Such an awesome sport cruiser
I have been using the bike for a year now. Have clocked 15000 kms so far, most of it in highways. The Benelli TNT 300 is the entry level sport cruiser from the Italian stable. The 300cc parallel twin is an absolute delight to ride, both in city and in the highways. Its sheer power can be felt when you cross 7k RPM, while you can relax in its torquey ride within the city. It has a very nice riding position (sporty, yet comfortable). Its surprising that even a person who is 6'3* find it very comfortable. The bike has a very distinct exhaust note. Its a real head turner. Though the front look might be subtle, the bike has a distinct finish in the sides and rear. With H7 headlamp assembly, and LED turn indicators, it comes with a good road look. The inverted telescopic front shocks and the offset rear mono-shock makes you feel almost no bumps. Being on the heavier side, the shocks do a really great job. The brakes are extraordinarily good, though the bike lacks an ABS. The stock tyres are bliss.. the Pirelli Angel has such a road grip. Being dual compound, it lasts long. Some downsides are: 1. Being very heavy, quick maneuvers in traffic can be a bit tough. 2. Mileage can bite your purse. 3. High maintenance costs are spares are all imported. 4. Low quality of heavy wear-tear parts, resulting in need for replacements too soon.
