We exclusively told you about this earlier this month and now Benelli India has launched the TNT 300 ABS in the country priced at ₹ 3.29 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India). The new ABS equipped Benelli TNT 300 is about ₹ 26,000 more expensive than the standard version and replaces the non-ABS model in the bike maker's line-up. The TNT 300 joins the TNT 600i and the recently launched 302R in Benelli's stable to get ABS as standard. The entry-level TNT 25 misses out on ABS alone, but we do expect the model to get an update in sometime.

The Benellit TNT 300 ABS gets no changes apart from the inclusion of the safety feature. It is a dual-channel unit that can be switched off, should you want to get a little adventurous. We told you that order books for the TNT 300 ABS are already open, while deliveries are said to begin in the next two weeks.

Power output on the Benelli TNT 300 ABS remains the same from the 300 cc in-line, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to churn out 37 bhp at 11,500 rpm and 26.5 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm. The street-fighter comes with a 6-speed gearbox, while the suspension setup includes USD forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear. Braking performance comes from the dual petal discs at the front and a single disc brake at the rear. The Benelli TNT 300 ABS rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with Metzeler tyres.

The TNT 300 is the Benelli India's second bestselling offering and the ABS equipped version is certain to bring more customers to the showrooms. Benelli bikes are known for that delectable exhaust note and the TNT 300 sounds fantastic as well. However, with a kerb weight of 196 kg, the bike lags when it comes to outright performance.

The Benelli TNT 300 ABS comes close to the KTM 390 Duke on the feature front. Meanwhile, the Kawasaki Z250 also competes against TNT, and is the least selling model here. The absence of ABS isn't helping its case either.
