I know!

It ticks so many boxes for me. That suspension travel, no substitute. EVER.

Shit it’s giving me fomo - How available are spares and trick parts/accessories ?

I follow AJP from few months.
I asked them directly if they will sell the PR7 in South Africa and they told me no. I'm glad to see that they are starting to change their mind. Very nice bike.

They have so much success in Australia that we had impact here in Switzerland.

Australian test;

and the flyer (2017)







I contacted a guy who take the PR7 from Holland to Mongolia. Good results

Ek stem saam! Hierdie PR 7 is die bike waarvoor baie ouens voor gevra het! Gaan kyk terug na die besprekings/wishlists oor bikes.. Hierdie is die een!

Ek twyfel of naverkope diens n problem gaan wees. Daar moet net n paar shops gekontrakteer word en hulle moet commit.. "Trick" parts moet net bestel word van Portugal, 3-4 dae dan is dit hier!

Hierdie ouens moet net full commitment vir ons wys!! Ek wil een koop..

Edit: Husqvarna het ook maar net n paar diensplekke! En meeste van hulle "trick" parts word van Austria bestel..

any idea of when they will be available to public?

I haven't heard yet but I will let the forum know as soon as I hear. Price was approx. R141,995.- but this was dependent on the exchange rate at time of purchase

In the realm of fantasy here, but if I could afford it I'd probably buy one. Which is a bit like saying if I could afford Buckingham palace I'd probably buy it.  :snorting:

With all that pipe dream money available though, I'm not sure whether I'd just live with that God-awful ugly 'rally' style front end, which I detest, or modify it to something more straight and simple which is what I like.

Apart from that though It seems that someone's got it right at last. Just wondering about one thing though. I suspect those Aussie testers have to say that It sits comfortably at 110, because that's all they're officially allowed to do. 130 - 140 is perfectly feasible I'm sure, just like all the others in the same class.

Google Husqvarna TE630 - will be very close in performance and better at cruising due to the standard screen. Cafe Husky website also good place to look under 610/630

You can also check with this guy. He did a trip to Mongolia with his PR7. I discussed with him, very nice. His bike was send to AJP to analyze how the bike was after the Mongolia's trip.

Yes, oil and filters. But other bigger maintenance issues?

I am sure you would be safe with guys who did the previous Husky 610's and 630's - Bikers Warehouse etc. But ja after sales questions are always the issue.

Claimed 165kg wet weight, not half bad for a bike with all this kit.

Light, single, 18/21 wheels. All you need, this bike will fill a big gap in the market dominated by the 701/690.

I'm in contact with Antony Teale.

"I am busy negotiating to get one of the bigger motorcycle companies on board to sell and service the AJP’s as they have branches in Johannesburg and Cape Town . We will definitely get you a bike so not to worry about this. The pricing will be around R141,995.- odd as it depends on the exchange rate at the time of purchase."
