Benelli 302S To Launch In India This Year: Will Replace The TNT 300
Rumor has it that Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Benelli, will launch the all new 302S in India. The new motorcycle is said to be a replacement for the TNT 300. When asked over their official Instagram handle, the company’s global Instagram handle said they would launch the Benelli 302S ‘soon’.
The upcoming Benelli 302S feature cosmetic upgrades over the company’s TNT 300 model. The 302S features an all-new full-LED headlamp assembly, and a fully digital instrument cluster.
Benelli’s TNT 300 model features a halogen headlamp assembly, and semi-digital instrument cluster. The 302S will also feature a larger radiator shroud as compare to the TNT 300.
Outside of these minor upgrades, the 302S retains the TNT 300’s fuel tank, engine cowl, split seats, and rear panels. The new motorcycle also features the same trellis frame that is seen on the TNT 300.
The Benelli 302S will feature a non-adjustable 41mm inverted telescopic forks at the front, and a pre-load & rebound adjustable asymmetrical mono-shock at the rear.
Braking duties will be handled by 260mm dual-disc brakes that feature four-piston calipers at the front, and a single 240mm disc that features a two-piston calipers at the rear.
The 302S will be powered by a 300cc BS6 compliant, parallel-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled four-value DOHC engine that produces 37.5bhp of power and 25.62Nm of torque.
The engine will come mated to a six-speed gearbox, and is expected to feature a slipper-assist clutch and ABS as standard. The Benelli 302S is expected to be priced at roughly Rs 3.25 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
