- Benelli 600RR fully-faired bike spotted in China once again
- Will be called the QJ SRG600 in China
- Spy shots reveal two variants with different suspension and brakes
Benelli’s upcoming fully-faired sportsbike, the 600RR, was spotted undisguised last month. Now, fresh spy shots of the motorcycle have emerged online, revealing two different variants of the motorcycle.
The new pictures of the motorcycle have emerged from China where it will be called the QJ SRG600. QJMotor is a new sub-brand of Qianjiang, a Chinese two-wheeler company that owns Benelli. The SRK600 is the first product under this QJMotor brand that was launched recently. It is essentially the next-generation TNT600i naked bike.
Going by the new shots, the Benelli 600RR is available in two versions which differ in terms of hardware. One of them is a lower-spec model with silver inverted front forks and radially-mounted J. Juan brake calipers at the front and rear. The second higher-spec model sports golden forks along with more premium axially-mounted Brembo brake calipers. Both variants look identical in other aspects.
This shows that QJMotors is going the SRK600 (TNT 600i) way with the SRG600 (600RR) by offering multiple variants of the motorcycle. The former has been introduced in three variants in China, which incorporate different brakes and suspension. Meanwhile, the chassis and engine of the naked and sportsbike are identical. Powering them is a 600cc, in-line four cylinder motor which is compliant with the new emissions norms. On the new TNT 600i, this unit produces 80.4bhp and 55Nm which could be nearly the same for the fully-faired bike.
The China launch of the QJ SRG600 (Benelli 600RR) is likely to take place soon while details about its launch in other countries should emerge at a later stage.
