Benelli Tornado 302R to launch in Jan 2017

Benelli has confirmed that its upcoming model, the Tornado 302R, will launch in January. It was expected to be launched this Diwali, but a little delay means that it will debut in 2017.

The Tornado 302R is the fully-faired motorcycle based on the TNT300 streetbike. It competes with the likes of the KTM RC390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha YZF-R3. It hasn’t got the best performance of the lot, but one can’t deny that its soundtrack is the best one, hands down. Expect it to be priced between the KTM and the Yamaha – and we expect it will increase sales for the Italian brand significantly, based on its exhaust note and fairing alone.
