They are unleashing not one, not two but three new motorcycles at the same time.
Benelli is a name that is widely known to motorcycling aficionados all over the world, including Nepal. With over a hundred years of motorcycling knowledge, Benelli knows how to make proper bikes.
KTM International Trading, the authorised importer of Benelli Motorcycles is launching three new models - Tornado 302R, TRK502 and TNT 135.
The Tornado 302R is a full faired motorcycle that is based on the TNT 300. The 302R produces 35.5 BHP and 27.4 Nm of torque in a sleek and streamlined body that is sure to get lots of attention while riding. With that much power, you’ll need a good set of brakes to ensure a safe ride. The 302R features dual 260 mm disc brakes at the front with ABS as standard. The 302R is a sports bike that is inspired by Benelli’s legendary racing heritage, able to cut through traffic at high speeds with utmost stability.
The Benelli TRK 502 is a middleweight adventure tourer. The beating heart of this motorcycle is a 499.6cc twin cylinder engine that produces 47 BHP and 45 Nm of torque.
The motorcycle has a huge 20 liter tank that can outlast fuel shortages that seem to hit Kathmandu on a whim. Like most adventure motorcycles, the TRK 502 has a high ground clearance of 230 mm yet is comfortable enough for shorter riders to swing their leg over, with a seat height of 815 mm. If you’re looking for a motorcycle to explore every nook and cranny in Nepal, the TRK 502 is an excellent choice.
The Benelli TNT 135 is an interesting motorcycle with features that are usually found on more premium motorcycles. The TNT 135 is fuel injected and uses chunky 41 mm upside-down forks with disc brakes on both wheels. With the engine producing 12.6 HP and 10.8 Nm of torque, it is perfect for beginning riders looking for a fun ride.
The three motorcycles are just the tip of the iceberg with regards to new product launches by KTM International Trading. They are also introducing Benelli’s acclaimed Ebikes such as Achle, Alpan, Link Sport, Nerone HR and Scheggiats.
These ebikes have batteries that allows you to take a break from pedalling and let the electric motor drive the bicycle, with a top speed of 25 km/h.
If your life is getting a little quiet, it may be time to pick up a Benelli motorcycle and start the festivities once again.
