The first single cylinder engine by Benelli churns out a maximum power of 28.16 bhp at 9,800 rpm with a peak torque of 21.61 Nm at 8,000 rpm. To offer a soothing ride quality, the manufacturer has equipped the bike with inverted forks up front and a mono shock absorber at the rear end. The 250cc machine rides on stylish 17-inch black alloy wheels and has reliable hydraulic single disc brakes at the front and rear for powerful and  responsive braking. Built on an exposed trellis frame, the bike shares its design philosophy with its sibling - TNT 300. The all-black theme and the sporty split step-up seats add some premiumness to the machine.

 

Benelli TNT 25 has total body dimensions of 2,080mm x 810mm x 1,125mm (LxWxH) that give it a decent stance in public. The entry-level offering from Benelli comes with a wheelbase of 1,400mm and a minimum ground clearance of 160mm. The bike has been assisted with a 17-liter fuel tank and has a total kerb weight of 159kgs. Like all other Benelli models, the TNT 25 will come through the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route and will be assembled locally at the company’s facility in Pune. The bike was first showcased at the 2015 India Bike Week (IBW) and later on, was also displayed sometime back at 2015 EICMA in Milan, Italy. Benelli TNT 25 will now rival directly with Mahindra Mojo and KTM 200 Duke in the quarter-litre naked streetfighter category.
