THE Tornado Naked TNT 600i, Benelli’s latest addition to their learner approved motorcycle line-up, is expected to hit Australian and New Zealand dealerships in early September.
Marking Benelli’s return to the realm of the inline 4-cylinder engine, the LAMS approved TNT 600i is a truly dynamic motorcycle with a racing character, offering a unique look, paired with addictive power and performance.
Set to be a real standout in the segment, it features the proven 44kW Benelli engine, with liquid cooling and DOHC. Together with its aggressive street looks, the TNT 600i is one exciting naked motorcycle. Maximum torque is 51Nm.
It has wet sump lubrication, wet multi-plate clutch, and a six speed gearbox with final chain drive. The ABS braking system also boasts twin 320mm diameter semi-floating discs at the front with radial callipers and four horizontally opposed pistons.
At the rear, there’s a 260mm diameter disc ensuring powerful, modulated and well balanced braking performance. The aluminium alloy 17-inch rims are fitted with 120/70 and 180/55 tyres respectively.
The combination guarantees superior levels of safety, even in the most difficult situations.
Sharp lines characterise the new Tornado Naked TNT 600i, enhanced by its futuristic LED headlight and full digital TFT colour dashboard, complete with latest generation design and technology.
The exposed chassis consists of a main steel trellis frame, accompanied by sturdy aluminium plates in the swingarm pivot area, a guarantee of rigidity and stability in the most demanding road conditions.
The front suspension system features 50mm USD forks. There is an aluminium alloy swing arm at the rear, with an adjustable mono-shock with spring preload to absorb the most uneven road conditions with maximum ease.
