In June 2020, we brought you the very first low-resolution image of the QJ350 model from the Chinese firm Xinjiang, saying that the 350cc twins that entered Harley-Davidson’s project might have been the basis. High-resolution photos of the same motorcycle have now surfaced in front of the Chinese patent office, revealing that the planned Harley is wearing a different, KJ motor bodywork. Even the words “Harley-Davidson Motor Company” are used in left-handed engines if any doubt remains. Mechanically, the Chinese Harley-Davidson HD350 will be like the machine that will share the same components with the future Benelli 352S, which is expected to replace the current 300cc Benelli 302S model.
When Harley originally announced Chinese cooperation last year, the firm said it would have a small twin 338cc, including a 45.2mm stroke crankshaft with a Benelli 300cc engine, in a 500-cylinder Combined with CC unit and piston. However, because of its 353 cc capacity of 69 mm bore, it has been reconsidered and significantly redesigned. The same documents also state that the engine produces 36 HP, and this motorcycle weighs 388 pounds (176 kg) wet. The Harley version may consider a little different because of the change in style, but not more, which is why the firm has built the lightest machine for sale over the years.
Although Chinese-branded QJ Motor and Euro-based Benelli versions are expected to be released soon, Harley-Davidson has balanced the fate of the branded derivative. The development of the motorcycle has resulted in a diverse project developed by former Harley CEO Matt Levatich, which has helped the company’s customers move from ordinary air-cooled, V-twin cruisers to new markets and segments. The hope is to bring this little parallel twin not to ride in the West but to spread Harley’s name to consumers in developing markets in Asia. Installing a low-cost Harley on these areas, as its riders get more affluent, will provide a step-by-step approach to the firm’s more luxurious offer.
However, Levatich is no longer running Harley, and in his place, Joachim Zeitz is leaving behind some elements of his plans. Announcing Harley’s net loss of 92 92 million in 2020 COVID-affected Q2, Zeitz confirmed that he plans to revise Harley’s future – Dubbed Hardware in the fourth quarter of this year. I have announced the fish. We will do it in a month. In the same revenue presentation, he said that the Pan American Adventure Tour 2021 is yet to be launched, but it has confirmed none other machine expected in 2021, such as the Bronx Street Fighter or 1,250 ccs high performance. He also confirmed that the 2020 model year is being extended, leaving behind the launch of 2021 machines by the beginning of next year. Implementing the five-year hardware strategy is expected to begin by the end of 2020.
Zeitz said: “We see strong potential in adventure touring, and next year we will launch Pan American globally. We will enter the market with a better launching process starting from the model launch ’21 ‘. Launching and advancing our product at the start of the riding season and driving sales demand for dealers. As we move ahead this year, we have announced our 2020 model year. Has arrived, and I expect this model to come in early 2021—dealer showrooms.
However, Zeitz’s review casts doubt on China’s partnership. When asked about the small homeless motorcycle during Harley’s earnings offer, he denied the question: “We would like to show our product very close to the actual launch. And when we launch a specific product, Well, that’s not what I want to go into right now. We’ll go into more detail in the fourth quarter.
However, the investor relations documents from the latest presentation still list the company’s ability to maintain and maintain productive relationships with the company “Zhaoping Motorcycle Co., Ltd.” And we can introduce related products on time. “Results
