The New Benelli TNT 135 LE (Limited Edition) @ RM9,988,00
The Small, Lightweight Sport Machine with Big-Bike Styling and Componentry is back with a refreshed aesthetic makeover.
The newly launched Benelli TNT 135 LE, is a mini/fun bike which is the smallest variant in Benelli’s network & it comes with tons of additional aesthetic accessories in red which gives it a more fiery & sporty look. At the front, the LE version comes with a new sporty red brake & clutch lever with handle bar protectors, a handle bar riser, front axle bar slider & a front brake reservoir cover cap. At the rear, you get various accessories ranging from a rear axle bar slider, engine oil cap, oil filter cap, an engine protector, frame decorations, carbon fiber exhaust cover & matching front & rear footrest.
The TNT 135 LE version retains the Oil-cooled, 135cc, dual-plug, SOHC featuring a 5-speed transmission which fulfills the EURO 4 standards. The ever flexible engine is the key, as the TNT 135 engine spreads its 13 horsepower over the entire rpm range. This makes the engine’s power extremely easy to use. The five transmission speeds offer even more flexibility, so riders will always find a perfect gear for every situation. This makes the Benelli TNT 135 LE the perfect ride for younger and/or newer riders.
To accompany the TNT 135 LE’s engine, its chassis is every bit as advanced too. Start with the frame which has a steel-tube lattice design that’s reminiscent of our larger bike frames, only a bit smaller and lighter. The frame has a single down tube, which helps the engine form an integral element of the frame’s superb rigidity. Optimal frame geometry helps ensure stable yet sporty handling on both smooth and rough roads, while a 41mm inverted fork up front similar to our bigger bikes and a preload-adjustable single shock system at the back helps shield the rider and passenger from ruts, bumps and rougher roads.
The BenelIi TNT 135 LE is sporty, lightweight, and easy to ride. The bike is equipped with cast-alloy wheels, disc brakes front and rear, a steel-tube lattice frame, single shock suspension in the back, an inverted fork up front, and a sporty dual-tipped exhaust system which offers a sporty yet quiet exhaust note gives the TNT 135 LE a high tech & big bike feel, while an electric push start button makes getting started an easy affair. To top it off, the TNT 135 LE’s wheels are 12-inch cast-alloy units fitted with grippy, higher-profile tires that offer extra compliance for a plush ride and extra comfort.
The TNT 135 LE comes in Black, White & Red with a limited edition sticker stripe & a Limited Edition sticker with running numbers for the 1000 units produced. The TNT 135 LE is priced at RM9988.00 excluding GST & insurance. With its amazingly affordable price, it’s the perfect around-town or country motorcycle for younger or newer riders.
