Well, who is not familiar with the upcoming two-wheeler manufacturer, DSK-Benelli. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer has collaborated with Pune based DSK Motowheels and will soon be introducing its wide range of products over the Indian roads. The Italian firm has made its appearance in the country in the last year, 2014 and will soon get officially launched in the coming month, February. It seems that the DSK-Benelli has planned to wrap up its motorcycles as a Valentine gift for the two-wheeler enthusiasts. The launching date would be falling in the third week of February, 2015.
The DSK-Benelli has showcased five of its motorcycles ranging from 300cc and goes up to 1130cc. The smallest sports motorcycle carries a 300cc engine and named as Benelli TNT 300. And, the segment ruler is the company's flagship sports motorcycle, i.e. Benelli TNT 1130. The TNT 300 is powered by a parallel-twin, fuel-injected engine. The 300cc displaced engine is tuned to belt out a maximum power of 37PS and a peak torque of 27.1 Nm. The TNT 300 is a street-fighter sports motorcycle, which will be competing with upcoming Honda CBR 300R and 2015 Yamaha R25.
The DSK-Benelli motorcycles will be entering into the country via CKD route. The delay of the official launching for the DSK-Benelli motorcycles in India is due to some homologation issues. The remaining three models include TNT 600i, TNT 600 GT and TNT 899. The DSK-Benelli products are known with a suffix BN in the international market, but the motorcycles under Indian product portfolio are christened carrying a suffix TNT. Currently, the firm is working to open its exclusive showroom all across the country.
