In­com­ing: Benelli Tor­nado 302

Bike India - - IGNITION -

LAST YEAR WE WERE THE FIRST TO RIDE THE BENELLI TOR­NADO 302. IT WAS fea­tured as the cover story of our an­niver­sary is­sue. Back then, we were the first to tell you that the com­pany would be launch­ing this bike soon. How­ever, af­ter a de­lay of al­most a year, Benelli are all set to launch the bike very soon. Benelli spent the last year fine-tun­ing the bike be­fore mak­ing it avail­able to the peo­ple and now the bike is ready for its pub­lic début.

The Tor­nado 302 will be the first Benelli in the coun­try to have a full fair­ing, mak­ing it quite an at­trac­tive propo­si­tion for the young­sters. The Tor­nado 302 will fea­ture the same 300-cc par­al­lel-twin mo­tor that pow­ers the naked TnT 300. The bike we rode was ca­pa­ble of 36 PS and 27 Nm; how­ever, the new one might fea­ture a slightly higher out­put. This en­gine will be mated to a six-speed gear­box. The Tor­nado 302 will also fea­ture a new frame, rear sus­pen­sion, and tyres, too.

The bike will go on sale very soon and it will be priced around Rs 3 lakh, which will make it a highly tempt­ing propo­si­tion in its seg­ment.
