Benelli TNT 300 ABS now costs Rs 2.99 lakh ex-showroom and TNT 302R is priced at Rs 3.1 lakh ex-showroom
The Italian brand Benelli has reduced the prices of their entry-level motorcycles by up to Rs 60,000. Benelli TNT 300 now cost Rs 2.99 lakh ex-showroom after a price cut of Rs 51,000. Previously, TNT 300 was priced at Rs 3.5 lakh ex-showroom.
On the other hand, Benelli TNT 302R saw a price cut of Rs 60,000 and it now cost 3.1 lakh ex-showroom. The older price tag of 302R was Rs 3.7 lakh ex-showroom.
All this is made possible due to the local production of bikes in India. Till now Benelli TNT 300 and 302R were imported, hence, they were highly expensive. Now, since the prices are reduced significantly, TNT 300 and 302R will rival the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 300 and BMW G310R.
Managing Director of Benelli India, Vikas Jhabakh said. “We strongly believe in the value proposition of our products and customer sentiments towards the brand Benelli. We have witnessed a significant reduction in the manufacturing cost of the TNT 300 and 302R models and this has helped us to pass on the benefit to the biking enthusiasts in India.”
Benelli has setup its manufacturing plant near Hyderabad in strategic partnership with Adishwar Auto Ride India (AARI) which is a part of Mahavir Group. Initially, Benelli came in India with DSK Group and it didn’t go well in the Indian market. For that time, Benelli had to stop the sales of its Bikes.
Benelli again came to India by tieing up with Mahavir Group. This time the Italian bike makers has vast plans for India as they will launch Imperiale 400 this year. Benelli eys on to open more dealerships to expand its reach in the country for good.
Recently we saw a slight hike in the price of Benelli TRk 502 and 502X adventure motorcycles. The price hike was Rs 10,000 on both the bikes. Now the price of TRK 502 is Rs 5.1 lakh and 502X gets a price tag of Rs 5.5 lakh. Both the prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
