It’s quite possible that Benelli took to localisation after witnessing the success of the Kawasaki Ninja 300. The Japanese bike maker played it smart by localising most of its components, the result of which was a massive price drop. Currently, the Ninja 300 retails for Rs 2.98 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom).
The price revision is effective immediately, so customers can book either the TNT 300 or 302R via any Benelli showrooms present across the country.
