The Benelli TNT 135 has now arrived in Australia, where until now we have only had the 125. We will be riding it in a week or so. Meanwhile here are some details...
The learner approved (LAMS) TNT 135 is finally here in Australia. Prior to this we have had the 125, while most of the world had the extra 10cc. You can read our 125 review here.
Powered by a 135cc single-cylinder, which has a bore 4.3mm larger than the 125, air-cooled four-stroke engine and coupled to a class-leading five-speed gearbox, Benelli say the TNT 135 is just at home on the suburban roads as it is navigating through the busiest city streets, it is 2hp more than the 125 and .8Nm more.

The TNT 135 is available now in white, red or black at your authorised Benelli dealership for just $3,990 ride away (as cheap as $18.63* per week x 5 years through Urban Motor Finance), including two years warranty and roadside assist.
We will be riding the Benelli TNT 135 in a week or so on the streets of Melbourne plus on a Go Kart track so stay tuned for a full.
