One of the historic Italian motorcycle manufacturers, Benelli, has launched Benelli Tornado 302. The fully-faired motorcycle is inspired by the Tornado 1130, which was released prior than a decade ago. Talking about this new launch at the ongoing EICMA 2015, Tornado 302 is the faired twin to the TNT300 and would be a good choice for teenagers and the stepped in 20ers. Looks pretty from its first images, the Tornado 302 is painted white with bits of red color around the body dignifying the beauty at its peak.
Featuring the mechanical dimensions, the Tornado 302 is powered by a 300cc, liquid cooled 4 stroke, 4 valve DOHC inline-2 engine that generates maximum power of 35HP at 12000 RPM and a peak torque of 27 NM at 9000 RPM, mated to a 6 speed transmission gearbox. Suspension duties are performed by 41mm upside down forks up front, and a lateral monoshock at the rear, adjustable for preload. Braking is provided by 260mm front discs with 4 piston calipers, while the rear gets 240mm with 1 floating piston caliper.
As per the visuals, the body graphics make an aesthetic appeal as well. The machine is wrapped up in all white finery with sprinkles of red here and there. The headlamp is quite large, but looks bold and aggressive as a fine piece of Italian machinery. The below-belly is equipped with a single aluminum exhaust pipe with twin ports. The sportsbike measures 2175 mm in length, 746 mm in width and 1146 mm in height. Though there is no official news for its reach in India, but it will be appreciated for sure when the bike is launched here.
