    Cool AJP PR7 Adventure Bike (with full specifications, and video!)

    This bike is coming to the U.S. soon as a fully legal adventure bike! I can't wait. I'm working on saving for my next bike, so that when my DR200 finally caves, I'll have something to put down on the next new purchase. This bike could actually be quite a serious contender for my money! By the time I get around to being in the market for my next bike, it will likely have been around in the U.S. for a year or so.

    I'm not sure if all the official specs were out last time I made a post here on this model. Anyway, they are now! It's looking seriously promising!

    Compared with the DR650 (one of my current favorites in "my version" of the adventure bike category), the PR7 offers several big advantages:

    *EFI!!!

    *Basically the same weight...but better mass centralization.

    *Comes stock with a skid plate, proper aluminium handlebars, and hand guards (I think...final production version could differ)

    *greater fuel capacity (4.5 gallons, versus 3.2 for the DR)

    *Suspension is high quality and fully adjustable, with much more travel (12 inches of it!)...should be light-years better than the stock DR 650 stuff!

    *13 inches of ground clearance (3 inches more than the DR650, even though the seat is only 1 inch higher)

    *Better chassis and ergonomics for off road riding

    *six speed transmission

    *a bit more horsepower (although I don't really care about this, as the DR has plenty, to be honest)


    This is a pretty significant list of advantages, considering how much I love the DR650! It does have about an inch taller seat height, but IMO, 36 inches is still manageable - not 38 inches like the KTM's. Plus, I've been getting a lot more comfortable on taller bikes lately - you just have to ride them a little differently.

    Based on what I know of the engine's origins and such-like, I think it should be reasonable. Probably not quite as durable as a DR, and will require a little more maintenance (but nothing outrageous)...only time can say for sure. I'm so stoked on this model though, especially since there is some chance that I might own one in the future, if the whole project doesn't flop or whatever, anyway.

    Looks like a great bike!
    Probably going to cost about the same as the KTM/Husky though and that will really hurt sales.
    Keep us posted if you get one.

    Well at least it's not another rebranded Chinese thing like the CSC bikes.

    12.4:1 CR... that means super unleaded will be mandatory.

    36" seat height is too much for me by a longshot. Thankfully you're quite a bit taller.

    We'll see how the rest of it works out. If the price is competitive, as in considerably cheaper than the DR650, I'd say it's a good deal.

    Based on what it is, and based on other AJP offerings, I think it will be around $8,500, +/- $500. I would definitely pay that price for it (if I could...), but we will see.
    KJ, just KJ, ok.

    Well, a DR 650, built the way I'd want it, would run close to ten grand anyway. I'm pretty sure this bike will be a fair bit less than that.

    I think you're right about it needing premium fuel. I would rather have something that uses 87. Not a deal breaker for me, though (I'll carry fuel octane booster for those times when premium isn't available).

    In these times it' is all connected...

    AJP (Portugese company) uses the 250cc Zongshen engine (designed by an Italian company) in their PR 5.

    AJP gets the new 600 cc engine from SWM, an Italian company....financed by massive investments from whom?

    ......the Shinray Group, a Chinese company....

    .....and where did SWM get the engine...

    "The new SWM SuperDual has more than just a passing resemblance to the 2012 Husqvarna TE630. Underneath the new bodywork is the same water-cooled and fuel-injected 600cc DOHC single pumping out roughly 50 horsepower, with a wide-ratio 6-speed to match — the same motor to be used in the new AJP PR7. "

    The SWM Superdual looks pretty nice, too. And my new favorite (minus the price) is the CCM GP450. Both near the top of my list with the PR7.

    I sure hope the 600cc enduro is street legal in the USA. Hell, Yamaha won't bring the Tenere 660cc to the USA so there needs to be a pioneer. I've had a BMW F650GS and it would do over a 100mph indicated. That BMW never got lower than 61mpg and as high as 71.5mpg. This is the whole time I owned it. Adventure riders of today want big fuel capacity, high mpg' s and comfort...
