According to Speedoz Ltd the bike will attract young customers, those who want a small pocket bike in the congested Dhaka city. Also because the bike isn’t too tall so many people who are short or are new bikers will find it easy to ride it.
Looking at the bike we can see that it have 4 small headlights which all illuminated together to give more lights on the road. Rear indicator lights are integrated. Handle bar is a pipe unit.
Speedometer is digital while the rev counter is analog. Though the bike have two split seats but it will be a bit tough for two adult person to sit on the Benelli TNT 135. I am worried that the under belly of the bike will hit some speed breakers in Dhaka city due to low ground clearance.
Currently Speedoz Ltd didn’t reveal the price of Benelli TNT 135 but they did say that unlike Keeway brand the price of Benelli motorcycles will be in the premium segments. They will be launching Benelli TNT 135 in Bangladesh very soon & this will be the is the 3rd motorcycle that Speedoz Ltd introduced in the last one month; they also said that very soon they will bring updated version of Keeway RKS150 in Bangladesh.

And, with this upcoming launch of Benelli TNT 135 in Bangladesh, everyone will get the taste of an European pocket bike and the zest of it.
