A little taste of Portugal in Lincolnshire

Up-and-coming Portuguese off-road bike maker AJP Motos has announced a new dealer in Lincolnshire. Sportax Racing in Swineshead Bridge, Lincolnshire, has been preparing off-road racebikes and Rotax-powered bikes for more than three decades, and has joined the AJP network to expand its brand range, selling bikes and parts alongside its existing business.

Set up in 1987 by two brothers, Antonio and Jorge Pinto, Penafiel-based firm AJP started out as an off-road racebike tuning outfit, but began building its own machines in 2001. Its current range covers 125-600cc off-road bikes, with enduro, trail, supermoto and adventure models all available.

Sportax Racing owner, Gary Wigston (pictured), is very positive about the deal. “A few years ago, I noticed the AJP Motorcycle stand at the NEC Motorcycle Live show. I really liked the look of all the models: they were well-put-together, with some quality aftermarket parts already fitted as standard. There was a good choice of bikes across the range to suit learner riders, those wishing to venture out onto green lanes for the first time and those who have a bit more experience off-road or are into racing enduro or rally events. Even specialised supermoto bikes are available for the road or race track – which always look great.”

And AJP UK owner, Martin Bell, told us, “It’s a great pleasure to welcome Sportax to the AJP UK dealer network – Gary has many years of experience in the repair and modification of trail and adventure motorcycles. Sportax Racing is a great addition to the growing AJP dealer network and is ideally located to support AJP owners in the East of England. Their passion and enthusiasm for the AJP brand is outstanding and with the support of AJP UK the future looks great. We wish them all the best.”
