The heart of the Benelli TNT 25 is a single-cylinder unit which churns out a maximum power of 28.16bhp at 9,800rpm. The liquid-cooled 249cc engine also delivers 21.61Nm of peak torque at a slightly lower 8,000rpm. This is the first bike from the Benelli stable which has a single-cylinder engine, which has helped Benelli to keep the price of the TNT 25 very competitive. The job of delivering the power to the rear wheel is done by a six-speed gearbox.
DSK Benelli is banking a lot on the TNT 25. According to company officials, so far, around 250 bookings have already been confirmed and the sales target is 8,000 bikes over the next year. To meet this target, DSK Motowheels is setting up a new assembly plant near Pune. Overall, the DSK Benelli TNT 25 is a good quality product, and with specs, at least on paper, backing the performance it claims, it will rival entry-level performance bikes like the Honda CBR 250R, Mahindra Mojo, and even the KTM Duke 390.
