2017 AJP PR7 Adventure Bike Teased In New Video

AJP released this teaser video today of its latest model, the PR7, a 600cc Adventure model slated to be released in September 2016 as a 2017 model. For those unfamiliar with AJP, the company was founded circa 1987 in Portugal by Antonio J. Pinto, a seven-time Portuguese National Enduro champion. The company has had extensive off-road racing success, having won the Portuguese National Enduro championship from 1996-2000 and the Portuguese National Off-Road series in 1996, 1997, and 2000.

The PR7 is powered by a 600cc, DOHC, four-stroke Single with four valves, fuel injection and a balance shaft to help reduce vibration. The engine is manufactured by SWM and mated to a six-speed transmission. AJP says front fork is 48mm with 11.8 inches of travel, and the rear monoshock is a Sachs unit with full adjustability and 11 inches of travel. A single 300mm disc sits up front, mated to a twin-piston caliper. A single-piston caliper and 240mm disc rests out back. See the teaser video below:

AJP’s goal for the PR7 is to have an off-road bike that’s capable in the dirt, but also comfortable and efficient with fuel. The PR7 is said to have a wet weight of 363 lbs.

Three models are currently available – the PR3, PR4, and PR5R – the first two powered by a 233cc four-stroke Single, while the PR5 is equipped with a 250cc fuel-injected four-stroke Single and six-speed transmission. You can find more details about each model in Tom Roderick’s overview of each bike here.
