The DSK-Benelli is a street bike worthy of the infamous Fast & Furious city races.

Late last year italian motorcycle legend benelli decided to give its most performance oriented bike a makeover. The all new TNT 1130R (new name and updates to replace the existing R160 in the stable) has finally made it’s way to India as a collaboration between Indian giant DSK and Benelli. Charged with an oversquare 1131cc triple cylinder engine producing 116 kw at 10,200 rpm and 120 Nm at 8,400 rpm, the TNT 1130R is one of the most exhilarating naked superbikes we’ve seen. The body (bellypan, front mudguard and tailcover) is finished with lashings of carbon fibre making it a sleek road ninja complemented with light, but strong alloy wheels. Priced at `11,81,000 at the showroom in Delhi, the bike is available in black, red and gold.
