Benelli had unveiled the ‘Tornado 302’ at the 2015 EICMA and they had also showcased it at the 2016 IBW along with one more interesting upcoming product- TRK 502. The ‘Benelli 302R’ is the name finally christened by the company for India. The faired Benelli 302R comes equipped with 300cc inline-Twin cylinder, liquid cooled four stroke engine. The Benelli 302 R’s mill is capable to produce 35 PS of power and 27 NM of torque at 9000 Rpm.
On the occasion Shirish Kulkarni, Chairman, DSK Motowheels said,
It is quite overwhelming to see that DSK Benelli 302R is receiving such a positive customer response even before it has entered the market. This signifies the trust and brand salience that DSK Benelli has been able to develop amongst the Indian motorcycle enthusiasts. What’s more remarkable about 302R is the fact that the fully faired sports bike is a true manifestation of the Tornado pedigree, whose legacy has enchanted the global superbiking community for about half a century now. Since advance bookings for the premium bike have been initiated, we are foreseeing strong disruptions in the Indian mid-range biking segment.
