- Teasers show two modern-classic roadsters
- A V-twin power cruiser in the pipeline
- KTM 390 Duke-rival teased as well
China-based QJMotor is all set to arrive in India soon with multiple motorcycles. Going by the teasers posted on its social media channels, the brand’s Indian innings will commence with four motorcycles – SRC250, SRC500, NTX300, and SRK400. Now, ahead of their official India debut, let us give you a brief overview of these motorcycles.
Starting with the smallest offering, the SRC250 is a modern-classic roadster that will compete against the likes of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the TVS Ronin 225. Accompanying its vintage styling and basic hardware is a 249cc, twin-cylinder mill that’s good for 17.5bhp and 16.5Nm of torque. It rides on spoke wheels suspended by telescopic forks and dual springs and are brought to a halt by a single disc at both ends.
The next in line is another neo-retro offering, the SRC500, which is based on the same platform as the Benelli Imperiale 400. Although it boasts larger displacement than the SRC, the engine layout comprises a single cylinder. This 480cc long-stroke mill produces 25.8bhp and 36Nm and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The design and most of the hardware are identical to the Imperiale 400.
The third product is a modern power cruiser with a 296cc, V-twin engine. Christened the NTX300, this motorcycle produces around 30bhp at 9,000rpm and 26Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. Despite being a low-slung cruiser, it looks modern with edgy graphics and blacked-out components. It also gets modern features like a full-LED lighting system and an LCD instrument cluster.
Now, bringing sportiness to the brand’s portfolio will be the fourth product – the SRK400. This naked street bike will compete against the likes of the KTM 390 Duke and the BMW G310R. It boasts a quintessential streetfighter styling comprising aggressive bodywork which is complemented by modern features and premium hardware. Powering the bike is a 400cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor that pumps out 40.9bhp and 37Nm.
