The QJ Motor SRT 500 has a cleaner design than the busy and somewhat cluttered design of the TRK 502

0 Comments

The visible change in the QJ Motor SRT500 from the Benelli TRK502 is the styling. The SRT500 sports a relatively clean design, compared to the cluttered front beak and slightly complicated creases, angles and curves on the bodywork of the Benelli TRK502. Although dimensions are more or less likely to be similar to the TRK 502, the QJ Motor SRT 500 wears a slightly slimmer look, and it's also expected to be lighter than the 225 kg kerb weight of the TRK 502. The other important change is a slight bump in power, up from 47 bhp on the Benelli to 48 bhp on the QJ Motor 500 cc adventure bike.
