- Packs a 400cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine
- Priced at EUR 5,800 (approximately Rs 4.67 lakh)
- Could help Spawn Benelli’s upcoming bike as well
Chinese two-wheeler maker, QJ Motor (Benelli’s parent company) has revealed its latest offering for the European market. It’s the SRK 400 streetfighter and here’s what it packs.
For starters, unlike many Chinese two-wheelers, the SRK 400 at least has a design language of its own. The split LED headlight looks pretty mean and gives the bike an overall sharp look. It’s flanked by LED turn indicators.
The green chassis makes for a good contrast to the satin grey paint scheme. The overall body panels, rear tyre hugger and stubby underbelly exhaust give the SRK 400 quite an aggressive look.
It’s powered by a 400cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled motor that dishes out 40.9bhp and 37Nm. It’s mated to a 6-speed gearbox. However, it tips the scale at 186kg which means the power to weight ratio takes a hit when compared to its much lighter rivals.
QJ Motor has suspended the SRK 400 on USD front forks and an offset monoshock. Meanwhile, the braking hardware comprises dual front and single rear disc. It rolls on 17-inch alloys wrapped in 110/70 front and 150/60 rear tyres.
In Europe, the QJ Motor SRK 400 retails at EUR 5,800 (approximately Rs 4.67 lakh). Now, that’s quite a high asking price when compared to some of the more affordable offerings available in India.
