NEW AJP MODELS ANNOUNCED! – For 2017
Do you remember when performance dirt bikes were affordable? Easy to ride? Had a low seat height? Here at AJP, we’ve never forgotten those principals. In fact, we’ve built our business for almost 30 years now on the premise of offering affordable, 2 Easy 2 Ride, fully-suspended Enduro bikes, with class-leading low seat heights! Curious? Please read on….
AJP is back!
Praised in the enthusiast’s press for outstanding handling, top-notch components, and incredible value – our PR3, PR4, and PR5 return for 2017! For sure, we have some nice changes in-store for our carryover lineup, plus two exciting new models to announce as well! The big news is that we will now be offering the Extreme versions of the PR4 and PR5 for 2017! These two models will be our new “flagship” bikes – offering the lightest weight, best suspension, strongest brakes, and the most horsepower – over any of our other models!
At AJP – we etch our passion for off-road riding into every hand welded frame we produce. To ensure consistent quality – a single craftsman builds each chassis from scratch to a complete running motorcycle. And our Factory in Europe strives to fit only the highest quality components to our bikes – such as Michelin tires, Twin Air filters, Sachs suspension, Delphi electronics, and Polisport plastics – to name just a few.
Please check out our complete 2017 model line-up of off-road motorcycles in AJP dealerships this September. Once you see and ride our bikes – you will understand that AJP has never forgotten what’s important to you!
Learn more about Dirt Bike’s review of the PR5 . . . If it’s possible to hurt a motorcycle’s feelings, we probably did it to the AJP PR5. We’re sorry. We won’t do it again. If you don’t know what an AJP PR5 is, don’t worry. Apparently, we didn’t either. AJP is a company out of Portugal that specializes in making inexpensive trail bikes. The parts are sourced from all over the world, but the key to the low price is the Asian-made motors. There are a number of different models, including the PR4 we tested last month, but the PR5 is more of a performance-oriented 249cc off-road bike that sells for under $6000.
Excerpt from Dirt Bike Magazine’s Review of the PR 4. . . Some of the most common complaints we hear about modern bikes concern the retail sticker shock and the expense of maintenance. And on top of this cacophony of complaints from the general whiners and moaners, there is an additional group of complainers lamenting the absence of true off-road bikes for smaller riders.
AJP is a new-to-the-U.S. company that was founded in 1987 in Portugal by AJP himself: seven-time Portuguese National Enduro champion Antonio J. Pinto. In the early years, AJP focused on uber-competitive two-strokes, but even a quick look at the PR4 reveals that the air-cooled, electric-start motor is no enduro championship weapon. Even though the engine has more in common with a Honda CRF230F than a race-spec 250cc, the chassis and running gear have serious off-road credibility.
Looking for a light-weight low seat height off-road dirt bike with Electric start and the look and feel of Free-Ride or Xtrainer? AJP’s PR3 and PR 4 an amazing alternative! The AJP PR M=models are air-cooled with fully adjustable suspension onboard! We offer one of the lowest seat height ranges in off-road!c Look to our Dealer’s Page to find the nearest dealer that can show you or demo a bike at your convenience.

A Little more about AJP. . . .
In the early 2000’s AJP applied all their know-how of racing and design into the first PR4 series model using then, a 125 4-stroke engine and a full steel frame. Already the unique traits affiliated with AJP to this day were used on the early model PR4. Technical ideas such as a short wheelbase, fuel-tank under seat, narrow stand-over width, and high-end suspension components were present on that very first PR4.
In 2007 the latest version of the AJP frame is introduced – a hybrid Aluminum-Steel structure that combines lightweight and low cost to manufacture in one complete package. Once this platform was introduced is wasn’t long before the new models started rolling out such as a ergonomically smaller model called the PR3. The PR3 shares almost all the same components and features with its bigger brother the PR4 with the exception of swing-arm, forks, wheel-set, and frame steering head to seat relationship. The shorter distance from the steering head to the seat shortens the wheelbase on this model and also allows for riders of smaller build to easily reach the hand controls and feel comfortable on this bike. . . .READ MORE
