AJS 250 Stormer


AJS is an acronym for Albert John Stevens, one of four sons that started producing AJS motorcycles in 1910. The Stevens brothers’ father financed the new company and then further aided the boys by producing the engines that were used in the motorcycles. Throughout its existence, right up to the time it entered the motocross market, AJS produced its own engines. That was its claim to fame, and the non-AJS engine in the new Stormer motocross machine would be its downfall.The Stormer 250 (designated Y4) had some racing success in the British 250cc Championships as factory rider Malcolm Davis won the championship in 1968 and 1969 and his teammate Andy Roberson finished in second.
