Jawa claims that the website has crashed because of the high traffic and this indicates that the interest in the Perak bobber style motorcycle is high. However, the company has not revealed how many bookings they received before the website crashed.

The company is accepting bookings via their website and via authorised dealers for a refundable amount of Rs 10,000. Jawa's strategy this time around is to open bookings for the Perak for periods of three months and close deliveries before repeating the process.

Thoughts About The Jawa Website Crashing

Here we go again. The first time around it was just the delivery estimator. This time, its the whole website. Jawa seems to be unable to break the jinx that surrounds them. Hopefully they have their vendors, work force, production line and everything else in place. How the company handles delivers for the Perak will either make them or break them.
