Benelli has introduced the TNT 899 along with its other range of motorcycles for the Indian market. With the manufacturer's partnership with DSK Group, this bike is being targeted at consumers who are looking for very good performance but at the same time, doesn't want to spend a lot.
The TNT 899 is a sporty looking motorcycle that features trestle steel and aluminum alloy cast frame, Marsocchi forks and Brembo brakes. Another highlight is the incorporation of carbon fibre in most of the elements. This includes the muffler, front and rear fenders, belly pan, chain casing and single-seat tail. The other accessories like dry clutch kit, frame sliders, racing tank filler, motorbike covers and semi-rigid panniers are also available.
The Benelli TNT 899 is powered by an in-line three-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid cooled 898 cc engine with four valves per cylinder double overhead camshaft. This mill churns out a maximum output of 118bhp of peak power at 9500 rpm and 88 Nm of maximum torque at 8000 rpm.
The Benelli TNT 899 is being sold as a completely-knocked-down (CKD) unit and competes with the Kawasaki Z800 and the Triumph Street Triple. It is available in two colour options - Bianco (white) and Nero (black) and both the colours look really nice on it.
