Benelli TNT25 vs KTM Duke 200 vs Mahindra Mojo – Comparo

Ashwin Ram

Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Here is a technical specifications comparison of the DSK Benelli TNT 25 versus the KTM Duke 200 and the Mahindra Mojo.

DSK Benelli TNT 25 vs KTM Duke 200 Mahindra Mojo specs comparo

While the kerb weight and wheelbase of the TNT 25 are in between the same measurements of the Duke 200 and the Mojo, its saddle height and ground clearance are the lowest in comparison.

All the three models have similar hardware that includes an inverted telescopic fork, a monoshock, disc brakes on both wheels without ABS and same sizes of tyres – 110/70-R17 upfront and 150/60-R17 at the rear, but the finer differences make one more competitive over the other. The Benelli TNT 25 has a smaller front disc but a bigger rear rotor compared to the KTM Duke. The tyres on the standard variant are the same as the Duke’s MRF REVZ C, but the Mahindra Mojo gets Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres. The TNT 25 is already the most expensive model in this comparison but it gets a higher priced variant with Metzeler tyres as well.

DSK Benelli TNT 25 launched in India
The DSK Benelli TNT 25 is offered in two variants – one with MRF tyres and the other with Metzeler tyres.

The three motorcycles are powered by engines of distinct displacements, with the TNT 25 having the average sized engine (of 250 cc), but its performance is not as commendable as the Duke on paper. The Mahindra Mojo is the most powerful but the Duke has a much higher power-to-weight ratio; yet the Mojo has a significantly higher peak torque than the other two, which is achieved very early.

For a motorcycle that has been imported via the CKD route, the DSK Benelli TNT 25 is competitively priced against its perceived rivals that are manufactured locally. Given the former has been launched towards the end of the year, its price would remain unchanged in 2016 whereas the prices of the KTM Duke 200 and the Mahindra Mojo could be hiked (again).
