QJMotor is ready to set foot in Europe after successfully passing the safety and emission regulations.
- QJMotor to enter Europe with three new models.
- QJMotor is betting on the SKR700, SKR400 and SRV550 for its first batch of bikes to reach Europe.
For those who are not in the loop, QJMotor (Qianjiang Motorcycle) is a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer founded in 1985.
While the brand is less known in Europe, its subsidiary, Benelli, has been making waves, especially in Italy, with the TRK 502 emerging as the top-selling bike in the country.
That said, QJMotor wants a piece of the pie and is ready to explore the European market by the end of 2022.
Several models, ranging from small capacity motorcycles up to 800cc adventure bikes, have just been awarded European type approval.
According to reports, the first batch of bikes set to reach Europe is the SRK700, SRK400 and the SRV550.
However, the SRK700 is the most unique as there is no Benelli equivalent and runs on a 689cc parallel-twin that makes 74hp peak power and 55Nm of torque.
QJMotor also claimed the SRK700 hit both peaks of power at lower RPM than the Yamaha MT-07.
In addition, the SRV550 shares the same parallel-twin engine that MV Agusta uses in their Lucky Explorer 5.5.
