ABS Equipped 2017 Benelli TNT 300 Launched; non-ABS Model Discontinued

2017 Benelli TNT 300 ABS will be DSK’s second offering in the 250-300 cc segment with the safety tech…

DSK has officially launched the 2017 TNT 300 in India and the biggest feature enhancement is the inclusion of the much-needed Anti-Lock Braking System aka ABS. After the faired 302R, which got ABS as standard, it was only a matter of time before it trickled down to the naked sibling.

2017 TNT 300 gets a switchable and dual-channel ABS system with the button to switch it off placed near the left side handlebar. There are no mechanical differences to the motorcycle and it continues with the 300 cc DOHC, 8-Valve, liquid cooled engine capable of 38.25 PS of peak power and 26.5 Nm of max torque.

The ‘twin petal disc-single rotor at the rear’ braking setup has been carried over as it is and with this step DSK Benelli becomes the only company to offer ABS in two of its motorcycles in the twin-cylinder 250-300 cc segment.
