QJ Motor SRT 600 Ready for Europe in 2024?

The QJ Motor SRT 600 is set to arrive in Europe later this year, according to patent documents filed by the Chinese manufacturer

QJ Motor is expected to expand its middleweight roster in 2024, with the arrival of the new QJ Motor SRT 600.

The SRT 600 will arrive this year, according to type approval documents reported by Cycle World. 

The documents show the SRT 600 as a middleweight touring motorcycle that would come in to replace the existing SRT 550, which itself was an enlargement of the previous SRT 500.

A 554cc twin-cylinder engine will sit at the heart of the SRT 600, so don’t get excited about the number featured in the name - this isn't a 600cc supersport machine. Instead, the engine is the same as the one used by the 550, and even in the new Benelli TRK 552. But, despite the retention of the engine, the power is increased from the 47bhp of the SRT 550 to 60bhp, which is equal to that found in the sportier SRK 550 models. The weight of the SRT 600 is reduced compared to the 550 to 220kg.

Brembo-supplied radially mounted callipers are also in the specification, and there are four different variants of the SRT 600 detailed by QJ, with two higher-end versions with additional luggage capacity and crash protection, and two lower-end (and probably lower-priced) versions. A choice of spoked and cast wheels is available whichever variant is chosen.

Aesthetics are also changed compared to the SRT 550, with a new beakless design that strays somewhat from the norm of contemporary adventure touring.

QJ Motor hasn’t announced the bike officially yet, so there is no official confirmation on when it could arrive in dealers.
