    personal opinion - I feel it's too expensive for that price what it offers, too heavy for track, fuel tank is ok for a tourer, maybe it's more stable during touring and crosswinds, confusing as what it's core marketed at is... like R3 & Ninjas are marketed as track tools but more comfy with big tanks like N3, yeah you can make it a sport tourer.. R3 also to some extent.. just confused what it's supposed to be.. a heavy weight track tool?
    Definitely not a track tool. It is being more of a sports tourer which could be used as a daily commuted. Of all the options available, only proper track tool is KTM RC390.

    Lesson not learnt makes you prone to repeating the blunders! Why does Benelli have to follow the non-illuminating path of Hyosung?

    If you do not study the Indian market and people's taste, you definitely have lost the game before it could start.

    But numbers and facts prove otherwise. Benelli has put DSK in one of the front runners of 300 and 600 CC segment. They have made some seriously good sales in couple of years. Moreover Hyosung, which was put in a mess by another partner called Garware, was revived by DSK to some extent. But by then damage was already done and bad name got stuck with DSK. Having said that, DSK should still work towards making these beautiful products less pricier and definitely less heavier.

    Went to the showroom to check out the bike and i must say it looks like a 600, I did not like the front in the pictures but in person it looks good. The exhaust is a little high pitched and not too bassy like the Tnt300. Good thing is it has a gearshift indicator, and yeah they are giving warranty of 4 YEARS, UNLIMITED MILEAGE! Test rides start 1st week of next month.
    Sorry no pics! 😥

    Yes weight is little bit on higher side, now 600i looks lighter .

    IMO price is good, i hope they increase service intervals to 6k kms or 6 months whichever is earlier.

    I am sure new BS4 emission norms would have had a impact on exhaust note of the Benelli's(noise is restricted too by norms). Older bikes were too loud (and sweet) even for BS3!
