According to reports from Autocar India, the new Jawa electric motorcycle is being worked on behind the scenes.

However, given Mahindra's experience with EVs over the years, some knowledge transfer is bound to still take place.

Jawa Motorcycles, similar to its petrol-powered offerings is working to ensure high-levels of localisation for their upcoming electric bike. This will, however, exclude parts such as the battery cells and the BMS (Battery Management System), which will have to be imported.

The new Jawa electric motorcycle could carry forward the retro-classic design theme, similar to its current petrol-powered offerings. However, with the electric powertrain in place, the electric bike could still manage to feature certain futuristic and modern design aspects as well, while also coming with a host of features as well.

Apart from this, there is very little information to go by regarding the Jawa electric bike at this point. The company is still quite some time away from actually unveiling the model in the market.

Jawa BS6 motorcycles recently started arriving at dealerships across India. The company introduced BS6 versions of their Jawa, Jawa forty-two and Perak earlier this year, however, deliveries were delayed due to the subsequent lockdown across India.

Although launched earlier during the year, Jawa announced the power and torque figures of their motorcycles only post lockdown. Similar to their older versions, both the Jawa and Jawa forty-two models are powered by the same 293cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine.

The updated BS6-compliant units though produce 26.2bhp and 27Nm of peak torque, which is a slight drop (0.8bhp and 0.95Nm less) compared to its BS4 versions and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
