Making 85bhp @ 11,500rpm and 54.6Nm of torque @ 10,500rpm, don’t expect much in performance to change when this motorcycle is officially unveiled at the big motorcycle shows later this year – but from these leaked photographs we can see that the new Benelli TNT 600 for 2020 will look a LOT different.
The four-cylinder naked is having a major overhaul in terms of looks, with some of the changes being brought in to not only sharpen the middleweight up (cosmetically) but to further improve handling, too.
The 15 litre petrol tank looks to have become bigger on the new bike, the shoulder fairing has extended further to virtually include the radiator shrouds (indicators are included into the bodywork at the pointiest bit of this new fairing extension), the bike gets new lights front and rear and a new cowl ahead of the dash, too.

The biggest difference is the layout of the exhaust. The end can currently sits under the seat but this has gone with the new pipe exiting just behind the engine to keep mass centralised. The standard numberplate holder on the current bike is also replaced by a floating-type holder.
Expect the new TNT 600 to be officially unveiled at EICMA in Milan which is held in November this year.
