The Benelli 302R has launched in India for Rs. 3.48 lakhs ( Ex-showroom, pan India) . The 302R, also known as the Tornedo 302, is the Italian manufacturer's first full faired offering globally in ages, and the first ever in India. The bikes shares its underpinnings with the Benelli TNT 300 but gets a slew of changes and the exterior looks nothing like the naked offering.
The bike is distinctly different from the TNT 300 and gets an all-new Trellis frame that makes for 50:50 weight. There's an all-new double sided swingarm and the foot pegs have been re-positioned for a more aggressive riding position. The bike comes with new LED taillights with clear lens indicators and the bike completes the sporty look with a side mounted exhaust.
Power on the Benelli 302R continues to come from the BS-IV compliant 300 cc parallel-twin, liquid cooled engine borrowed from the TNT 300. The motor churns out 38 bhp power and 27.4 Nm of peak torque on the TNT, and is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The Benelli 302R has been assisted with twin 260mm disc brakes up front along with a single 240mm disc unit at the rear. Both further come linked to an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as standard. The suspension system comprises of inverted forks at the front along with a monoshock at the rear. Available at 25 dealerships across India, the 302R comes in three colour options: Red-Black, Green-White and Red-White.
