Benelli Tornado 302 – 2016 Auto Expo


4th Feb, Delhi: To be launched in India later this year.

The Benelli Tornado 302 is essentially a fully faired version of the TNT 300. Held together by a steel trellis frame, the KTM RC390 rival features an ultra sporty fairing with sophisticated twin headlamps. A muscular fuel tank and a long tailpiece with split seats renders the compact displacement sportsbike a litre-class appeal.

Power comes from the TNT 300’s 300 cc parallel-twin liquid cooled engine but its outputs are jacked up to 35 PS at 12,000 rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. Transmission is a 6-speed unit. Suspension and braking system come from the naked sibling.
