New Benelli TNT 600 spy shots are out, India launch in 2020
Next-gen Benelli TNT 600 images are out now. These new studio shots are a lot different than what spied earlier. However, it is said that the company might finalize this design as it features the radical dual LED headlight unit which resembles bigger TNT 899 and TNT 1130 bikes in the company’s lineup. New twin-eye headlight design will give the bike a distinct look from the Benelli family.
When we speak about the other design elements, the fuel tank also has a more angular design than what was spied earlier. This time around, TNT 600 gets split seats instead of a single piece unit found in the older shots. Moreover, the turn indicators are mounted on the fuel-tank extension in the new design.
Powering the current-gen Benelli TNT 600i is a liquid-cooled, 600cc inline-4 engine. This powerplant churns out 84bhp at 11,500rpm and 54.6Nm twisting force at 10,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Benelli TNT 600 tips the scale at 230 kg which is on the heavier side. However, the bike is quick enough to hit 100 kmph in 4 seconds and has a top speed of around 220 kmph.

Everything is held together by a trellis frame which also delivers good cornering stability. Suspension duties are performed by USD forks upfront and a single monoshock at the rear. The bike can be brought to halt with the help of twin 320 mm discs at the front end with 4-piston radial calipers. The rear one, on the other hand, is a 260 mm unit with 2-piston caliper.
One can wait till EICMA kicks in Milan from 5th November 2019 where Benelli can showcase their new TNT 600. At present, the Benelli TNT 600i is priced at Rs 6 lakh ex-showroom. If the company turns towards India, we can expect a little price hike in the year 2020.
