Benelli launches TNT 150, TNT 15 and BN 251 in Nepali market


Motorcycles in 150cc segment attract a lot of interest amongst buyers because they not only provide best value for money but also provide easy handling and comfortable ride.  People are attracted towards 150cc segment for great looks, decent power & mileage, and motorcycle manufacturers know that.

Benelli previously had overlooked this segment, and now the company has launched not one but two new motorcycles in this 150 cc segment in Nepali market – the TNT 15 and TNT 150.

Additionally, the company has also launched another 250 cc motorcycle , BN251 which not only is versatile and affordable but also designed to deal with a wide range of daily tasks.

Over the past half-century Benelli has been completely reinvented, with the key change being the 2005 takeover by the Chinese motorcycle manufacturer Quianjang. Since then, new bikes have been designed in the West but built in the East, and perhaps as a consequence, the brand still seems to be defining its identity. It has one foot in China and one foot in Italy; one foot in the 20th century, and one in the 21st.

Lets take a quick look at new Benelli motorcycles launched in Nepali market 2DAY.

Benelli TNT 15


The 150cc TNT15 naked bike is powered by an air-cooled single-cylinder 148cc engine, mated to a five-speed gearbox.

The bike is equipped with tubeless 90/90-17 profile tyre on front and 110/90-17 at rear, with disc brakes available on front wheels only.

In terms of looks, the TNT 15 sports a muscular, sculpted fuel tank with styling clearly taking inspiration from bigger Benellis. The headlamp is reminiscent of the TNT 300 and the TNT 15 also gets tank extension panels, colour coordinated belly pan, split seats and a stubby side-mounted exhaust.

Suspension consists of telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear, and braking duties are handled by a single disc at the front with a rear drum.

The bike weighs 144 kg, making it even less effective on paper with the lowest possible power-to-weight ratio in comparison to all 150cc Indian bikes.
