QJ Motor has revealed a new mid-priced model to compete in the middleweight sportbike market. Even though it hasn’t any official name, the QJ Motors motorcycle will include a parallel-twin engine and a familiar design.
If all goes well, the sportbike could be an alternative to the Honda CBR500R and CFMoto 450SR. Both of which have A2 compliant engines and comparable bodywork.
Build and specifications
The new QJ Motor 550cc sportbike has a displacement of 554ccs. This translates to 47 horsepower when the A2 licensing requirements are considered. Yet, the engine can produce up to 56 horsepower and 40 pound-feet of torque when released. Customers in Europe may be able to make the QJ Motor sportbike A2 compliant. It will increase its power at the dealership once its driving licenses have matured.
Lucky Explorer’s 5.55-litre motor is shared with Benelli Leoncino and TRK 502’s 502C mill. It is a bored-out version of Benelli Leoncino’s mill. As the parent firm of both of these brands, one may hope that the Benellis will give a boost in displacement and power at the right time.
The motorcycle’s power figures and the accompanying equipment are visible in the images. The chassis will be of steel, including a unique single-sided swingarm. In EICMA, CFMoto showed off a concept bike with a single-swingarm but used a standard double-sided array.
So, QJ Motors went all-in and put one on this 550cc sportbike. A set of front forks and a rear mono-shock will be supplied by KYB, while Brembo will supply the bike’s braking system, making it even more astonishing.
