If there's a 23 to 35 HP non-restricted upgrade, used "X350RA" trainers may be quite the bargain. Buy an extra for parts?  ??? ;D

What if QJ just buys out "The Motor Company"? It's not like HD is interested in building real-world hardware anymore. A 550 pound, 150 HP trail bike? A $30K, 560 pound, 100 mile-range-if-nursed-along electric bike? Shineray, another Chinese concern,  apparently has a big twin in production already. Between them and QJ you'd have a REAL motorcycle lineup. The HD Board would certainly peddle it all for the right $$$ number. When the next recession comes along and recreational vehicle sales crash, that number will get a lot lower.

SSR sell Benelli as well as the new QJ franchise. I asked SSR this about QJ: Is there an ETA on the new QJ vehicles? Any idea on the expected list for the QJ SRV550 and SRV300? The Leoncino TRAIL lists at MSRP $7,200, the Leoncino for $6,800. Will these prices be dropping now that QJ is importing the same engine in a 550 version?

They answered: "Thank you for your interest and you may follow us on facebook for the latest news about QJ motorcycles."

Sounds like they're still ironing it out.

The Benelli Leoncino Trail lists for about $7,200. The very similar QJ SRV550 is suggested at $7,300. I guess they are serious about selling these at roughly $1,500 more than the RE 650s. For a machine that isn't significantly better on a jeep road than an Interceptor with DP tires that's nuts. HP, weight, transmission, all too close to call. I'm sure not seeing a reason for a $1,500 premium. That leoncino IS pretty though.
