Jawa Motorcycles started accepting booking for the all new Jawa Perak motorcycle last evening at 6pm local time. In an interesting update, the company said via a Tweet that the website was experiencing heavy traffic.
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.
Bookings are currently open and will be temporarily stopped at the end of March, and deliveries are scheduled to begin from 2 April 2020. The company will also limit the number of bookings so that all motorcycles can be delivered within a period of three months.
Jawa Motorcycles had originally unveiled the Perak in November 2018 along with the Jaw 42 and the Jawa 300 models, but launch was pushed to a later date.
The Jawa Perak features a 334cc BS6 compliant single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that produces 30bhp of power and 31Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front, and a mono-shock at the rear. The motorcycle also features disc brakes at the front and the rear, and dual-channel ABS is offered as a standard.
The Jawa Perak features a matte blackish-grey paint scheme with light gold highlights. The motorcycle features a floating seat, bar-end mirrors, bobbed fenders, and chopped exhaust mufflers.
The Jawa Perak is currently priced at Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India), making it the cheapest bobber available in the country. The motorcycle competes primarily with Royal Enfield 350cc motorcycle range.
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.
