Italian automaker Benelli has launched the 2020 edition of the TNT 600i motorcycle in China. The bike gets a bunch of design and feature updates over the outgoing model. However, mechanically, it remains unchanged.
To recall, the sports tourer had made its global debut at the 2019 EICMA show. It is likely to arrive in India by the end of this year.
The 2020 Benelli TNT 600i comes with an eye-catching look featuring a naked-street design with a muscular fuel tank, an angular-looking headlamp cluster, a stepped-up seat, and dual under-seat exhausts.
Apart from that, the sports tourer houses a fully-digital instrument cluster, blacked-out alloy wheels, and is offered in two dual-tone color options.
Power and performance
Under the hood, the 2020 Benelli TNT 600i is fueled by a 600cc four-cylinder engine that comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This unit is capable of producing 85.07PS of power at 11,500rpm and a 54.6Nm of peak torque at 10,500rpm.
On the road
What about safety and suspension setup?
In the safety department, the new Benelli TNT 600i comes equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS as standard to avoid skidding while braking.
To manage suspension duties, the sports tourer houses inverted telescopic forks on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear.
Finally, what is the pocket-pinch?
As far as pricing is concerned, the 2020 Benelli TNT 600i costs CNY 46,800 (approximately Rs. 5.06 lakh) in China. There is no word on its pricing in India yet. However, going by the reports, the bike is likely be priced around Rs. 6 lakh.
