So this is the Huskey 610 engine then, and was known to be reliable?

I assume one can get the bike serviced or repaired at a place like 'Offroad cycles' but I hope spares will not be an issue.Ktm/Huskey may stock engine parts?

eish...I must have missed the part where the 690/701 were being deployed, labeled as a tourer.
Its a narrow focus machine and has never tried to shy away from this fact.

But back on track here...The PR7 hopefully is well received, we need more choices.
No argue regarding the value,  right here.
 125k for a 450L, 200k ish for a AT or 850, 270k for a 1200. All different bikes with different pros and cons.
Power is indeed a relative ghost, at times you want more,  certain times need less.
Keep on giving feedback please.

In what sense?
 Btw this pr7 has 630 engine, not 610.

And if somebody should have engine parts it is SWM as they own whatever was tge prior life husqvarna. Are they in sa?

 :o Pray tell?

The 630 engine was better but very much the same engine anyway. Otherwise the 630 was virtually identical, slightly lower spec suspension thats all.

As far as i remember 630 was DOHC 600cc engine, while 610 was SOHC 570 cc engine. Apart from that the same.

Suspension on 630 was lot worse, at least compared to early models 610. Later on 610 suspension was dumbed down, still better. This pr7 seems to have suspension better tgan any of those bikes.

630 was slightly heavier than 610 and had inferior suspension but was still a very good bike. I would not have minded one.

For a bike that is adventure ready out the box that is phenomenal.

I have one brand new AJP PR7 bike for sale now and another one approx. middle of next week. I just have to get the paperwork finalized on the second bike - 90% there already. Price of the bike is R155,000.-  I have already got stock of the necessary spare parts to do oil changes, spare levers ( all ) & sprockets, outer plastics, etc in case they are needed.  If anyone is interested please let me know with a personal message.

The way I see it is that this is the bike WD were always building on numerous threads.
I would not mind one, but I think some of us can't stretch the budget to reach a dreamlike.
This is cheaper than the 690, which I also admire.

Slasher please share with us your plans and vision for this bike such as.
Warranty - spares support - sales and servicing and availability of new bikes.
From what I can gather the bikes are being sold from Langebaan - Western Cape.
Any plans to go national ?

NO, WE WANT TO KNOW NOW!!!.   :deal:

I think if you can set up a support system the bike will sell well.  BUT (me and my but's) that could also be the downfall.  You've got a moerse challange.

Maybe an option will be to let the normal service be done by 'any' motorcycle workshop to retain the warranty.  A lot of Honda owners did that with the AT due to the lack of Honda .........
