Harley’s cheapest new bike X350, now available in China from ¥33,388
Do you recall a few months ago when Harley-Davidson unveiled two new motorcycles that appeared in the catalog released by MIIT, a 350cc and a 500cc, which garnered immense attention from motorcycle enthusiasts? Today, the entry-level retro street bike X350, resulting from the first collaboration between QJMOTOR and Harley, has been officially launched.
As we know, the Harley X350 is based on the QJMOTOR SRK350, yet the two bikes are poles apart in terms of style. Unlike traditional street bikes, the X350 does not adopt a trendy sports look but instead opts for the classic XR750 Flat Tracker style. The orange paint and tail shape, inspired by the legendary racing bike XR750 under the Harley brand, bestow it with a distinct Harley flair.
The round headlight features the iconic “Harley-Davidson” logo, while the round instrument panel boasts a retro design with a simple and minimalist overall appearance. The one-piece leather seat is crafted to be relatively flat, complemented by mid-mounted foot controls and lower handlebars for a comfortable riding experience.
Under the hood, the X350 packs a straight twin-cylinder water-cooled engine with an actual displacement of 353cc. Standard features include a slipper clutch and the ability to generate a maximum power of 27kW and a maximum torque of 31N.m. As for configuration, it comes equipped with inverted front forks, BOSCH ABS, full-vehicle LED light sources, and 120/70-17 front and 160/60-17 rear tires.
The release of the X350 may provide a new option for many Harley enthusiasts who were previously deterred by the high prices. As the first domestically produced Harley model, has the X350 managed to impress you?
