Malaysian distributor for Benelli, MForce Bike Holdings, has launched the 2018 Benelli TnT 135 LE mini-bike, at a price of RM10,587, including GST, but excluding road tax, insurance and registration. Built in a limited production run of only 1,000 units, the LE version of the TnT135 comes with some extra goodies that set it apart.

Power in the engine room comes from an air- and oil-cooled 134.7 cc, twin-spark, single-cylinder fed by EFI which is Euro 4 compliant. Rated at 13 hp at 9,000 rpm with torque at 10.8 Nm at 7,000 rpm, power gets to the ground via a five-speed gearbox and chain final drive.

Suspension on the TnT135 LE is also taken from the standard model, with 41 mm diameter upside-down forks and a rear monoshock with pre-load adjustment. Braking is with hydraulic discs, with a 220 mm unit clamped with dual-piston callipers in front and 190 mm disc at the back.

Rolling on 12-inch wheels, the TnT135 LE comes shod with 120/70 rubber in front, and a 130/70 in the rear. Differences for the LE to the base model are handlebar risers with bar protectors, engine and frame protectors, carbon-fibre exhaust cover, front and rear axle sliders, and anodised covers for the brake reservoir, engine oil filler cap and oil filter cap.

There are three colour options for the 2018 TnT135 LE – Black, White and Red – with limited edition sticker stripes, along with a limited edition number. Availability for the TnT135 LE is at authorised Benelli dealers throughout Malaysia.
