Hi All

Found this, shame, I quite like the look of it, shame they only do a 125 version...

http://www.ajsmotorcycles.co.uk/#!cadwell125/g3ril

I think the engine is a YBR clone.

Cheers

Tony

[Awaits stinkwheel's comment on the footpeg position]

That does actually look nicer than the 'cafe' offerings from Herald, Sinnis and Lexmoto, although I still think the Skyteam Ace knocks it out of the park.

Handsome little bike.
Would be interesting if it was done in other engine sizes other than 125.

Very nice looking bike. 2k is quite strong money when the standard Jianshe commuter is 900. There's always been a 33% premium to have the AJS badge anyway.

Engine is the same from the ECO, the short lived Custom and a truck load of other 125's

Developed in "conjunction" with Yamaha, it's basically a YBR125 ED with 4 plate clutch instead of 5.
The 150cc YBR big bore kit is a straight swap....apparently.

It really needs 150cc because 60mph is all it has, with the last 5mph taking some time Smile

Interestingly they quote gas shocks as an available extra, but when clicking on the extras, it's not there.

Sure is a looker.. has anyone seen one in the flesh yet? I'm a fan of the the Skyteam Ace but find the AJS to be much more purposeful., its clearly bigger bike and to my eye better proportioned, 110 front and 130 rear mean it'll take some decent rubber as well.

For those wanting a bigger engine I read a 400cc Kawasaki engined version is on the horizon..

Note as far as the Ace goes there's a reasonably straight forward 250 engine conversion, which from what I've read punts the 90 odd kg bike along fairly well!

The handlebars look the same as those fitted to the AJS R7, I got one in last week with the left handlebar stem loose on yoke mounting, the right bar was broken just were the stem was pressed into the yoke mounting, the bike was not dropped and showed only 1.1k miles. Hope they have got the bars on this model sorted out.
