    Default Benelli TNT 300 makes it to the highest motorable village - Kaumik

    The legendary italian brand, Benelli, brought to India by the Pune based DSK group as DSK-Benelli India added another feather to its cap last week when it reached what is believed to be by many as the highest motorable village - Komik in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh India.

    Situated at 4587 meters above sea level, Komik (also written as Kaumik) is definitely one of the highest motorable villages in the world, if not the highest. The road that goes to from Kaza in Spiti valley is a nightmare for any vehicle, be it a 4x4 SUV or a motorcycle, and that makes reaching Komik a real challenge for a motorcycle as well as the motorcyclist. What makes matters worse is the low level of oxygen at such an altitude that makes breathing a difficult task for the bike as well as the biker.

    The Benelli TNT 300 ridden by Anirban Banerjee, an xBhpian from Kolkata, performed flawlessly during this treacherous journey and felt completely at home.

    Being on two wheels is being liberated. The vastness one feels being under the open sky. The whole feeling. . . cant be described.

    Fantastic pics - yeh dil maange more! The bike truly looks like an Italian stallion - personifying pure brute strength without any drama!

    btw - did the low exhaust have any trouble in the water crossings?

    Why is the bike with Temporary Registration? Was this a sponsored ride?
