QJ Motor Unveils The Flash 500 Cruiser

Published On Jan 26, 2022 By at Zigwheels.com

The company has also revealed design sketches of the bigger-engined Flash 700 Cruiser 

QJMotor recently launched the Flash 300S cruiser in China, and long with that, also unveiled the Flash 500 and the design sketches of the Flash 700. 

The Flash 500’s design and paint scheme look more or less the same as its smaller sibling, the Flash 300S. Overall, its styling is reminiscent of the Kawasaki Vulcan S, and it appears relatively more laidback than its sportier sibling, the SRV500 cruiser. While there's no word on the powertrain details, it will likely be powered by the same heart as the SRV500: a 500cc parallel twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that produces 48.9PS and 40Nm. 

The bike features an LED headlight and taillight, a tear-drop-shaped fuel tank, a split-type seat, and an underbelly exhaust. 

The ride of the bike is taken care of by a front telescopic fork and a rear monoshock. For braking, the Flash 500 uses disc brakes at both ends with a front axial calliper. 

QJMotor will offer the Flash 500 in six colours and two variants: Belt Drive and Chain Drive. 

At the end of the event, QJMotor revealed a sketch of another cruiser bike with the tag 'Shan 700'. The company didn't give anything else away but said it would take inputs from journalists and bike enthusiasts while designing the motorcycle. From the sketch, the Flash 700 looks similar to the Flash 500, and it, as the name suggests, will likely be powered by a bigger 700cc parallel-twin engine.

The Flash 500 is unlikely to be launched in India, but you can take a look at the more modern looking Benelli 502C if you’re in the market for a 500cc cruiser.
