    Images of the PR7 from Portugese manufacturer AJP have been floating around the internet for a little while now, but the bike is now coming at least to Austraila at the end of 2015, will we get it in NZ?

    Using the Yamaha Tenere (Minarelli) 660 motor wrapped in a AJP’s tasty own body and suspension package the AJP PR7 has a claimed weight of less than 155kg dry while being able to carry 17 litres of fuel which should give a perfect range for Adventure / Dual Sport riding in New Zealand.

    The Australian AJP website is at: http://www.ajpaustralia.com.au/

    Specs

    •Mikuni EFI
    •Well recognised and highly regarded Minarelli 660cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, engine
    •Fully adjustable Marzocchi 48mm forks, 300mm of travel
    •Fully adjustable Ohlins shock with 280mm of travel
    •Less than 155kg dry weight
    •21 inch and 18 inch wheel set
    •17 litre under seat fuel cell for low weight distribution
    •Doma high performance pipe

    Looks damn good and there is a lot of talk about this bike on ADV. Will be interesting to see if it makes it to NZ.

    Like anything, the smaller manufacturers make bloody awesome bikes! Sherco, Beta, aprilia etc etc….
    BUT….
    Seems we are too far away and even if you get your hands on one of these beauties….
    As far as after sales service goes….
    Nada! That is the problem….

    There’s an AJP dealer in Darfield, Canterbury. The real question is do kiwi’s have 18,000nzd to spend on the bike new. It’s worth it when comparing to KTM 690e, Husky 701 (if they do an enduro version), and the CCM gp450.

    So, this might be my next bike. (And not only because I’m Portuguese)
    I contacted the AJP Guys, and the Importer is actua;y in South Auckland.
    There is no Stock for PR7 because the bike is still in prototype.
    And the guys says that although they have some P5’s it is unlikely they will order some PR7 if they only see 1 or 2 possible sales. :S

    New updates on the PR7

    PORTUGUESE off-road manufacturer AJP has just announced its newest model – the PR7, but it won’t be available in the UK until September 2016.

    The PR7 was first shown as a prototype in Cologne last year. AJP describes it as an adventure tourer with an off-road bike at its core. It says this production version is light, compact, agile and comfortable, capable of carrying luggage and covering distance.

    It’s powered by a 600cc single-cylinder, four-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine made by SWM, not the 658cc single-cylinder Minarelli that was in the prototype.

    The bike is built around an aluminium and steel frame. At the front is a fully adjustable fork with 300mm of travel. The prototype had a Marzocchi fork and although the spec for this bike lists no further information on the fork, we’re told that it’s likely to be made by Sachs. The piggyback rear shock is also made by Sachs.

    Stopping at the front is handled by a two-piston caliper and 300mm disc, with the rear getting a single piston caliper and 240mm disc.

    The fuel tank holds 17 litres and the PR7’s claimed wet weight is 165kg.

    The price is likely to be around €10,000 when it goes on sale next year.

    There’s are a few AJP dealers in New Zealand, if you want to see the PR7 here these are the people you want to hassle … talk to.

    This update is interesting…but at 18,000nzd (if that’s the out the door price) is more than the 701Enduro which has more available parts and service support. It’s an interesting concept and I’d be keen to see one. I don’t buy bikes in this price range, and not many kiwis do or can. But if someone buys one I’d love to check it out against other new bikes I can’t afford 🙂

    AJP Announces Final Version of the PR7

    After one year of development, AJP is now ready to show the final version of the most expected PR7.

    The new model we are launching at EICMA keeps all the core values of the first prototype presented one year ago at Intermot, but AJP decided to take some features to a new level, creating one of the most exciting models of the last years for all trail lovers and real off road bikes users. The trail segment is still one of the most dynamic in the motorcycle industry, with all major manufacturers being present with many options available.

    Despite all of the research and development, resulting in a sustainable growth of the category, the roots of the trail philosophy have been forgotten. The market is dominated by increasing performance, complex technology, high weight and less off road potential. This is how the trail segment has evolved, with bikes more and more oriented for use on the highway, extremely comfortable and effective on the road, but unable to perform on the dirt.

    AJP is, from the very first day, a brand with off road on its veins and any new model must follow the roots, even if we are entering a very important segment and fighting with all the big names of the industry. The PR7 it’s easy to define: a real off road bike, light, compact, agile, but comfortable, capable of a good mileage and designed to carry luggage.

    From the first prototype we kept the new generation of the proved hybrid frame made of aluminum and steel, now even lighter, compact and rigid, using two lightweight twin spars bolted to the compact steering head that is used also as an oil reservoir. The AJP PR7 is equipped with top suspensions, showing a massive inverted front fork with full adjustability, 48mm inner tubes and a generous stroke of 300mm. That’s why we say this is a real off road bike bike with real dirt heritage.

    On the rear, the cast aluminum swinging arm is another trademark of the brand and the progressive linkage takes full advantage of the piggyback fully adjustable rear shock, capable of 280mm of travel. Brakes are well dimensioned with a 300mm front disc operated by a two piston caliper, and a 240mm rear rotor, allowing for a good power on the tarmac, ease of use and a great feel on the dirt.

    Overall dimensions are compact and everybody knows how important is to have a bike where you feel at home when riding on your foot. This is possible because like in all other AJP models, the fuel tank is located under the seat, creating a narrow line but also mass centralization and not reducing the tank capacity, with a total of 17 liters of the precious liquid. A change from the first prototype is the location of the fuel cap, now in front of the seat.

    Weight will be 165kg with full tank and all fluids included, on a bike designed to conquer mountains or deserts all over the world, using the traditional wheels of a mid-size trail (90/90-21 and 140/80-18 tires, front and rear respectively), built with the very best materials in terms of spokes, rims and hubs, because we want all future adventurers to ride on all kinds of terrain, with no fears or limitations.

    ENGINE

    The biggest change from the first prototype is the new 600cc single cylinder produced by SWM.

    This is a compact, light and modern unit, perfect to fit in the philosophy of the model, but also a great option if you consider that it is equipped with balancer shaft (low vibration) and a six speed gearbox, allowing for the perfect exploration of the strong but smooth power produced by the liquid cooled single cylinder, with double overhead camshaft and four valves. The bore and stroke ratio is not radical and you can expect good torque on low and middle rpm from the 100 x 76,4 mm unit, fed by a modern fuel injection system with a 45 mm throttle body.

    Experienced users know that there is nothing like a single to ride on the dirt, a predictable engine with small dimensions and immediate response from the smallest throttle opening, but with this unit, there is also room for traveling on the road with smoothness and enough power to cruise on the highway.
