Benelli might launch the redesigned TNT 600i in India next year
According to sources, Benelli might launch the redesigned TNT 600i in India next year, making it the fourth all-new product from the company after the TRK twins and the Leoncino. The new model is expected to command a premium of around Rs 50,000 over the current model, which retails at Rs 6.2 lakh (ex-showroom). The Italian bike maker is expected to unveil the next-gen motorcycle in the international market by the end of this year at the 2019 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy.
Till now, two sets of images of the bike have been leaked online. The new TNT 600i will sport an all-new design language, which could be used as a reference for future Benellis as well. The currently leaked images show that the motorcycle was equipped with a split-seat setup and a new side-by-side headlamp, which looks like a modern and bolder version of its bigger cousins such as the TNT 899 and TNT 1130.
In mechanicals term, the only major mechanical updated that the motorcycle will receive is in the form of a BS6-compliant engine, which explains why the exhaust has been repositioned to the side of the motorcycle. In the current model, this 600cc inline four-cylinder motor pumps out 86.24PS at 11,500rpm and 54.6Nm of peak torque at 10,500rpm. Also, it might still make the same howling noise as the current model.
