Jawa Motorcycles were brought back to the Indian market recently with the launch of two new offerings, Jawa and Jawa Forty Two. The two motorcycles came with a price tag of Rs 1.55 lakh for the Jawa 42 and Rs 1.64 lakh for the Jawa.
However, the brand also showcased another custom-bobber style motorcycle, the Perak at the event with a price tag of Rs 1.89 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). Now, Anupam Thareja, Founder, Classic Legends has told IAB that bookings for the Jawa Perak will commence from September 2019.
Thareja stated, "As of now, we are taking bookings only for these two bikes. We want to provide the best sales & service experience. So, probably towards the end of the year, we'll start the bookings for the Perak."
Unlike the Jawa and the Jawa forty two, the Perak comes with a factory custom-bobber style design. It features a single-cantilever seat, a redesigned swingarm, a modified version of the same chassis underpinning the other two models, disc brake on both ends with standard dual-channel ABS and a mono-shock suspension under the seat.
The Jawa Perak is also powered by a slightly more powerful 334cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine. It produces 30bhp and 31Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed transmission unit.
The Jawa and Jawa forty two, on the other hand, are powered by the same 293cc single-cylinder liquid cooled engine seen on the Mahindra Mojo. This engine churns out 27bhp and 28Nm of torque and mated to the same six-speed gearbox. Both the Jawa and the Jawa 42 come with disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear. In terms of suspension, the both motorcycles receive standard telescopic front forks and gas-charged twin shocks at the rear.
Thoughts On The Jawa Perak Bookings
Jawa Motorcycles showcased the Perak at the launch event of the Jawa and Jawa 42. The motorcycle instantly gained a lot of attention. With bookings to commence soon, deliveries of the Perak is expected by end-2019. The Jawa Perak does not have any direct rival in the market, however, it will rival the likes of the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 250 and the Classic 350.
