The Jawa Perak is also the third product from the brand in the Indian market. The Perak was launched exactly one year after the introduction of the Jawa and Jawa 42 models in India. It is also the range-topping model, priced higher than both other motorcycles in the lineup.

The Jawa Perak comes with a number of unique styling features. This includes a single-seat, teardrop fuel-tank, single-sided extended swingarm and bar-end mirrors.

That said, here are some of the top things to know about the bobber-style motorcycle:

The Jawa Perak comes with a modified version of the same engine as on the Jawa and Jawa 42. However, the Perak has a higher displacement, as well as increased power and torque outputs. The engine is also compliant with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms as well.

The Jawa Perak is powered by a 334cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It produces 30bhp and 31Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox.

Jawa Motorcycles are yet to share any official performance figures of the Perak motorcycle. However, considering the power output and weight, we expect it to come with a top speed of around 150km/h to 160km/h.

Mileage & Fuel Tank Capacity

The Jawa Perak comes with the same fuel tank as the Jawa and Jawa 42 motorcycle. This includes the same 14-litre tank capacity as the others.

However, with slightly higher displacement and power output from the engine, we expect the Perak to return a lower mileage figure than the other two models. The fuel efficiency figures of the Jawa Perak will be in the range of 28 - 32km/l.

The Jawa Perak comes as a single-seater motorcycle. Being a bobber-style motorcycle the Jawa Perak has a seat height of 750mm' lower than the Jawa and Jawa 42. The motorcycle has a kerb weight of 179kg, which isn't too bad for a motorcycle. However, at 1485mm the Jawa Perak is said to have one of the longest wheelbases in the country.

Thoughts On The Jawa Perak Bobber Motorcycle

The Jawa Perak is a very unique motorcycle in the Indian market. The motorcycle stands-out among the rest, with its single-seat, extended swingarm and overall design. The motorcycle in India rivals the likes of the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 and the Benelli Imperiale 400.
