Indian motorcyclist Anirban Banerjee set out on a journey to visit Asia’s highest motorable village, Komic. His motorcycle of choice? DSK-Benelli India’s entry level roadster, the TNT 300. Anirban began his 10-day and 1,600 km long journey from Delhi on 16th August 2015. The journey took him through beautiful scenic locations covering Karnal, Ambala Shimla, Kaza, Manali and Kullu.
Komic is the highest inhabited village in Asia, situated at 5150 meters from sea level, in the Spiti Valley. The village has only 12 houses and a population of 150 people including the monks. The village remains cut from civilization for five-six months in a year due to snow and no roads.
Speaking on his ride, Banerjee said, “I had one of the most thrilling experiences of my life in the past 10 days where I rode from Delhi to the beautiful village in Spiti. The goal behind this ride was to explore the uncharted territories of our beautiful country. Of course, this odyssey would have been impossible without my faithful companion, the DSK Benelli TNT 300. It held up its reputation for being one of the most reliable and refined superbikes in the world.”
DSK Motowheels is assembling and selling Benelli bikes across India and supporting them with an immaculate backup of service and spares. The Benelli TNT 300 is currently the entry level product from the Italian marque and is equipped with a 300cc liquid cooled inline two cylinder motor that delivers 37PS of power and 27Nm of torque.
