I got my info here but see they found something wrong with the bike much further down in the article - http://www.cafehusky.com/threads/te630-dyno-results-and-thoughts.24763/ . Australia gets the 48hp model and USA gets the 60hp model. I am not sure why anyone would want the 48hp model unless there is a law in place that governs this in Australia. I see the Husky and KTM 690's push out around 69hp now ( the newer bikes )  but is this at the back wheel ?

My 2014 690 (two engine updates behind the current 701) showed just under 65 on the rear wheel. Evo airbox and Acra fitted. Wearing a knobbly if that makes a difference

Stopped off for the weekend in Elands Bay after a few days solo mission in the Tankwa on my 500 and saw this outside the hotel:



I must say, it looks very very nice in the flesh. Everything looks high quality and well turned out. If this was a Honda or KTM they would sell truck loads.

I am surprised they did not put a red valve cover on it like the Husk,. would have matched nicely.  :imaposer:

65 on rear sounds a bit optimistic with knobby and all.
Figures also mean nothing if they aren't measured on the same Dyno.

I have the dyno printout somewhere. Whether the dyno itself is accurate I can't say. Just relaying first hand info as Slasher asked. Unlike constant "I have read on the internet" opinions......

Looks pretty with some dust on! Who was the rider?...or is that top secret for now!

Still a pity they could not arrive at a decent name - AJP sounds like an old Pom motosickle ... or a rugby player. We probably need to come up with some appropriate (or inappropriate) acronyms.  :imaposer:

How about the 'Pinto', then...  ;)

I think PR7 is a great short strong name for a bike. XR650, T7,etc etc. Some are even named KTM! :lol8:

Yeah the name is pretty lame, probably worse than Puzey.

At least the bike doesn’t match the name! Would love to test one.

Hi Tom, Please have a look at Slasher on page 13 for the answer to you question. It is going to take few months before I can give you proper answers.

HowTF are we meant to know that these obscure initials are associated with Antonio Pinto?  - ok I rest my case, but still not sure it will help sell these bikes in numbers.  :o  although we have BMW, KTM, SWM etc I guess.

Spend more time investigating your opinion than having TF one.
