DSK Benelli has launched today, a limited edition of the TNT 600i. It features a Golden body shade that’s available only on the flagship model, TNT 1130R. The colour is termed “Oro” as per the company’s nomenclature. In addition, the TNT 600i Gold edition features very subtle cosmetic changes.
The usual colours of 600i are Rosso (Red), Bianco (White) and Nero (Black).
Only 60 units of the TNT 600i (LE) will be sold throughout India, from 3rd October. It is priced higher than the standard 600i, at INR 5,58,000 in Delhi and INR 5,66,000 in Pune (ex-showroom). The regular TNT 600i is priced at INR 5.19 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), which becomes INR 6.05 lakhs (on-road Delhi).
There is no change in the performance of the Golden 600i. The LE model features the same 600 cc inline 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with DOHC, that churns out 85 PS (62.57 KW) at 11,500 rpm and 54.6 Nm of torque at 10,500 rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The rest of the equipment onboard the middle-weight street fighter is also unaltered, including the inverted telescopic forks and monoshock at the rear, dual disc brake upfront, single disc brake at the rear (both without ABS), and the Pirelli Angel GT tyres of size 120/70-ZR17 upfront and 180/55-ZR17 at the rear.
