AJP, the Portuguese off-road specialist, presented at Intermot itís new prototype, the PR7. This new model creates a market niche that AJP believes itís still not explored. The trail segment has been one of the most dynamic in the last years, not only in terms of sales growth, but also because the number of models developed and launched in a recent past by the major manufacturers confirmed that the motorcycle community is open to new proposals.

Aware of this market evolution, AJP decided that itís new model should gather the best of both worlds, giving the travelers and adventurers an alternative that represents all the DNA and know-how of the brand in off-road, a bike capable of a great handling and riding pleasure in the toughest terrains, but also able to provide comfort, good mileage and versatility.

This is possible because AJP developed for the PR7 the new generation 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. With 1532 mm of wheelbase, 300 mm of ground clearance and 26,5 degrees of rake, the AJP PR7 is a must in terms of suspension, showing a sturdy Marzocchi inverted front fork with full adjustability, 48 mm inner tubes and a generous stroke of 300 mm. Thatís why we say this is a real trail bike with real off-road heritage. On the rear, the cast aluminium swinging arm is another trademark of the brand and itís progressive linkage takes full advantage of the piggy-back rear Ohlins shock, giving 280 mm of travel to the axel. Brakes are well dimensioned with a 300 mm front disc operated by a two piston caliper, and a 240 mm rear rotor, allowing for a good power on the tarmac, but specially 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 but also mass centralization and not reducing the tank capacity, with a total of 17 liters of fuel. The fuel cap will be located under the seat.

Estimated dry weight will be under 155 kg, 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 and 140/80-18 tires, front and rear respectively), built with the very best materials in terms of spokes, rims and hubs.

The engine used to power the PR7 is the proved Minarelli single cylinder four stroke with a capacity of 659,7cc, liquid cooled and electronic fuel injection via a 44mm Mikuni throttle body. Peak power of 48hp is obtained @ 6000rpm and with 58Nm of torque @ 5500rpm - this is a power unit capable of good acceleration from low to middle rpm, an immediate punch that transforms all obstacles into amusement but without compromising traction or the overall balance of the bike.
