The following is a press release from CPD…
(January 6, 2023) Central Powersports Distribution has signed an agreement with AJP Motorcycles of Portugal to become the new U.S. importer and distributor for 2023 and beyond. Jeff Schlagel of Moto AJP USA, the previous importer, has made an agreement with CPD to continue handling AJP until the end of February 2023, while CPD continues its efforts to transfer their offices to Texas permanently.
AJP Motos in Portugal has been producing motorcycles since 1987 when longtime Enduro legend, Antonio Pinto, designed and built a 125cc 2-stroke enduro bike. Throughout the years, AJP has transformed into durable, reliable, and cost-effective four-stroke trail bikes. AJP now offers a full range of enduro-leisure motorcycles, from the beginner-friendly SPR240 to the adventure-ready PR7 650.
“We appreciate the efforts and growth that Jeff gave AJP here in the USA during a difficult import period the last two years. We hope we can continue to grow the brand off of his passion and efforts.” Mark Berg of CPD stated. “AJP fits our current business model quite well and AJP will be sending us some units to display and test in January. We have already placed an order for our first container mix to arrive in April/May of 2023. The first container will include the PR7, SPR240, SPR240 EX, and the SPR250 ,310, & 510 for a wide selection of reliable trail bikes for CPD dealers to have on their showroom floors.”
“AJP Motos is very pleased with the agreement established with CPD and looks forward for the opportunity to expand in the U.S. market with such experienced and trustful company as CPD,” said Antonio Pinto of AJP. “We are thankful for all the effort performed by Scott and Jeff in the past to launch AJP products in the U.S., and wish to Mark and his great team to develop AJP business in the U.S., to allow U.S. riders the chance to ride one of our bikes. We believe that our bikes will fill a space that no manufacturer is looking right now and this agreement with CPD will for sure allow riders to enjoy their ride a lot more with AJP bikes, especially PR7, our most successful bike.”
CPD currently imports and distributes notable OEM motorcycle brands such as Rieju, Electric Motion, and SWM. Viral Brand goggles was recently added to the CPD family of aftermarket brands already in distribution, including Funnel Web Filters, S3 Parts, and Trickbits protection parts. CPD will continue to add more aftermarket segments specific to off-road; more announcements are to come on the aftermarket sector for CPD and OEM additions.
