Would anyone like to demo an AJP motorcycle?

I am based in the Portland Oregon area and have 2 demo AJP motorcycles. Would like to get interested people on them and get feedback and reactions to them. If so please PM or email me and I'll make it happen.

PR5r - 250cc watercooled, 6 speed, e-start, EFI hill climbing beast.



PR4 - Very cool high spec air/oil cooled, e-start do it all bike for all sizes



Great bikes for technical riding in the PNW

Yabut? Spokane is in Washington. Steve is in Oregon and I'm 20 minutes away from him in Idaho. You could demo 2 states in one day!

Might be able to swing that as I am going to Boise to show them to some dealers. Will post up when that happens.

I might just make a trip to Portland for that. I'm sure my sister wouldn't mind putting me up for a a short visit.

Would like to try both, the bikes look really good for me, would much rather have air cooling if it isn't THAT much less powerful.

AJP is a 27 year old company in Europe (Portugal) that designs and builds a large of the bike including the unique frame and rear tank. Obviously they outscore brakes, suspension, some electronics and such like every other manufacturer. And, as mentioned outsource the motors. These are well tested over many years and they offer a 2 year warranty as they feel strongly about them. Mine has been flawless for 1600 miles and I am not easy on bikes. The PR5 motor is really quite a jem. The PR4 motor is basically a hot rodded CRF230 motor and includes a big external oil cooler under on rad shroud.

Company was started by enduro champ Antonio Pinto and his brother. Started out as a performance shop for enduro racers and evolved into making bikes. They are pretty popular in europe and UK seems to have a bunch.

I know. Used to live in Vancouver, and around Seattle.

Been looking at the bikes, wish I hadn't just bought yet another KTM.

OK so Zongshen just makes the engines. Nothing wrong with the Chinese engines. CSC is now importing the CX3 street oriented bike which uses same Zongshen liquid cooled 250cc engine, and they've gotten good reviews.
