In 2016, Mahindra purchased 60 percent stake in Classic Legends Private Limited, which owns BSA and also has an exclusive license agreement with Jawa for India and other countries. Now, the Czech company has revealed the Jawa 350 Special in Europe.
The new 350 Special is the third motorcycle from the Czech manufacturer in Europe. The other two Jawa motorcycles are the Jawa 350 OHC and the 660 Vintage. The Jawa 350 Special is a special edition bike with several unique design elements which give the motorcycle a distinct look.
The Jawa 350 Special features a large fairing, retro colour scheme, classic upswept exhaust pipes, round headlamp and a lot of chrome. The rear end of the bike is designed like a cafe racer with a flat seat and bum-stop. Overall, the Jawa 350 Special is indeed a special motorcycle from the classic era.
The Jawa 350 Special draws power from a 397cc parallel-twin engine producing 27.6bhp and 30.6Nm of torque. The same engine is deployed in the Jawa 350 OHC. The engine is manufactured by a Chinese company, Shinray with the fuel injection system from Delphi.
The kerb weight of the Jawa 350 Special stands at 171kg, 11kg more than the Jawa 350 OHC. The motorcycle gets a 17-litre fuel tank. The motorcycle also complies with the Euro VI emission norms and also gets ABS.
Mahindra is likely to bring the Jawa 350 OHC and the 660 Vintage to India but the 350 Special is unlikely to make it to India. Mahindra will also introduce a Jawa bike based on the platform of the Mojo. The all-new motorcycle is expected to be a modern-classic offering from the company.
