    Don't know if its the right place still sharing it.

    Saw all the 4 Benellis up-front last week in "Xbhp Thank you ride" and had test rides on the 300 and 600 so sharing my perspective as a D390 owner :

    300 : It looks bigger for a 300cc in-person. The exposed naked frame with mono-shock looks butch and the aural note is loud and sounds more like a V-twin than a parallel one.
    Its power delivery is smooth and has a linear acceleration unlike the blitzkrieg one I am habituated too .
    I felt a tad bit heavier in handling but planted on higher speeds even tough a naked, would be a good tourer IMHO.
    The engine heat was negligible.


    600 GT : Its substantially bigger in height and weight than the 300 or even the 600i, weighing 250+ kilos with tank capacity of 27 ltrs.
    I being tad below 5'8 with no long legs and a heavier chassis could just manage to put both my feet. But all that weight vanishes when you slot first gear.
    Its very smooth, silent with good low end grunt and flat torque as you climb up the rpms. Its more than eager to do triple digits effortlessly but with maturity and dexterity.
    This inline-four is largely muted unless revved but still music to your ears . It was with pannier attachments and would be a perfect tourer with all your luggage.

    Small facts common in them :
    Odometers for all the models looked very similar
    The ECU check happens once the ignition is switched on even-tough the bike is already on.
    Fit and finish looked good specially with people dismissing it saying "Chinese-made" .
    Probably you already know none of the models have ABS but the tires and brakes were decent enough


    I didn't (dare to) ride the 899 . Its the only motorcycle which has the Italian flag in its tank since its a CBU .
    The aural note of this inline-three in high rpms was orgasmic.

    Will share some pictures soon.

    Yes! Finally the wait is almost over. We just have a day before the prices are officially unveiled. I am expecting a price of 2.75L ex-showroom for the TNT 300. Anything lesser than that, I am getting it for sure

    My justification for this expectation - The ill-fated Inazuma was being sold for 2.1L ex-showroom after the huge price cut. The Benelli TNT 300, much like the Inazuma will be imported from China as kits and assembled here. Compared to the Inazuma, Benelli has 50 cc and 14 PS extra. And on features front, the Italian has dual disc up front and inverted forks - so I am assuming they would do well to price it about 50-60k over the Inzauma.

    Hence 2.75L

    If they'll price it around 3.5 lacs on road, I am sure it will die before its birth...
