Classic Legends launched Jawa motorcycles in India in November last year. They was a lot of hype around Jawa making a comeback in the country. Bookings started at launch but deliveries started only in March this year.

Jawa motorcycles that were delivered from March this year were single-channel ABS variants. Deliveries of dual-channel ABS variants had been pushed to a later date and Classic Legends have come through. Anupam Thareja had confirmed deliveries would begin soon in a reply to a customer over social media.

Classic Legends has established over 100 dealerships across the country and the company has been overwhelmed with the number of booking they received. The waiting period for a Jawa motorcycle currently stands between six and nine months. Classic Legends says the delay has happened because of vendors.

Thoughts About Jawa Beginning Deliveries Of Dual-Channel ABS Motorcycles

Folk who booked these motorcycles must be relieved, we think. Classic Legends has taken way too much time to start with deliveries. The idea of bringing the Jawa back to India was to capture some of Royal Enfield's 350 market. We're sure Classic Legends has lost some momentum and they will have to work really hard to make up for lost time, and trust. We hope they're able to meet delivery deadlines, not just for customers but also in terms of spares and after sales services.
