The combination of Harley-Davidson and QJ Motor, a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer, has resulted in two products called X350 and X500. It is known that the engine equipped for the Harley-Davidson X350 and X500 is the same as the engines found on the Benelli 302S and Leocino 500.
Therefore, X350 and X500 are undoubtedly the most affordable motorcycles of the American motorcycle brand. The manufacturer said that the X350 of Harley-Davidson will share the platform with the Benelli 302S, while the X500 will share the platform with the Leoncino 500 in China.
Harley-Davidson X350 will be equipped with a twin-cylinder engine, with a displacement of 353cc, and a power output of 36 horsepower. Meanwhile, the X500 will have a 500cc engine with a power output of 47 horsepower. The X350 can reach a maximum speed of 143 km/h, while the 500cc model can reach a maximum speed of 159 km/h.
From the leaked images, the overall design of both bikes features round LED headlights, a crescent-shaped body, integrated seats, and wide handlebars. The bikes have USD front forks, single shock absorbers at the rear, and disc brakes both front and back. Other than the Harley-Davidson emblem and colors, the entire structure is taken from Benelli models.
After their launch, the Harley-Davidson X350 will compete with the Royal Enfield Meteor 350, Honda CB350, and Benelli Imperiale 400. Meanwhile, the X500 will compete with the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 and Benelli 502C.
