The upcoming Benelli 302R was spotted testing for the first time in India, at Pune. It is the fully faired version of Benelli’s TNT300 which is currently available in Indian market. The bike was showcased at this year’s Auto Expo.
Powering the 302R is a 300cc parallel twin cylinder, liquid cooled engine producing 34 hp and 27 Nm of torque. It will be mated to a 6-speed transmission.
Even with lesser power, this Italian should be priced very close to the Yamaha R3 at 3.15 lakh to Rs. 3.20 lakh (ex-showroom). ABS will be provided, as stricter emission norms will be in place from next year.
