DSK Benelli has finally started accepting bookings for its long awaited fully-faired bike, the 302R. The 302R has been going under rigorous testing for more than one year across the country and will make it to our shores as a CKD.
The 302R is based on Benelli’s Tornado lineage which includes superbikes all the way up to 1130cc (TNT R). Powered by a 300cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine mounted on a trestle frame, the 302R offers decent combination of touring as well sporty riding. Commenting about the bookings, Mr. Shirish Kulkarni, Chairman, DSK Motowheels said, “It is quite overwhelming to see that DSK Benelli 302R is receiving such a positive customer response even before it has entered the market. This signifies the trust and brand salience that DSK Benelli has been able to develop amongst the Indian motorcycle enthusiasts. What’s more remarkable about 302R is the fact that the fully faired sports bike is a true manifestation of the Tornado pedigree, whose legacy has enchanted the global superbiking community for about half a century now. Since advance bookings for the premium bike have been initiated, we are foreseeing strong disruptions in the Indian mid-range biking segment.”
The 302R will be sold and serviced across DSK Benelli showrooms in the country.
