The 302R will target the increasing bunch of enthusiasts looking at upgrading from their current 150-200cc bikes.

DSK Motorwheels’ Chairman, Shirish Kulkarni said that though the 302R is the company’s first full-faired bike, their aim to launch it in order to alter the standard of mid-sized category in the country. The company is certain that the DKS Benelli 302R will receive the same kind of splendid response that the previous DSK Benelli models have received. They are very much expecting an overwhelming reception from their customers.

The 302R will be available in three colour variants: Red Nero, Silver Verde and white Rosso. All the colour options will be sold though the 26 DSK Benelli dealerships countrywide.
