MForce Bike Holdings, the Malaysian distributor for Benelli, Keeway and SYM motorcycles, has just launched the Benelli TNT 135 LE with the ‘LE’ in its name standing for limited edition. Said motorcycle will be produced in a limited run of just 1,000 units and will be priced from RM9,988 excluding GST & insurance.
With those figures out of the way, let’s get technical for a minute. The Benelli TNT 135 LE comes powered by a 135 cc, liquid- and air-cooled SOHC single-cylinder engine. Total power output is rated at 13 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque figure of 10.8 Nm at 7,000 rpm. The gearbox is a five-speed unit with chain final drive.
The Benelli TNT 135 LE differs from the regular model when the conversation begins to revolve around aesthetics. For starters, the LE comes with red brake and clutch levers with handle bar guards, a handle bar riser, front axle bar slider, a front brake reservoir cover cap, an engine cover, carbon fibre exhaust cover and matching rider and pillion foot pegs. All decked out in crimson, appropriately.
As for the colour options, the Benelli TNT 135 LE will come with choice of three shades – black, white and red. All three options will include limited edition-themed stickers and decals that correspond to each of the 1,000 units produced.
