AJP started in 1987 with the Ariana 125cc bike and have gone from strength to strength which is a good sign for us consumers I think. Another thing that is great about the PR7 is that the tank filler is in the front so that if you are carrying luggage you don't have to unpack everything to full up.

These guys have done good ongoing R&D on this bike and in many ways it is an uprated and updated Husky 610/630. If they get the pricing right (unlikely with the exchange rate) this is the type of bike many many guys should be looking at instead of the 790 or T7. The Husky 610/630's have been very popular and rated  proper middleweight DS bikes in the USA and Australia. I love my TE610.  :thumleft:

This bike fills a BIG gap between the 500/501 and the new but heavy 790adv and T7!

If you look back at all the previous discussions and wishlists on the bike forums then this is exactly what most of us have been waiting/hoping for!..I like! :thumleft:

Most in SA believe you have to have a multi cylinder DS bike, this is where the PR7 will fall out of the buss if the price is anywhere near a 790 or T7. I would buy it in a flash !

It will come into SA, sell some models, and depart, leaving owners with a very much de-valued bike.

If there were a market beyond us dreamers for these bikes, Yamaha, Honda, KTM, etc would have had it here already.
