Last year, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways asked manufacturers to update two-wheelers above 125cc with either ABS (anti-lock braking system) or CBS (combined brake system). This decision will help in curbing accidents on the Indian Roads and improve the safety of the riders.

Benelli TNT 300 ABS Features:

The TNT 300 ABS is a naked street-fighter and the most affordable twin-cylinder motorcycle in the India. The TNT 300 is powered by a 300cc, liquid cooled, 8 valves, DOHC, In-line 2-cylinder engine. Producing a good 28.14 KW of power and 26.5 Nm of torque; this engine mates with a 6-speed gearbox. Hydraulic dual disc brakes at the front and a Hydraulic single disc at the rear; which is now controlled by the ABS, carry out the braking duties.

Apparently, there is no change in the looks of the TNT 300 ABS version as against its predecessor. Also, it is mechanically the same as the non-ABS version which features a Trellis steel frame. The front suspension consists of inverted telescopic forks, while the rear has an off-set mono-shock absorber. The dealers are now accepting the bookings.
