DSK Motowheels, one of the most established and strongest players in the superbike segment, in association with the legendary Italian superbike brand, Benelli, has launched the TNT 600i with switchable ABS. Already a hot favorite amongst superbike enthusiasts, this new safety feature is sure to offer hardcore riders the ultimate thrilling experience that the DSK Benelli TNT 600i is known for.
It has displayed the ABS updated models – TNT 600i, along with its sibling with touring applications – TNT 600GT, at the Auto Expo earlier this year. The naked-street performance motorcycle, which is powered by four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 85bhp, 600cc engine and is currently assembled at company’s upcoming Talegaon facility (near Pune), is one of the best-selling Benelli models besides TNT 25 and TNT 300.
The company has started accepting bookings for the new ABS updated model, which will retail at Rs 573,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The model will be available across all 16 showrooms including Pune, Mumbai, Thane, Goa, Delhi, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and other cities.
DSK Benelli, a prominent player with most offerings in the mid-sized motorcycle segment (including DSK Hyosung – all under Pune-based DSK Motowheels), has now rolled out an ABS-equipped Benelli TNT 600i. According to the company, it has sold more than 700 units of the DSK Benelli TNT 600i since it was commercially launched in March 2015 (at Rs 5.15 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi).
The DSK Benelli TNT 600i competes with other naked bikes like the Kawasaki ER-6n and Triumph Street Triple. It has an excellent performance and ride quality, but the brakes left more to be desired. The TNT 600i with ABS is available at all 16 DSK Benelli showrooms across the country.
