Harley-Davidson X350 And X500 Leaked Before Its Launch
It has long been known that venerable American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson is working with Chinese automotive behemoth Qianjiang Motorcycle to build a number of new easily accessible, low-capacity versions. The smaller product of this partnership, the X350, has now been completely unveiled ahead of its official Chinese debut on March 10.
While the Harley-Davidson X350 is the model seen above, there will also be a bigger X500 with, as its name implies, a larger parallel-twin engine. The major difference between these two motorbikes is the lack of a V-Twin engine, which has been a feature of almost all Harley-Davidson motorcycles since 1903. The liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine in these new motorcycles will displace about as much as the name of the bike. Power outputs are still unknown, however, if QJMotor’s earlier motorcycles of comparable size are any indication, the X350 should produce between 30- and 35 horsepower, while the X500, which is bigger, should produce closer to 50 horsepower.
A Harley-design Davidson’s language is an important component, and both bikes have a neo-retro roadster style that is somewhat reminiscent of the previous XR1200. All-LED lighting, a USD fork/offset mono-shock setup, and disc brakes on both ends are seen on both bikes.
A straightforward analog speedometer with a little digital inlay might provide a signal about the business’s attempts to keep expenses down. Given that these motorcycles would be at the accessible end of the market, it is doubtful that they will come with any more riding aids outside ABS. Both motorcycles have been added to Harley’s worldwide line-up, so they could eventually be offered abroad as well. In India, however, Hero MotoCorp and Harley-Davidson will jointly build the bikes.
