    Kerb Weight please ??

    • Weight has not been revealed. Considering that TNT 302 has wet weight (all fluids except fuel) of 185 kg, this will tip the scale at about 190-195 kgs.

        It is expected to be in the range which you mentioned only. Kerb weight is expected to be slightly more than 200kgs and that should bring the kerb weight very close to that of 650cc Er-6n. Nonetheless it seems to be an exciting motorcycle – a TNT300 with wind protection 🙂
