Benelli has launched the 302R in India for a price starting from Rs. 3.48 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). We saw the bike at last year’s Delhi Auto Expo and it looked really good in person. Its design, though not as sharp, is different from other bikes in its segment and is sure to stand out. The Italian factor is also likely to get favorable points among people looking in the segment.

Benelli 302R official video
Official video of the Benelli 302R has been released. The bike competes with the likes of Yamaha YZF-R3 and Ninja 300 in India.
The new video lists out some of the specifications of the bike along with some wheelie and cornering action. Its beautiful exhaust note can be heard as well, which is something most Benellli bikes are known for.
Benelli 302R Design
The Benelli 302R gets a twin headlamp set-up at the front but instead of spreading out, like in most bike in the segment, they are both centrally placed. Its windscreen is long and wide, and should provide adequate protection.
At the sides, what was once the TNT300 is now immaculately concealed under the faring. The tail area is sharp and its new twin port exhaust not only looks better but also sounds better too.
