The 3 JAWA motorbikes classic themed reborn in India

For the classic motorbike fans, they definitely know the classic motorbike brand from Czech Republic known as 'JAWA.' which was famous in the era before and after the second world war.

The motorcycle and moped manufacturer founded in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1929 by František Janeček, who bought the Wanderer motorcycle division. The name JAWA was formed by combining the first letters JAneček and WAnderer. Well, now it's clear, the name of the motorcycle brand is not taken from one of the islands in Indonesia (the Jawa island).

In the past, especially around the 1950s, JAWA was one of the leading motorcycle brands and was recorded to have exported its JAWA 350 motorcycle models to more than 120 countries. Although, in its journey, the company had ever stumbled due to having many financial problems so that the products it produced were unable to compete in the global market, so some of its factories had been shut down.

After 1990, there were significant production losses. For this reason, a successor company was formed in 1997 in Týnec nad Sázavou, to continue the brand under the name of JAWA Moto. In 2016, Mahindra, an automotive manufacturer from India through its subsidiary the Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd. (CLPL) acquired the company.

And in the following years, the brand again brought its motorbikes to compete in the world motorcycle market. Noted several models have been born under the name of the JAWA brands, such as JAWA 350 OHC, JAWA 660 Vintage, and others.

And at the end of 2018, the company introduced 3 models of motorbikes at the same time, namely the JAWA Forty-Two, JAWA classic, and JAWA Perak (in the time introduced as concept motorcycles). It seems that the presence of a row of JAWA motorcycles will make it a strong competitor for other players in the classic motorbike segments in the world's market today.

1. JAWA Forty-Two
Starting with the JAWA 42 is equipped with a clean teardrop-shaped tank with JAWA badges on both sides. Follows with the Wide seats to offer a comfortable ride while slightly tapering towards the rear, to give a definitive character to the rear. This motorcycle is also equipped with almost all-around motorcycle chrome accents, such as around the headlamps, side indicators and rear springs suspension arrangement with the throttle.

On the back is equipped with a small taillamp arrangement, just above the number plate. The model name "forty-two" is also written between the backlight and the number plate, adding to the classic motorbike characters behind.

2. JAWA classic
Then the new JAWA classic, its design offers simple bodywork with minimalist design features. Where the JAWA classic becomes a motorcycle with an authentic design that reinforces the assimilation of a classic and modern look. This can be seen, including in the classic water drop-shaped fuel tank, round headlamps surrounded by chrome. The sides of the tank are also coated in polished chrome, with JAWA badges on both sides. It flows to the back follows the same retro theme with a small backlight. There are two mufflers on both sides to add the motorbike's dashing look.

The power produced by the Perak engine reaches 30 hp and a maximum torque of 31 Nm. At the engine's displacement, the Perak engine is slightly larger than JAWA classic and JAVA 42. No wonder if it was able to spew more power comes from its large valves. In comparison, the JAWA classic and JAWA 42 able to produce 27 hp of power and 28 Nm of torque. And the JAWA Perak also has different subframe and suspension settings on the back. And this motorcycle uses the mono-shock and has disc brakes with a double channel ABS (anti-lock braking) system as one of its standard features.

Weighing up to 179 kg and 145 mm ground clearance.

As quoted from Indianautosblog, the JAWA Perak motorcycles will be sold limited to the initial order at a price of around Rs 1.89 lakh or around Rp.38.1 million, this is done to avoid the long waiting period as happened in the JAWA classic and JAWA Forty-Two. The waiting period for the two retro style motorcycle models reaches 5 to 6 months.
In order not to overload the motorcycle orders, the Classic Legend opens 100 new dealers in India within 100 days. It is known, this retro type motorcycle is very popular among the Indian people. Previously, the company had stopped the ordering process for 40 days after the JAWA Forty Two launching, so the opening of 100 dealers had to be done quickly to anticipate the big surge in the motorcycle orders happened again.
