Choose a motorcycle from a 150cc segment, what will it be? Pulsar? Apache? Yamaha? Well, those are generic… Think different. Think international. What if you could go a step further with Benelli? Yes, you heard it right!
Benelli Nepal is moving ahead on bringing Benelli TNT 150 in Nepal. So, this marks the first Benelli TNT in the 150cc segment. But that’s not all the good news! It so happens, Benelli TNT 150 will come in two variants: Carburetor and Fuel-Injection Engine. Among which carburetor variant will be mind-blowingly affordable! Imagine that, an international brand of motorcycle that you could afford!
According to Benelli Nepal, Benelli TNT 150 will be launched in Nepal by the end of January. As soon as the motorcycle makes its way into the showrooms, test rides will be open to riders. And, pricing is drastically different when compared to other Benelli models. Benelli TNT 150 price in Nepal for the carburetor variant is Rs. 2,30,000 and FI variant is Rs. 3,15,000. It is very interesting to see a 150cc motorcycle become so affordable, especially for a carburetor variant.
Trust me, I’ve asked them twice about the pricing. The carburetor variant is just Rs. 2,30,000, which happens to cost even less than the already popular Benelli TNT 135.
Benelli TNT 150 Specifications
The details are incomplete and specs sheets are yet to be confirmed. According to other news outlets, Benelli TNT 150 comes 148cc engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox. And, it will be able to produce max power of 14bhp at 8000rpm and 13.4Nm at 6000rpm. Moreover, it will come with a 16L fuel tank with a mileage of 40kmpl. As for the top speed, the bike can reach speeds up to 130kmph.
The bike is definitely a looker, following the footsteps of TNT 300, with the outstanding muscular design. As for the features, it is expected to host all the latest and greatest the technology has to offer. Although, ABS might be reserved for the FI-variant only. Again, a lot of details are yet to be confirmed.

Benelli TNT 150 Price in Nepal (Carburetor Engine): Rs. 2,30,000
Benelli TNT 150 Price in Nepal (FI Engine): Rs. 3,15,000
TNT 150 variant will be priced at just Rs. 2.30 Lakhs. If this is true, and I hope it is… then get ready for Benelli TNT 150 to be the new Pulsar 150. It is so crazy to even consider, let alone believe, that an international motorcycle can be bought for a price of a 125cc scooter. But knowing how things usually work, there must be few cost-cutting measures in place for Benelli to hit that price point.
I don’t want to overhype with a lot of things yet to be confirmed. Rest assured, I am very interested in the carburetor variant. I might even consider buying the TNT 150. Likewise, offering even the FI variant with ABS for just Rs. 3.15 Lakhs, that just doesn’t happen. Is it a dream or a new reality? At the end of January, we’ll soon find out.
