhaust system further adds onto the Italian motorcycle’s premium appeal.

Powering the motorcycle will be a 125cc air-cooled engine that is capable of generating maximum power of 11.1HP and a peak torque of 10Nm. The engine will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle gets a 110mm tyre at the front while the rear tyre measures 130mm.

Once launched in India, the Benelli BN 125 will compete in the market with the likes of KTM Duke 125. Though the power and torque figures are far different when comparing the two, the engine displacement of both the motorcycles remains the same.

Benelli is an Italian moniker that was revived by the Chinese Qianjiang Group. However, the headquarters are still located in Pesaro, Italy. The Indian arm has seen numerous ups and downs with different partners, resulting in a distorted brand image and a feeling of distrust among the existing owners. In the recent times, the things have improved as Mahavir Group has started establishing its footprint in all parts of India, and now the brand is once again capable enough to rival KTM, Kawasaki and other superbike brands in the country.

Benelli TNT 600i

The 300cc Benelli bikes are good for everyday riding, with an impressive exhaust note to keep the spirits high at all times while the TRK adventure motorcycle series was launched in India in February 2018 for those who need access to the less-travelled roads.

Benelli recently also launched the much-awaited Leoncino 250, Leoncino 500, and the Imperiale 400 at an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2.50 lakh, INR 4.79 lakh, and INR 1.69 lakh respectively. Here is the 2020 price list of the Benelli bikes you can buy in India.

When your passion doesn’t allow you to settle for less, creations like this typical Benelli TNT 300 with a Ducati outfit is a sure shot result. The modification has been done in Vietnam and the body parts of the TNT 300 streetfighter have been swapped with the actual Ducati 899 Panigale parts, keeping the underpinnings truly Benelli with the same frame and suspension components.

Even the LED headlamps have been sourced from the original model, making this motorcycle look actually the same as the original Ducati 899 Panigale superbike. This replica looks so close to the actual model that a lot of bike enthusiasts would not be able to figure out that it’s not an original Ducati.

The performance has not been altered for the Benelli engine and it is still good for 38.26BHP of maximum power. In comparison, the 899 Panigale generates 146BHP of max power. The smaller disc brakes of this modified TNT 300 do give a hint that it’s not an actual model of the Ducati 899 Panigale but it’s undoubtedly the closest-possible replica of the original sportbike.

The aftermarket SC-Project exhaust system must be able to make it sound better but won’t help it achieve the huge gap between the power values of the original Ducati 899 Panigale superbike and the Benelli TNT 300 streetfighter.

Benelli TNT 300 is a naked streetfighter, providing a lot of options for customisation in terms of fairing attachments than other machines which are sold with factory fairings. The owner’s dream of owning a Ducati Panigale superbike could have never been better lived than this one.

Earlier this year, Benelli dropped the ex-showroom price tag of the TNT 300 to INR 2.99 lakh in India. The motorcycle comes with 2-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard. It is being expected that the brand will replace the TNT 300 with the 302S in the coming months.

The biggest scrambler from the Italian brand, the Benelli Leoncino 800 has been officially unveiled at the EICMA 2019. The motorcycle carries the same authentic traits shown by the other motorcycles under the Benelli’s portfolio which includes a retro-modern design, sculpted body panel and the ‘Lion of Pesaro’ motif at the front fender.

Coming to the major updates, in comparison to the concept model’s petal disc brakes, the production-spec Benelli Leoncino 800 now features conventional disc brakes at either end. In addition to this, the motorcycle now gets repositioned pillion footrest that further improves the ergonomics.

The motorcycle features 17-inch spoke wheels at either end with 120/70-17 and 180/55-17 tyres. In addition to this, the motorcycle now features an LED headlight setup plus it also gets an all-new TFT instrument console.

The Leoncino 800’s production variant features the same lozenge-shaped headlight mated to a small windscreen, as seen on the concept version. The front fender has been further equipped with the brand’s Lion mascot, similar to the one on the concept model.

Coming to the other mechanical changes, the motorcycle now features 50mm Marzocchi MTB forks at the front while the rear has been equipped with an adjustable monoshock absorber. The Leoncino 800 is equipped with 320mm dual front discs and a 260mm single rear disc.

To keep the cost under check, the brand has now equipped the motorcycle with Benelli’s in-house radial callipers, assisted by BOSCH ABS that have replaced the Brembo callipers shown on the concept version. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with tubeless tyres at either end.

Powering the Benelli Leoncino 800 is the same 754cc parallel-twin engine that does duty on the Benelli 752S. The engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 81.6HP with maximum torque of 67Nm while the top speed is expected to stay at around 190kmph. The kerb weight of the motorcycle stands at 223kgs, making it one of the heaviest bikes in the brand’s portfolio.

The brand is likely to launch the Benelli Leoncino 800 in the Indian market though, there has been no official confirmation as of yet. The pricing and availability details of the motorcycle will be revealed by the brand in the coming days.

