The Benelli 302S is the model that will replace the TNT 300. As such, it retains a lot of the elements of the TNT300. It has a steel trestle frame, and a 300cc parallel-twin motor that generates 37bhp and 26Nm. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard – but there’s no word yet on whether a slipper clutch will be standard. Braking is courtesy of twin 260mm petal discs in the front and a single 240mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS will be standard. Inverted front forks and a preload-adjustable rear monoshock make up the suspension. The fuel tank has a capacity of 16 litres, which is quite large for this spec of motorcycle.
The Benelli 302S will compete with the Kawasaki Z250 and KTM 390 Duke, and its price will range between the two, but closer to the Kawasaki.
