    Personally would like the front to look more like this one:

    I'm really interested in this bike. I hope they can keep the weight to a minimum. The specs look great, I can only wish for it to be reliable and with a good build quality, don't want it to rust and fall apart after a few uses. I guess I will wait about a year to see people's feedback.

    Regards

    The importer in VT is only 6 months into this with a US presence.
    His name is Scott Amstrong scott@motoajp.com and will answer any questions you have. He quickly answered mine on the PR4.

    I'm sure he is way too busy at this point to have a presence at IMS this year (which takes ALOT of time, planning and work) when he is focused on increasing his dealer network more than anything else.

    AJP has been at it since 1987
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AJP_Motos

    The design and spec the frame, tank, plastics, swingarm etc. and have it produced in Taiwan to meet their quality requirements. They are then using quality Marzoochi and Sachs suspension components. Their electronics are Delphi. Their motors used have changed & improved over the years.

    All the parts come to their factory in Portugal and are hand assembled.
    One of the 2 owners hand inspects every finished bike.
    I've read many owner reports of theses bikes and everyone is blown away at the quality of the parts and assembly. Everyone says it screams high end Euro build at affordable Japanese price. The ride is great and the bikes are built tough and last.

    The 2 motors in the current PR 3,3.4,4,5 are built by Zongshen in Taiwan. Zongshen is the highest quality mfg in China and produces for many motors found in other bikes. The FI PR250 is found in the Gas Gas cami and also the new SCS ADV bike. The PR3-4 motor is a Honda 230 clone licensed from Honda with a 5 spd not 6.

    Only Scott will know exactly how & where this new 660 is produced, but judging by AJP's past performances it will be a great package. It's miles away from cheap Chinese junk.

    I'd like to see more too. I'm tired of the lack of variety for bikes out there. you have either a Japanese mx bike or KTM/variant.......

    That's what I was thinking, too. I will need to find something out there that will replace my 610 in a few years. Love the 610 tranny, power, brakes, and suspension. However, build quality is lacking, engine maintenance is quite a bit higher than Jap-spec, and turning radius is a joke.

    From what I am hearing about the AJP, build and component quality is tops!
    Knock it out of the park, AJP!
    Give me options! :clap

    How about a SWM RS 650 R, a Husky TE 630 clone?

    This from Scott 09-01-15 ...

    Hello Hahmule,

    Thanks for reaching out regarding the PR7. Currently that bike is still at least 1 to 2 years out from being available in the USA as 50 state street legal. There are some nice changes headed for that model though - and AJP should be showing off the latest version of it this fall at the larger european motorcycle shows. Watch the press and our FB for coverage on that unveiling.

    Thanks again,​

    Beginning to sound like 2017 at the earliest.

    My understanding is almost everything EXCEPT the wide-ratio 6-speed transmission. If this is true, I'll search for a used TE/SMS 630. The transmission is THE reason for me to buy that bike.

    I've heard about Rotax 500.
    660 may be discontinued.

    I believe it will bebut next year in Europe but it takes some tough mesures to get it 50 state street legal in USA.

    Bring it over as an off road bike. Many (maybe most) of the states in the US, it is very easy to get them registered and licensed. Especially if it has all of the lights and stuff already on it.
