The legendary Italian automaker, Benelli introduced a slew of new models for the Indian markets at the Autoexpo this year. Among the new models, Trk 502 and Tornado 302R were the most talked about models at the Benelli stand.


Good news is that the company is getting geared up to launch the fully faired Tornado 302R in January next year. The reason behind the delayed launch is that the models are still pending to get clearance from ARAI.


  • Engine specs?

It will be powered by the twin-cylinder 300cc liquid-cooled engine churning out 36bhp of maximum power at 10,000rpm and 27.4Nm of peak torque at 9,000rpm. It is the same engine as seen on the TNT 300 Naked.


  • What about the price point?

We expect that the Tornado 302 will be priced somewhere around Rs 3.50 lakh.

  • Closest competitors?

There are a couple of competitors to the Tornado 302 already present in the segment. Motorcycles like KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3 and Ninja 300, are all set lock horns against the newest faired Italian in the segment.
