Eight new DSK-Benelli motorcycles en-route India
DSK-Benelli marked its entry into the Indian premium motorcycle market, with the launch of 5 new motorcycles. The range in India currently includes the TNT 300, TNT 600 i, TNT 600 GT, TNT 899 and the TNT R (1130). At India Bike Week 2015 (Report & Pics: India Bike Week 2015 @ Goa), the brand also showcased the Blackster 250, TNT 25 and the Trek 1130 Amazonas. While the TNT 25 and Amazonas have been confirmed for a launch, the Blackster is still under consideration. It now looks like these three motorcycles will be joined by five others and we can expect a total of eight new Benellis in India by the end of 2016.
According to the report by Autocar India, two out of the five yet-to-be-revealed motorcycles for 2016, will be variations of the TNT 300. While one derivation will be a fully faired model, the other will be half faired variant. The fully faired version is expected to feature more aggressive ergonomics, while the half faired version may be set up for better touring comfort. All three versions of the TNT 300 will be mechanically identical.
Also on the books is a new twin-cylinder, 500cc mill powered adventure bike that will slide in below the 600 GT. Benelli is also reportedly working on a new 750cc engine that will power a naked bike as well as a fully faired motorcycle. Details on these motorcycles are limited as of now as Benelli is running through the final development phase.
The five new motorcycles are expected to be revealed at EICMA 2015, while the Indian market launches of the Amazonas, TNT 25 and maybe even the Blackster 250, will take place this year
