TNT 300 ABS in the country priced at Rs 3.29 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India). The new ABS equipped Benelli TNT 300 is about ? 26,000 more expensive than the standard version and replaces the non-ABS model in the bike maker's line-up. The TNT 300 joins the TNT 600i and the recently launched 302R in Benelli's stable to get ABS as standard. The entry-level TNT 25 misses out on ABS alone, but we do expect the model to get an update in sometime.
The Benellit TNT 300 ABS gets no changes apart from the inclusion of the safety feature. It is a dual-channel unit that can be switched off, should you want to get a little adventurous. We told you that order books for the TNT 300 ABS are already open, while deliveries are said to begin in the next two weeks. Power output on the Benelli TNT 300 ABS remains the same from the 300 cc in-line, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to churn out 37 bhp at 11,500 rpm and 26.5 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm. The street-fighter comes with a 6-speed gearbox, while the suspension setup includes USD forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear. Braking performance comes from the dual petal discs at the front and a single disc brake at the rear. The Benelli TNT 300 ABS rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with Metzeler tyres.
The Benelli TNT 300's ergonomics are quite friendly.t's not overly aggressive, and the flat wide handlebar and comfortable seat makes it a friendly bike to ride - whether in city traffic or on the highway. The rear set footpegs take a moment to get used to, but they are not placed awkwardly like the KTM Duke 390's. So overall, a friendly and comfortable riding position; not too aggressive like its competition and quite comfortable, even to take on touring duties. The TNT 300 is powered by a four-stroke, parallel twin, liquid-cooled, 300cc engine, which makes 38bhp power at 11,500rpm and 26.5Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm. The power is transmitted to the rear wheel by a six-speed constant mesh transmission.
