The second image makes it pretty close to certain.
T. melanoptera has the inside of the hind femur almost always dominated by black.

Moved from ID Request.

It appears to be Trimerotropis latifasciata
Seeing the wings helps a lot with these but the only other species it is likely to be is T. melanoptera, which generally has the head a bit larger and more red on the abdomen.
