    Benelli TNT 300 is what? 183Kgs?? Unbelievable. It is too heavy for its class. And oh, the price too. It looks as though the price is more because of the extra metal they have to use. I dont know what they did to make it that heavy. Ducati Monster 795 is 187Kgs(wet) for gods sakes!!

  • Srihari says:

    On seeing this prices i remember public issues of a company.
    Price band for TNT 300 3.10 lakh to 3.50 lakh!!
    In public issue companies before fixing final price they will issue drafted prospectus with out exact prices but with price band i.e. lower price and higher price. Investors will bid what ever price they like between the band. based on the investors trust on the project they will finalise the price..
    So i think based on the bookings they will finalise the price!!

    LOL!!
    Just for fun!!

    There is a reason why we don’t see a ninja 300 and tons of ktm 390s on road. You’re bike may be cutting edge but still over priced I believe 2.5 lakh on road will make it a KTM eater if I have to pay 3 lakh re is giving a cafe racer for 2.5 and its a 535cc, think hard benelli

  • Dinesh Mallavalli says:

    Benelli. You’re producing in India for India and still the 300 is way over priced
    The 600i is aptly priced and 1199 and 899 are in acceptable range the gt is a bit over shot too
    Kwakcy managed to get the ninja 650 at 5 ish range in cbu route you should be at a lower price than that
    If you don’t find a way to cut the price on 300 you can forget the sale target

    ABS provision should be officially declared(afterwards in upgrades it should be available for those who are buying now as Non ABS)
