Why this bike?
I started riding motorcycles in 2017, bought an old Africa Twin and went on a three-month bike trip with a friend of mine. A total lack of experience and a bike that was way too heavy quickly made me realise I needed to look for a lighter motorcycle. After reading endless travel reports and bike reviews, I decided to look for a used BMW G 650 X-Challenge. Unfortunately, they’re quite expensive at 10 years old with high mileage.
So I started looking into the AJP PR7 Adventure 650. It’s a light off-road bike, powerful enough, has a relatively big fuel tank mounted below the seat (equals low centre of gravity), good suspension, options to mount luggage and good reviews from other travellers (comfortable and reliable).
The bike has been pretty reliable overall. I encountered one big problem, which was a leaking cylinder head gasket. In hindsight, that could have been caused by improper installation during a major service (scheduled replacement of timing chain). Other than that, I have only had small issues like a dead battery, leaking clutch master cylinder and a few other minor bits and pieces. I never got stranded on the side of the road though.
