DSK Motowheels, a subsidiary of DSK group is planning to hit the Indian market with their Benelli Tornado 302 sports bike to the festive season (Diwali) of this year. The company is already successfully launched its previous model Benelli TNT 300 which is doing pretty well in this competitive market. Both of these models have many resemblances like both possess four-stroke, in-line two-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 300cc engine which can easily peak power in the range of 36.5- 38.5hp.
The manufacturer is aiming that the Benelli Tornado 302 will become a threat for Kawasaki Ninja 300, Yamaha YZF-R3 and many other entry level sports bike. Since their previous model Tornado 302 is performing well hence company is planning to bring their new model to the showrooms and that's why the new model is already in homologation stage.
The manufacturer is also confirmed that the new model will be assembled at their Talegaon plant which has the capacity to produce 480 units per month. But now the company is planning to increase this number and hence are doing several hefty investments. Moreover, the company is planning to introduce its twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 500cc adventure-tourer, Benelli TRK 502 in December 2016 or may be at the beginning of January 2017.
The company is currently focusing on the upgradation for its model for BS-IV emission and the mandatory ABS norms. The company is planning to enhance its dealership network (currently, they have 18 dealers) under DSK Benelli and is planning to sell 4,000 units in FY2016-17.
