QJ Motor is a Chinese colossus that produces millions of motorcycles every year and is the owner, among others, of Benelli, which thanks to large investments from overseas has allowed with the help of the Pesaro development and design center of produce highly successful motorcycles like the Leoncino and the TRK, queen of sales in Italy for the past two years.
However, some bikes in the range are produced directly in China, such as the Tornado that you see in the photo above, a sports bike powered by a newly developed 400 cc parallel twin, capable of delivering 48 HP. The most attentive will remember the patent applications that we reported to you last summer, which depicted a model that now mirrors the Tornado 402.
At the chassis level we find a truly premium technical equipment, among which the single-sided rear swingarm stands out, a solution present on the most refined sports bikes. The frame is a steel trellis structure, with upside-down forks and central rear shock absorber signed by Marzocchi. The braking system is supplied by Nissin and offers two 300mm discs at the front and one 250mm disc at the rear, with ABS in series.
Being intended mainly for the Asian market (soon, however, it will also arrive in Europe) there are some typically Chinese features, such as the camera integrated in the front.
