Will come with both alloy wheel and spoke wheel options 

  • Benelli’s parent company has revealed the QJMotor SRG 750 adventure bike.
  • The two motorcycles are likely to share mechanicals and styling bits.
  • Luggage solutions will be offered as an optional accessory.
  • Expect the pricing to start from around Rs 10 lakh.

Benelli has been steadily growing its portfolio applying almost a similar formula to what Bajaj and KTM does with their bikes: one engine in multiple formats. We have seen this with the 500s and the 250s with each engine spawning at least a Leoncino and a TRK. Benelli has already shown us the Leoncino 800 and is planning to reveal the TRK 800 soon. The Italian firm’s parent company though has shown us what shape future Benelli models will take as the QJMotor SRG 750 to be sold as the TRK 800 in global markets.

QJMotors has revealed a number of variants of the SRG 750 with major differences being in the wheels used, the suspension bits or the braking hardware. Here’s a small table that showcases the various trims of the adventure bike:

There seems to be some form of mish mash going on with the components here as the top-spec road version and the entry-level off-road version seem to have the same swingarm but different wheels and brakes. Likewise, you can find the differences in the four trims.

Proper aluminium panniers are likely to also be offered on all four trims but these will be optional fitments. 

Regardless of what trim(s) India receives, the 754cc parallel-twin motor will remain constant. It is touted to produce around 81.6PS, the same as the Leoncino 800 but slightly more than the 752S naked. The extra power is necessary on the adventure bike as the motor will have to haul 236kg, 10kg more than the naked.

We shall have to wait for a while before we see new Benellis arrive on our shores as the Italian brand plans to first introduce the 500cc models. New motorcycles, like the Leoncino 800 and the TRK 800, will arrive sometime around mid- to late-2021.
