The Benelli TNT 25 gets all the quintessential streetfighter styling cues like sculpted bodywork, a muscular fuel tank, exposed trestle frame and a vertically stacked headlamp. The instrument cluster gets an analogue tachometer, but the rest of the information is displayed digitally.
The TNT 25 is the only single-cylinder Benelli model sold in India. It is powered by a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine which delivers 28bhp and 22Nm of torque through a six-speed transmission. It is underpinned by a steel tubular trestle frame, with the engine as a stressed member. The brakes consist of a 280mm petal disc with a two-piston calliper at the front, and a 240mm disc with a single-piston calliper at the rear.
The Benelli TNT 25 is available in two paint schemes – rosso (red) and bianco (white). Benelli is also offering a host of optional accessories, like rearset footpegs, adjustable levers, crash bobbins, fork protectors and bar ends among others. Customers can opt for standard MRF tyres or stickier Metzeler tyres according to their preference, the latter of which cost Rs 7,000 more. The Benelli TNT 25 is priced at Rs 1.84 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
