AJP is ready to show the eagerly anticipated PR7.
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.
The new model keeps all the core values of the first prototype and AJP have decided to take some features to a new level, creating one of the most exciting motorcycles for all trail lovers and real off road bikes users.
From the first prototype we have kept the proved hybrid frame made of aluminium 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. This is possible because like in all other AJP models, the fuel tank is located under the seat, creating a narrow line and mass centralisation without reducing the tank capacity. The fuel cap is in front of the seat.
Weight will be 148kg dry, or around 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" front and 140/80-18" rear tyres). Spokes, rims and hubs are built with the very best materials because we want all future adventurers to ride on all kinds of terrain, with no fears or limitations.
The PR7 introduces the new 600cc single cylinder engine.
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 100.0 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 travelling on the road smoothly and enough power to cruise on the highway.
This is a market changing machine, make sure you are ready!
