Know more about Benelli
Benelli started operations in 1911 and counts among oldest surviving Italian brands in the world. Teresa Benelli invested her entire family capital into a venture that could help her six sons get full time employment during those days.
They primarily worked on repair and spare part production as Benelli Garage was away from producing something that could give them a unique identity. Benelli Garage worked hard in fixing First World War Italian machines and soon after, presented their first motorcycle in 1919. It took them just one year to make a production ready 75cc, single cylinder engine at their garage.
Five brothers worked in the garage with six other employees initially. Tonino Benelli, the youngest brother out of six, became a popular performance racer riding Benelli 175. He won 4 out of 5 Italian championship titles. Second World War limited Benelli’s exposure to races outside and they focused more on repairs and development.
They developed a powerful four cylinder 250cc racer around 1940. They were unable to produce anything due to World War destruction. They restarted their repairing process and sold wartime bikes to civilians for profit generation after things started to settle around the world.
After taking a huge hit from Japanese brands and their popular products, Benelli went extinct for a long time. It was revived around 1989 and entered the market again with capable products like TNT 1130 and Tornado TRE 900. Benelli operates in India through a joint venture with DSK and now has a respectable dealership network in the country.
The range starts from TNT 25 and goes up to TNT 600 GT. They had discontinued the bigger variants due to lack of sales. The price range starts well under INR 2 lakh and could become more flexible when they bring the 150cc model to the Indian market.

The service centers are often slow to respond and sometimes even order the wrong parts. This means that if you own a Benelli bike, you may have difficulty getting it serviced and finding the right parts.
Furthermore, there are often multiple Benellis lying in garages, which suggests that they may not be particularly reliable. All in all, while Benelli bikes may look attractive, they may not be the most reliable or cost-effective choice.

What are the differences between Benelli TNT 25 and BN251?
The Benelli TNT 25 and BN251 both offer a powerful punch in terms of engine performance, but they differ in terms of spec and design. The TNT 25 is powered by a 249 cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that produces 26.2 bhp of power and 21.7 Nm of torque. It features an alloy wheel, dual-channel ABS, and a 5-speed gearbox.
The BN251, on the other hand, is powered by a 250 cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that produces 27.1 bhp of power and 22.3 Nm of torque. It features an alloy wheel, dual-channel ABS, and a 6-speed gearbox. TheBenelli TNT25 also offers better mileage compared to the BN251. It is estimated to deliver around 35 km/l in city and 45 km/l on the highway, while the BN251 can deliver around 30 km/l in city and 40 km/l on the highway.
Is Benelli TNT 25 worth buying?
When it comes to buying a Benelli TNT 25, I wouldn't recommend it. The ride quality is the only good thing about this bike, and it's not worth the money you'll have to invest in it. Maintenance costs and parts availability are also poor. In two years, I spent more than 1.2 lakh rupees on this bike.
For long rides, it really depends on the rider. If you're looking for a street bike in this price range, the Benelli TNT 25 is a good option. But if you're after a touring bike, it's worth considering the Kawasaki Versys or Benelli TRK 502. These are designed for tarmac roads only.
