New PR7 breaks cover…

After one year of development, AJP is now ready to show the final version of the Portuguese off-road manufacturer's most anticipated model — the PR7. The prototype was shown over a year ago and now AJP has announced the final version of the PR7, which includes some key changes. The new model will be launched at next week's EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

AJP has designed the PR7 for the off-road enthusiasts in the Adventure Touring motorcycle segment. Adventure Motorcycles have been one of the fastest growing segments in the industry for some time now, but manufacturers have focused most of their attention on producing larger models oriented towards highway use. AJP is, and always has been, a brand with dirt in its veins and this newest model stays true to its roots.

 

The PR7 is an off-road bike at its core — light, compact, agile, but also comfortable, capable of good mileage and designed to carry luggage. AJP utilized the same hybrid aluminium and steel frame from their first prototype, now even lighter, more compact and rigid, with twin spars bolted to the steering head that second as an oil reservoir.

The AJP PR7 is equipped with top-shelf suspension components, sporting a massive inverted front fork with full adjustability, stout 48mm internal tubes and a generous 11.8 inches (300mm) of travel. On the rear, the cast aluminium swing arm is a trademark of the brand and the progressive linkage takes full advantage of the fully-adjustable piggyback rear shock, which offers 11.0 inches (280mm) of travel. Brakes are well appointed with a single 300mm front disc operated by a two piston calliper, and a 240mm rear rotor.

Overall dimensions are compact and provide good ergonomics for stand up riding. An under seat tank keeps mass centralized and the bike maintains a narrow profile, while still offering 4.5 gallons (17 litres) of fuel capacity. A change from the first prototype is the location of the fuel cap, now conveniently placed in front of the seat.

 

The prototype's under seat fuel cap has now been relocated in front of the seat.

The weight of the new PR7 with a full tank of fuel and all fluids included is 364 pounds (165kg). The bike rides on traditional off-road wheel sizes (90/90-21 and 140/80-18 tires, front and rear respectively), built with heavy-duty spokes, rims and hubs.

ENGINE

The biggest change from the first prototype is a new 600cc single-cylinder engine produced by Italian manufacturer SWM (the same 600cc single cylinder used in the Husqvarna TE630 until 2013). This is a compact, light and modern unit, a perfect fit for the philosophy of the model, but also a great option for an Adventure Touring bike if you consider that it is equipped with a balance shaft (to reduce vibration) and a six-speed gearbox, allowing for full use of the strong but smooth power produced by the dual overhead cam, four-valve, liquid-cooled single.

 

The AJP PR7 is now powered by a 600cc SWM unit rather than the 660cc Yamaha based unit in the prototype.

The bore and stroke ratio is conventional, producing good torque in the low to middle RPMs, fed by a modern fuel injection system with a 45mm throttle body. Experienced off-road riders will appreciate the torquey single and smaller chassis in the dirt, but the PR7 is also versatile enough to travel comfortably on the highway at speed.

We look forward to learning more about the AJP PR7 after its introduction at EICMA next week. The new bike is expected to be available for sale in September 2016
