Benelli SRK600 pics have leaked on the internet and it may be the premium version of the new TNT 600 which is expected to launch soon…
Benelli is working on strengthening its mid-size motorcycle portfolio. It is already known that it is preparing the new TNT 600 and multiple variants of the same have been spotted so far. It, now gets clear that Benelli will have more than one streetfighter motorcycles in this space on the same platform.
What you see on this page is the spotting of the 600 once again but with its (new) moniker. Based on the stickerwork, we can safely assume that this motorcycle will be called as SRK600 or SR600K. It is one of the motorcycles that was spied earlier. You can check earlier spy pics here. Check other variants here.
Now, in November last year, Benelli unveiled the new 2020 TNT 600 which was different from the earlier spy shots. This makes us believe that the Italian-Chinese company has decided to offer it at least in two variants – basic and premium, most probably under different names.
The SRK600 in these pics is sporting premium features like keyless ignition, backlit switches, a full colored TFT display, LED headlamp, etc. This may mean that the SRK could be the premium version which may be marketed in various markets as a separate brand.
There may also be a power tune difference between variants. For reference, the 2020 TNT 600 produces 81.6 PS of peak power at 11,500 rpm and 51 Nm of max torque at 10,500 rpm from the same 600cc, inline 4 cylinder, DOHC engine.
However, a lot still remains to get clearer as Benelli is keeping its cards close to its chest. And with the market opening up after the COVID-led lockdown, we should be hearing from the maker soon.
The new 600 is also expected to come to India as Benelli India’s MD has already revealed that the first focus is to resurrect the existing lineup with their BS6 products. You can read more details here.
