This thing is supposedly being shown to the public today...



Is that a 660 mill I spy in there?

Quite curious about this model aim.
Will it be a light adventure bike in consolidation?
Let´s see...

This is a prototype from AJP, using the engine of the Yamaha Ténéré 660.

They are doing their best to go from prototype to production bike, keeping the weight to a max of 180 kgs (all fluids included).

I hope this motorcyle reaches production, but a bit more horse power would be welcomed to that 660 engine

Oh! Yes please! Now shut up and take my money!







But I'm in Komiforniastan. It'll never get past the smog nazis. Not that it can't pass the test. Its the couple of hundred grand it takes to get it tested...

Yep, a US distributor that spams every conceivable search term in our local CL ads.

I thought there might be a thread about this already...

I can confirm the thing is real, and not just a photoshop/studio mock up:



As others have alluded to, it will have the 660cc single from the Yamaha XT660 (R, X and Z Tenere) - whether they can get that through Cali-smog tests who knows, but it meets/passes all the current Euro smog tests*

Looking at the design (alloy spar frame and plastic seat subframe/tank), I would have thought it should certainly come in at 180Kg or less - the 660Z Tenere is that weight with a huge one-piece steel frame and 8Kg exhaust...

Interesting indeed!

Jx

*Note. there is a rumour that the 660 engine won't meet the forthcoming Euro 5 regs, which is why it's being pensioned off to AJP and Yamaha are planning a mid-sizes ADV bike around the parallel twin MT07 engine architecture... although I'm sure AJP would only be interested in buying it in if they could continue to sell it as street-legal too?

Is that the distributer or dealer?

Our local Cristini dealer does the same thing, he's a buddy of mine so I should probably give him some advice on how that is poor form.

Either way, the AJP US website is made to 1998 standards which is going to be nothing but a disservice in their attempt to carve out a market share.

Their social media presence on the other hand isn't that bad, here is what they have to say

Check out the new AJP PR7 prototype now on display at the Intermot show in Germany. It's a Yamaha 660cc EFI motor wrapped in AJP's latest chassis design allowing a fuel tank under the seat, high mounted air intake, hi-end suspensions front & rear, plus rally tower with road book and high Dakar style windscreen. Cool!!!!

looks like the pa dealer then, not the importer/distributer.

Motorcycle dealers of all kinds seem to totally miss the concept of marketing on the web.

Apparantly it'll be ready for production somewhere next year and they're aiming at a ( I guess dry) weight of 155 Kgs.

Cheers, Ard





Look at their Facebook page "AJP motos" if you understand Portugese.
