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.

    This thing looks the business. Never heard of AJP, but this is what alot of people on ADV forums have been asking for for a long time. Sort of like a modernized KLR.

      The KTM 690 Enduro R is no good?

    From the company’s website, the PR7 is described as a more trail oriented machine than the competition. In other words, it won’t do well at all on the highway, and that’s on purpose. It may be great for a Dakar rally, who knows.

    A second thing to keep in mind is that the engine is SWM. Now, if you care to research it, SWM is just the name of the old company that folded in 1984. The brand is now owned by a Chinese company, that also owns the old Husqvarna factory in Varese, prior to the sale to KTM. They also kept the engineers, 10 BMW Huskys and apparently the technology to manufacture BMW-husky frames.

    SWM also have plans for a 650 offering in July.

    Long story short, the engine here present may be made in Varese but is most likely made in China.

    Or the Suzuki DR650? Of if you really want agility there’s CCM’s GP450 Adventure, which weighs around 280lbs, and has a set height range from 790-950mm. Someone who rode heavy tourer across the US did it again linking as many dirt roads as possible on this bike, stopping in motels each night. He could keep going many times when his friend got stopped or fell off his heavier bike. Don’t know if they are still friends.
