- Benelli 600RR supersport spotted
- Based on the TNT 600i naked street bike
- Likely to be launched in India after its global debut
After the Benelli 600RR fully-faired motorcycle's recent appearance in a leaked patent image, the bike has now been spotted in the open. The fact that it looks production-ready indicates that Benelli might officially unveil the bike sooner rather than later.
While we already know that it will be based on the TNT 600i naked bike in terms of hardware, the most noticeable aspect about the 600RR is its design. It sports a sharp front end with a dual LED headlamp along with a centre air intake which could be a cosmetic element. The large fairing is accompanied by a muscular fuel tank which ends into a sleek tail section. The rear end is identical to the recently-spotted next-generation TNT 600i. Moreover, reports also suggest that the new TNT 600i and 600RR will be equipped with fancy gadgetry comprising of keyless ignition, backlit controls and a full-colour TFT instrument cluster.
The chassis, swingarm, suspension and braking hardware of the 600RR is borrowed from the middle-weight street bike. It is also powered by the same 600cc, in-line four cylinder motor which does duty on its naked sibling. However, the engine might be tuned differently to suit the RR’s sporty character. Leaked documents have revealed that the supersport weighs 215kgs and features Brembo brakes with Bosch 9.1MB ABS.
As we have told you before, the Benelli 600RR was scheduled to be unveiled around June but the disruptions due to the Coronavirus pandemic has pushed it ahead. Following its global debut, we also expect the motorcycle to come to India. It will compete against the Honda CBR650R and Kawasaki Ninja 650.
