Benelli TNT 25
DSK Benelli’s most economical offering in the country, TNT 25 is going to be a tough competitor for all the street fighter’s around. The decent looking bike looks a bit like the KTM 200 Duke but has a lot more to be offered than that. After a long wait, Benelli has finally launched the TNT 250 in India for INR 1.68 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune) for the model with MRF tyres and INR 1.75 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune) for the model with Metzeler tyres. Benelli TNT 25 is available in 2 shades – White and Red.
Design and Style
With a very basic and common design it seems sometimes to be lesser on the style part, but the white and red combination of the body with the mono shock and its frame makes it a goal scorer every time. Its decent looking alloy wheels matches its body structure and overall it becomes a noticeable element on the road.
Comfort while Riding
The TNT25 would be a comfortable ride as the seating position is quiet normal and the seat height being the lowest for a naked street bike. 780 mm is a quiet impressive figure even for those who have an average height. The suspension is a nice one which will take over the obstacles of riding and Benelli has given enough braking power for the time of emergency braking. Overall, it would be a smooth riding experience. The 110/70 R17, 54 H (Metzeler) | 110/70 R17, 54 S (MRF) for the front and 150/60 R17, 66 H (Metzeler) | 150/60 R17, 66 S (MRF), for the rear enhances the road grip and brings a smooth ride every time.
The most important positive factor for Benelli TNT 25 is the large fuel tank which has a capacity of 17 litres, making it suitable for longer rides without caring much about the petrol pumps all the time. It would return an expected mileage of 30 kmpl which is a standard 250 cc category mileage.
The TNT 25 was displayed in only White shade at the time of official unveil but after its official launch in India, it is also available in Red shade.
Benelli has launched TNT 25 in India for Rs. 1.68 lakh (ex-showroom Pune) for the standard model with MRF tyres and Rs. 1.75 lakh (ex-showroom Pune) for the premium model with Metzeler tyres. This price tag makes it a strong competitor for the other naked street bikes in the segment like KTM 200 Duke and the upcoming Kawasaki Z250SL.
If the price would have been around 1.5 lakh, the chances of victory would have been doubled. No doubt, it’s a high quality offering for the 250 cc naked category; it has the potential and the craze for international brands in the people which surely ignite its future.
