The Harley-Davidson X350 is the company’s smallest and most affordable motorcycle, with a 350cc parallel-twin engine designed by QJ Motor.
The Harley-Davidson X350 is the company’s most affordable motorcycle in China. The 350 cc motorcycle has been priced at 33,000 Yuan (around Rs 3.93 lakh). The new motorcycle was created in collaboration with the Chinese company QJ Motors. It should be noted that QJ Motors owns Benelli, which already sells motorcycles in the Indian market.
Availability of Harley-Davidson X350
At the moment, the newly launched Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle will be available only in China. However, if this motorcycle is successful in China, the company may launch it in other emerging markets such as India, Thailand, Brazil, and others.

The Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle’s affordability is one of its main selling points. In fact, the Harley-Davidson X350 is the world’s most affordable Harley-Davidson motorcycle, costing only Yuan 33,388. (Rs 3.93 Lakh, Approximately).
Harley-Davidson X350 Specs
The new Harley-Davidson X350 is powered by a 353cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine with 34bhp and 31Nm of peak torque. Furthermore, this powertrain is paired with a 6-speed transmission and transfers power to the rear wheels via a chain-drive system rather than the belt-drive system found on traditional Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
It’s also worth noting that the new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle shares its powertrain with the QJ Motors SRK 350. Purists will miss the V-twin engine that has powered Harley-Davidson motorcycles since 1911.
The new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle appears to be inspired by American flat trackers in terms of design. In addition, the new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle is available in three different colour options in China, including Joyful Orange, Shining Silver, and Shadow Black.
The new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle is very well-equipped, with high-quality hardware such as 41mm USD forks up front, an off-set mono-shock up back, a trellis frame, twin floating disc brakes up front with 4-piston callipers, and much more.
Furthermore, the new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle has 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends that are shod with a 120/70 tyre in front and a wider 160/60 tyre in back. The fuel tank capacity of 13.5 litres appears to be adequate for a motorcycle in this class.
Though the Harley-Davidson X350 is currently the most affordable Harley-Davidson motorcycle, it is highly unlikely that the model will be released outside of China anytime soon. Having said that, the new Harley-Davidson X350 motorcycle is more similar to the QJ Motors SRK 350 motorcycle than to any other Harley-Davidson.
