2020 Benelli TNT 600i launched in China, price coverts to ₹5.06 lakh
The updated Benelli TNT 600i made its debut at the EICMA 2019. Now, it has been launched in the Chinese market priced at CNY 46,800 ( ₹5.06 lakh).
The 2020 TNT 600i features a slew of updates over the previous model. For starters, it now gets a completely new headlamp featuring full LED lighting. On the lower side, the assembly also gets LED DRLs. The new headlamp looks slightly sleeker and more in-line with the overall design of the motorcycle.
It now also gets ‘600’ decals over the fuel tank extensions instead of the 'TNT' stickers. The rear-section sports no major update. The bike has also received new dual-tone paint scheme which makes it more appealing.

Thankfully, the company has also done away with the previous old-school semi-digital instrument cluster and it now uses a fully-digital colour TFT display.
Apart from these updates, the rest of the motorcycle remains the same. It still features the classic dual under-seat exhausts, split seats, same 15-litres fuel tank, and alloy wheels. Also, the tail-lamp design remains unchanged.
The bike has been made available in two colour options - White/Black and Green/Black.
In terms of mechanicals, the new Benelli TNT 600i runs on the same 600 cc in-line four cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It is rated to produce 60.0 kW (81.58 PS) of maximum power at 11,000 rpm and 51 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm. It comes with a 6-speed gearbox and also features slipper-clutch as a standard fitment. The engine is capable of pushing the TNT 600i to a claimed top-speed of 190 km/hr.
While Benelli India has already announced that the 2019 TNT 600i will receive a BS 6 update, chances are that it might introduce the new 2020 TNT 600i directly instead of the previous unit. Though, nothing is confirmed yet. Accordingly, the price will also see a hike.
