Benelli is working on a streetfighter bike that should be launched as a QJ Motor (Benelli's parent company) model first, which will be called SRK 700.
In the latest development, a picture of the two-wheeler has been leaked, revealing key design highlights. The image suggests it will have a muscular fuel tank, split seats, a low-slung headlight, and blacked-out wheels.
Here are more details.
Design: The bike will have a LED headlamp for lighting
The QJ SRK 700 will sit on a tubular steel frame and have an aggressive look, featuring a muscular fuel tank with extensions, a stepped-up seat, a lengthy exhaust, arrowhead-shaped mirrors, and eye-catching paintwork.
The bike should have a digital instrument console, a low-slung, full-LED headlight, and shall ride on blacked-out alloy wheels. It will tip the scales at 192kg.
Fact: It will run on a 76hp, 693cc engine
The QJ SRK 700 will draw power from a 693cc, parallel-twin engine that should generate 76.04hp of maximum power. However, information related to the gearbox and torque output is yet to be revealed.
Safety: Disc brakes on both wheels shall ensure safety
To ensure the safety of the rider, the QJ SRK 700 shall be equipped with Brembo disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. ABS for better handling on roads should also be available.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle will be taken care of by Marzocchi forks on the front side and probably a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Fact: QJ SRK 700: Availability
The QJ SRK 700 should make its debut soon and is also expected to be launched as a re-badged Benelli by the end of 2021. It is also likely to make its way to India by 2022.
