xBhp was born more than 16 years ago and since then we've had a chance to ride or drive hundreds of machines running on two wheels or four wheels, and sometimes even three wheels. We are not done yet, and this list is still growing. In these pages, we take a deep dive in the treasure trove of our ride experiences and bring you all that we have ridden or driven.

Benelli TNT 600i

600CC 85.07BHP 54.6NM
1st_photo_blog A 600cc inline 4 is often considered an ideal combination of high performance and usable power. A mix which is fun in city traffic, blast on highways and immensely satisfying on the fastest race tracks. No doubt that the middle-weight motorcycles are some of the highest selling performance motorcycles in the world. See all used DSK-Benelli Bikes for sale on OLX and you might find your favorite one! In the last five years or so, India has also been witnessing a rise in performance motorcycles in different segments from international manufacturers. Unfortunately, while we have some of the most expensive and the fastest motorcycles, we are still a bit devoid of options when it comes to the middle-weight category. The proof of which is in the fact that we have only one 600cc inline 4 from Japan so far and that is the Honda CBR650F. There are more such motorcycles that will do well in our market. Triumph Daytona 675’s success proves that there’s good potential for Supersport motorcycles in India. We believe it is only a matter of time that other companies realize this and so, we would love to see the likes of Yamaha YZF-R6, Honda CBR600RR and Kawasaki ZX-6R on our shores. CEATPirelli_2 Interestingly, lack of these motorcycles demands our focus on the presence of Benelli, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer that has been through the toughest of times and has managed to make a comeback under the ownership of the Chinese group Qianjiang. Spartan pro gear template Benelli has an interesting lineup of motorcycles and has been quite aggressively making efforts to expand their business across the country through various DSK dealerships. And while we feel frustrated that most Japanese manufacturers are yet to make a move, it is good to see Benelli stepping up with a couple of sportbikes with precisely the right hardware and price.
One of these is a streetfighter, TNT 600i, with a 600cc inline 4 DOHC liquid cooled engine and a 4-into-2 under seat exhaust setup. The design is spot on to get our attention but what about the power? Well, it is far from disappointing at 85.1PS at 11,500 RPM and 54.6NM at 10,500 RPM. One of the only negative points in the motorcycle is the high wet weight of 231 kg and the lack of ABS. 1 (1) 1 (2) We Sincerely thank DSK Benelli and Mr. Shirish kulkarni for letting us ride TNT 600i – The Special Edition 1 (3) _54A3833 _54A3201 _54A3803 _54A3804 _54A3829 _54A3825 _54A3818 _54A3811 _54A3812 IMG_0248-Edit DCIM100MEDIADJI_0117.JPG Minus these, the 600i is an impressive motorcycle with good performance and sound. Like a typical naked with slightly sporty ergonomics, it offers an involving riding experience around bends. The steel trellis frame, upside-down forks and mono-shock at the rear ensure that the overall riding dynamics are on the sportier side. Benelli introduced a limited edition of 600i with metallic golden colour and it looks quite premium as well.

It is precisely for reasons we started this feature with. We hope that it continues to sell well as it is a pretty good motorcycle at a very competitive price. Its success is important for the betterment of this segment and, of course, for us. You can find it even cheaper on OLX. So, do a quick search and give realization to your dream of owning a multi-cylinder sportbike.
