DSK Benelli has launched a new limited edition model of their middle-weight motorcycle 600i – TNT 600i (LE) which is aimed to offer more exclusivity to its buyers. The 600i LE, which will be limited to just 60 units gets a new golden paint scheme and has been priced at Rs 5.58 lakhs ex-showroom, Delhi and Rs 5.66 Lakhs ex-showroom Pune.
In terms of mechanicals there are no differences; the limited edition 600i LE gets the same 600cc liquid cooled four cylinder engine which produces 85.07 bhp of maximum power at 11,500 rpm and a peak torque output of 54.6 Nm of peak torque at 10,500 rpm. This golden shade, which the brand calls as ‘Oro’, was previously available only in the range topping TNT 1130 R. The TNT 600i (LE) will be available at all Benelli dealerships across India and will be put on sale from October 3, 2015.
Here’s what Mr Shirish Kulkarni, Chairman, DSK Motowheels had to say at the launch:
“The launch has been spurred by the phenomenal success of this superbike in India and we are certain that those who have enjoyed its superb riding experience will now love the enhanced flamboyance that the new colour exudes. This is the only 600cc superbike in the country, ever to be made in the scintillating and royal shade of gold. Only a few exclusive aficionados will get to own this Italian golden beauty.”
The standard TNT 600i is available at Rs 5.19 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi and is one of DSK Benelli’s largest selling models in India. This means that you will have to shell out close to Rs 40,000 more (on the ex-showroom price) for being exclusively-golden!
