The AJP PR4 Enduro motorcycle is made in Portugal, using engines from Taiwan and a sturdy, locally built chassis, featuring durable Paioli suspension and handy features like a see-thru gas tank, so you can see how you're doing on fuel when in the wilds. The motorcycles look and feel tough enough to last well, but are expensive to buy and the engines are simply too old tech and lack lowdown urge.

MCN rating rating is 2

The CPI supplied AJP PR4 Enduro engine from Taiwan is basically a copy of old Honda single cylinder motors, with a few modern tweaks. They do the job, but the AJP PR4 Enduro feels a bit flat, a little crude and buzzy compared to modern day Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki 125cc/200cc motorcycles. The AJP 200 has very good economy however, if you want an enduro style commuter motorcycle.

Ride and Handling

MCN rating rating is 4
Owners' rating rating is 0

The AJP PR4 Enduro has a well made chassis, featuring a tubular frame and rugged Italian suspension, complete with substantial swingarm. It comes with semi-knobbly tyres as standard too. On the road, they feel a bit twitchy, but light enough to be chucked about once you develop some confidence.

As you might expect from an enduro, there's not much in the way of luxury with the AJP PR4 Enduro. Great chassis components, firm seat, wide handlebars with brushguards - that's about it. We haven't ridden an AJP PR4 Enduro at night but we would expect the lighting to be pretty basic to be honest. Compare and buy parts for the AJS PR4 Enduro in the MCN Shop.

Quality and Reliability

MCN rating rating is 4
Owners' rating rating is 0

There's no question the AJP PR4 Enduro and AJP motorcycles are built to a high spec overall. But they do cost a fair bit more than the average Chinese 125/200 trailbike new. You get an undeniable feeling of rugged reliability with the AJP PR4 Enduro, but that is offset each time you hit an uphill section of road - or trail - by the plodding engines. Will those Taiwanese engines last as well as many an 80s SOHC Honda single already has done? Good question...

At nearly three grand the AJP PR4 Enduro 200 is an expensive way to trundle to work. The 125cc range aren't anywhere near as cheap as many other `rare' brand name motorcycles either. The fact that the AJP PR4 Enduro is made in the EU, with a decent chassis, counts for something, but if you're looking for a learner bike to start your 17-year-old's motorcycling career, maybe the AJPs are simply too expensive, and too off-road biased.

Current AJP motorcycles

This early model AJP does not compare with the much improved current bikes, which have a light alloy frame and very good cycle parts. They can be seen on the Wikipedia AJPP Motos page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AJP_Motos ). Apparently, a rider took one from Portugal to Capetown via West Africa and it didn't miss a beat. If I were to do a real "adventure trip" like that, going down roads that are barely tracks, I reckon I'd sooner be on something like an AJP 250 than a big GS BMW.
