Chinese motorcycle-making giant Qiangjiang (QJ) has entered its Keeway brand into the EU market for the first time this week. Targeted towards newbie riders is the Keeway MBP M502N naked bike and, based on its specifications and styling, QJ isn’t leaving things to chance with this entry.
A quick study of the MBP M502N’s spec sheet revealed the presence of plenty of quality components all around. Amongst them too is a nifty digital dash display. This seems to bode well not just with the bike’s styling, but also with its rather welcoming 790mm seat height.
Underneath its sharp and snazzy styling, the Keeway MBP M502N underpins a twin-spar chassis frame construction with a double-sided steel swingarm assembly. As for wheels and tyres, the MBP502N adopt 17-inch cast alloys wrapped in Pirelli Angel GT rubber.
Tasked with suspension duties is a pair of upsidedown (USD) KYB fork up front, whereas braking hardware is sourced from J.Juan featuring dual-piston calipers and twin 300mm discs up front plus a 240mm disc at the rear grabbed by single-piston caliper instead.
Crucially, the Keeway MBP M502N packs a respectably peppy 486cc parallel-twin that’s reportedly loosely based off of the unit found in the Honda CB500 series. It’s claimed 47HP output sees this naked presenting itself as a viable choice for discerning newbie riders holding an A2-class license.
Certainly, the €6,290 (approx. RM29,084.46) price tag that the Keeway MBP502N commands in the EU market ought to see it tempt plenty of newbie riders it was built for. What do you folks think of this slightly upmarket Chinese-built entry middleweight naked?
