New AJP PR7 Adventure breaks cover
This is no lumbering adventure leviathan, but that doesn’t mean AJP have skimped on the spec and tech. At its heart, it’s a real off road bike: light, compact and agile, but also comfortable enough to be capable of delivering a day in the saddle without needing a proctologist to remove the bike afterwards and it's been designed to carry luggage, too.
Standard features include a cush drive rear hub for smoother pick-up and drive; titanium header pipes nestle behind a serious HD bash plate; there’s a lightweight Shorai Lithium battery to help keep weight down, and high-spec fully-adjustable Sachs suspension at both ends, with the inverted fork being a fat 48mm in girth, with a generous stroke of 300mm at both ends.
One of the nicest touches though is the Samsung Galaxy 6 Android tablet mounted up front like a 21st century road book. It enables the rider to download their preferred navigational apps, and can be used with a standard GPS, Garmin or TomTom.
The tablet can also be used as a simple display with speedometer, timer, trip meter and more. There's also a handy USB port to enable to charge other accessories.
The fuel is carried under the rider’s seat, giving optimum balance and a 17-litre capacity for serious mileage from the 600cc liquid-cooled single. Available now at £8500+otr, you can read the full test in MCN and online imminently.
