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?
I want one
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
sweet, I'm excited for more details
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...
Well, they have a US distributor
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...
*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
sweet hydro clutch setup :huh
ha good eye!
The CL ad links back to here: http://ajppa.com/
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.
Look at their Facebook page "AJP motos" if you understand Portugese.
Interesting their current range goes up to PR5 (a 250cc), and this is the PR7...
I wonder if they have any intention of making a 450cc version too (using the Yamaha WR450F engine for example) dubbed the 'PR6', and having a crack at the Dakar?!
AJP ceo António Pinto has the dream of having one AJP in the Dakar some day! Also the AJP PR5 won this year the FIA world cup ladies with the pilot Rita Vieira (https://pt-br.facebook.com/RitaVieiraRacing).
This PR7 is tickling me... When the final version arrives i will probably look into it very seriously and maybe i trade my XT660Z (2011) with a AJP PR7
I've seen it today on the intermot in grmany.
I WANT ONE.