The much-awaited 2020 Benelli TNT600 has been officially revealed by the brand ahead of the EICMA 2019. The production variant of the most-anticipated motorcycle is nothing like the earlier leaked prototypes. The brand has only offered some minor updates to the sports machine when compared to its existing variant while major comprehensive changes have been given a miss.

Taking a little design inspiration from the leaked prototypes, the brand has finally equipped the motorcycle with an LED headlamp in addition to offering an LCD instrument console. The brand has further equipped the 2020 model of the Benelli TNT600 with a split seat setup which has replaced the single-seat setup spotted in the leaked prototypes.

The headlamp cluster is now exposed while the addition of new tank extensions adds to its exclusivity. The white and black colour scheme offered to the sports motorcycle is now different from the yellow prototype though, it is worth grabbing attention on the road. In addition to the displayed colour variant, the brand will also be offering the all-new Benelli motorcycle in green colour.

Powering the 2020 Benelli TNT600 is the same 600cc, inline 4-cylinder, DOHC engine that is capable of generating a maximum power figure of 81.6HP @ 11,500 rpm and a peak torque of 51Nm @ 10,500 rpm. The motorcycle has been equipped with a BS6-compliant engine to cater the new emission norms to be implemented in the country before April 1, 2020, thus the slight decrease in power and torque output is justifiable when compared to the output offered by the current-gen variant.

The motorcycle features 50mm inverted forks at the front while the rear has been equipped with a monoshock unit. The kerb weight of the motorcycle has increased by 3kgs and now stands at 234kg. One can expect the brand to officially launch the 2020 Benelli TNT600 in the Indian market soon while the price tag will be revealed at the time of the launch itself.

According to a recent report, the all-new Benelli 302S streetfighter is expected to launch in India by early 2020. The news has been confirmed by Benelli’s Global Instagram handle where the officials confirmed the launch of the motorcycle as a reply to a fan asking for details. The Benelli 302S will be replacing the outdated TNT 300 in most markets including India.

The launch is expected to take place in the early months of 2020 as the brand would be able to sell the existing stock of the TNT 300 by that time. The 302S is the same machine as the TNT 300, getting some important updates in the form of a BS6-compliant engine, unique styling, new feature list, and attractive colour options. The model also features an all-new digital instrument console for effective rivalry.

The blue backlit console is available with a clock on the top left corner and all remaining values are seen within the semi-circular tachometer. The rectangular screen in enclosed in a uniquely shaped console while standard bar-type handlebar on the 302S remains the same as the India-spec Benelli TNT 300.

The front end of the motorcycle comes with a sharp headlight design, enclosing a projector and LED light in a very impressive pattern. The model retains the dual front disc brakes with 260mm diameter and petal-type design. On the other hand, the rear disc measures 240mm. Both the ends are secured with dual-channel ABS.

Benelli 302S is using the same 300cc, twin-cylinder engine, producing approx 38HP of power and 25.6Nm of torque. However, the values have been tuned slightly according to the fuel conditions of different countries. The output for India is expected to stay the same as the current-gen 302R.

The motorcycle is available in China in various colour options but the most attractive one seems to be the Neon Green shade with matching alloy wheels. The seat height for the model remains feasible at 795mm while the ground clearance may feel limited at just 140mm (unladen). The Benelli 302S is expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 3.20 lakh in the Indian market.

How many we will bring to India will be based on the market feedback for different products.”

Benelli 502C cruiser motorcycle was one among many potential products at the 2018 Thai Motor Expo, showing a huge amount of potential for the Indian market at that time. A recent report from Financial Express confirms the launch of the 502C cruiser in India by early 2020. In terms of the design, the styling is shared with the Benelli 402 cruiser that was first seen at the EICMA 2017.

The overall design lines are inspired from the Ducati xDiavel while power comes from a familiar 500cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine, producing 47.5HP @ 8500 rpm of maximum power and a maximum torque of 46Nm @ 6000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Benelli claims a top speed of 160kph for the cruiser.

The niche performance brand is planning to enter the middleweight cruiser segment through the twin-cylinder product. The front end of the Benelli 502C comes with an impressive LED headlight, looking flat from the side and matching with the gloss-finished black visible frame of the motorcycle. The USD forks are shared with other Benelli products while short yet sharp fender looks amazing on its profile.

The front comes with dual disc brakes with ABS while the rear shows a unique exhaust design on the 502C. The majority of bulk is situated around the fuel tank as the rear end comes with shorter-than-ever tail section and an independent tire hugger. The seat seems practical for a single rider only while the overall stance is worth-praising for sure. The Benelli 502C has a fuel tank capacity of 21 litres, and the kerb weight stands at 217kg.

The forward set foot-pegs guarantee a good level of comfort for the rider on the highway. Benelli will use an all-digital console with LED lights for different indications. The handlebar stays casual and offers an impressive sitting position.

Once launched in India, the Benelli 502C will compete in the market with the likes of Kawasaki Vulcan S and Harley-Davidson Street 750. The cruiser will be brought to the country via the CKD route while one can expect the brand to offer a price tag of under INR 5 lakh for the upcoming 500cc twin-cylinder motorcycle.
