Benelli India currently has only one BS 6-compliant motorcycle in the portfolio, the new Imperiale 400. The bike was introduced in July at ₹1.99 lakh, ex-showroom. Now the company has announced the list of new bikes which will be launched in the market shortly. There will be seven new motorcycles added to the company's portfolio which include the BS 6-compliant TRK 502, TRK 502X, Leoncino 500, 302S, 302R, Leoncino 250 and also the new TNT 600i.
Most interesting of the lot will of course be the new TNT 600i BS 6, though what remains to be seen is if it's the same bike that's sold in the Chinese markets as the SRK600 or not. Chances are unlikely though.
