    Street legal Portuguese 250 Enduro and 700 Adventure bikes coming to U.S. in 2017!

    Scouring the internet almost every day, reading up on all things motorcycle on a near-constant basis, I have no idea how AJP motorcycles has eluded me until now! But what I have learned about their motorcycles so far is very very promising. Reliable (from what I can tell so far) water cooled, fuel injected engine (in the PR5), six speed transmission, light weight, great suspension, under seat fuel tank for mass centralization, and soon-to-be 50 state street legal! The PR5 is a 250, the Pr7 is ~700 cc. I have been informed by an AJP rep that both the PR7 and PR5 should be available in all 50 states as factory street legal Adventure/Enduro bikes (respectively) in 2017. He also said they MIGHT have a 50 state PR5 for 2016. These are serious TRAIL bikes that really seem to have pretty much everything the typical serious American trail warrior wants in a great dirt bike.

My only real questions would be reliability, durability, and ease of maintenance. And again, from what I can tell, those aspects of their bikes should be pretty good. If extensive additional research into those aspects returned very positive results, I might ACTUALLY seriously look at buying one of these in 2017 as my next bike! Of course I'm getting way ahead of myself here, as five minutes of reading could potentially kill that excitement if I find stupid common problems. I just can't help myself These things look awesome!


    On a side note, one thing that bugs the crap out of me is people calling OIL COOLED bikes air cooled. The 3 and 4 have factory oil coolers, which I think is totally cool. Also I haven't figured out definitively yet, but I think the 3 and 4 might be using basically Honda XR200 engines.

    Amazing features for the price on all their models. I would like a demo ride if we ever get west coast distributors. Half the price of the Beta I had drooled over.

    Sweet machines. The PR7 looks very interesting. 18 lbs heavier than a DR650 dry but with the gas tank under the seat and better suspension it should handle much better but would have to prove itself to be reliable before I would consider buying one.
    It would be nice to demo ride one though.

    Yet another small displacement dual sport. Wonder if the motor is made by Zhongshen? The best part being
    that if sales of this and the RX3 succeed, then the big guns will pay attention.

    250 has KTM prices. Nice looking, but outta my price range. Interesting though.
