The Benelli TNT 600GT is a middleweight sports touring motorcycle, which is based on the naked TNT 600i. It is a part of Benelli’s initial range which was launched in March 2015, and is aimed at touring enthusiasts.
The TNT 600GT provides a comfortable riding position, which makes it ideal for daily commuting as well as long rides. The Benelli TNT 600GT is powered by a 600cc inline four engine which churns out a respectable 80bhp and 55Nm of torque, through a six-speed gearbox.
The massive 27-litre fuel tank and the aerodynamic fairing along with a host of other features give the motorcycle great touring abilities, making the TNT 600GT one of the best middleweight touring motorcycles in India. It is built around a steel trestle chassis with aluminium alloy casting in the rear. Suspension is made of 50mm upside-down fork at the front and a monoshock in the rear. Stopping power is provided by 320mm twin discs at front and a 260mm single disc at the rear.
The Benelli TNT 600GT is locally assembled at DSK Motowheels’ factory in Wai, Maharashtra, which has helped the Italian manufacturer price the motorcycle very competitively in the Indian market. The TNT 600GT rivals the only other middleweight touring motorcycle in India - the Kawasaki Ninja 650.
