Q. Why buy an AJS?

A. There are two aspects to this. Firstly there’s the reason to ride a motorcycle in general, and secondly, why you should choose to ride an AJS motorcycle.

AJS Motorcycles and scooters offer the following benefits:

  • Low running cost – a 125 motorcycle or scooter can return 100 mpg.

  • Inexpensive to insure compared to a car.

  • Easy to park, often for free.

  • CBT is much cheaper than getting a car licence.

  • Shorten your journey time by filtering through congestion.

  • Great fun and a sense of freedom.

Hopefully you see the benefits of motorcycling, but why should you choose an AJS motorcycle?

AJS motorcycles are of excellent quality and offer exceptional value for money, yet all AJS motorcycles are European Whole Vehicle Type Approved to the latest standards meeting or exceeding European safety and emissions requirements.
