 Do we see a brand new 500cc sportbike from QJ Motor?

The new spy shot of the QJMotor 500cc sportbike reveals that the company will be taking a detour from fully-faired motorcycles and move towards another new segment in the entry-level market

The bike in question is expected to adopt an all-new 500cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine sourced from Leoncino 500, although nothing is official. 

500cc Sportbike?

The 500cc engine will make 47.5 PS at 8500 rpm and 46 Nm at 6000 rpm if it does happen.

A few things to notice on the bike are the two transparent panels between the headlights and fairing. They look similar to wind deflectors, but it’s difficult to say what they could be for since there’s no windscreen. 

The beak-type design of the front fairing is something new from QJMotor has done so far with its 500cc bikes.

While most of them have carried a split headlamp design, the new bike seems to have opted for a conventional twin-eye setup.

We could also see the QJ Motor logo near the fuel tank. The motorbike has been created to give a sporty ride. 

This one is not for leisure riding. The first few photos from the spy lens and this one has us intrigued. It is said to be a perfect looking bike when compared to its rivals.

The motorcycle, as seen in the image, has a low seat height. Unlike any other sports bike, the seats arrive as split seats. There are no grab rails. The front looks sharp, and the rear is tidy and sleek.

On the front, we see the USD forks while the opposite end has mono shocks. As for the brakes, we see a single rotor at the rear and a twin on the front.

Will QJ Motor source the engine from the current Leoncino 500 or source the current higher displacement 549cc engine under development. It again is still a question because the bike is production-ready.

The additional displacement comes with a 3.4 hp increase in the output figure. 

It does mean the new 549cc engine will make close to 51 hp and may compete against the Kawasaki Ninja 400, which makes 49 PS @ 10000 rpm.

The bike looks production-ready, and we expect to see it soon on the roads.
