With Adishwar Auto Ride India – Mahavir Group as its distributor in India, Benelli has launched its range of motorcycles again. The company currently has 15 dealership, and plans to expand to 25 outlets by the end of the current financial year (March 2019). The production and despatch begins this week, and deliveries are scheduled for December 2nd week onwards, mentions the company.

What does the range comprise?
It has relaunched the Benelli TNT 300, 302R, and the TNT 600i. The TNT 300 is priced at Rs 3.5 lakh, the 302R at 3.7 lakh, and the 600i comes with a price tag of Rs 6.2 lakh. All these are introductory ex-showroom prices. Bookings for the motorcycles are now open against a deposit of Rs 10,000.

Anything else?
Apart from relaunching the range, it has also revised the service intervals for its motorcycles (both old and new). The company mentions that it reduces the service costs by up to 34 per cent. Earlier the periodic service interval was 4000 km/4 months but that has now been extended to 6000 km or 6 months. In addition the company has also increased its standard warranty coverage to 5 years and unlimited mileage. And it thus claims to be the only Superbike manufacturer to do so.

When are new products expected?
During the first quarter of 2019, the company will also launch the TRK 502 (Tourer) and TRK 502X (Adventure).

Benelli India’s MD, Vikas Jhabakh said, “A core element of Benelli’s vision in India is to enhance customer satisfaction. On that front, we recently announced revised service interval plans that reduces service costs by up to 34 percent. Staying true to our commitment, we are also announcing 5-years of unlimited kilometre warranty as standard, making Benelli the first Superbike brand in India to offer such an unmatchable benefit to its customers.”

The company’s CEO, Krishna Malge further adds, “With a series of new models in the pipeline, we are also focusing on expanding our dealership base across the country. We will have about 40 dealers by March 2019, bringing Benelli closer to our existing and prospective customers.”
