Most of the times clients are going to be placed on either our AJP PR5 250cc enduro – trailriding bikes or the SWM RS300cc. Never heard of the AJP? Well it is a great little technical enduro bike that is garnering attention all over the World. More recently the AJP PR5 and it’s smaller brother the PR4 have been having great success in extreme enduro competitions throughout the World. The SWM is of course the old Husky FE range that has now been bought out by SWM Italia and subsequently the enduro and trailriding pedigree of this bike has already been proven.
The AJP PR5 250cc is made here in Portugal. The owner of AJP was in fact a National Champion in Trials and Enduro. Lightweight dirtbikes with under seat fuel tank for low C of G, low ratio gears in lower gears and open gearing in upper gears means this trailbike can be ridden more like a Trials bike in tough technical areas or opened up in sand etc.
I have been in the Portuguese National enduro series on the PR5’s and I can honestly say, they are very capable. They have earned themselves the nickname of “The Goat” for their amazing hill climbing prowess.
As for the SWM RS300r. It is based on the very capable Enduro FE series from Husqvarna. These dirtbikes are very forgiving for the less experienced rider but equally experienced riders will find that they provide enough power to have a great days trailriding. More recently the SWM 300cc has won several tournament rounds overseas and more club riders are choosing them to race.
Our guiding bikes are chosen the day before and can be a mixture of either the AJP, SWM or my old faithful motorbike the KTM.
Either way, no matter which dirtbike you’re given for your time here, They are the perfect enduro bike for trailriding in this area. Having over 12 years offroad riding experience in this area I have chosen the bikes carefully.
