It was exactly a year ago when Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd. embarked on a journey studded with classic motorcycles. The Jawa and Jawa forty two were launched to a thrilled audience at a glittering ceremony in Mumbai while the Jawa Perak Bobber was showcased as a factory custom.
Today, Classic Legends celebrated its first anniversary by delivering on its promise of launching the stunning new Jawa Perak. But, before unveiling the Perak, Classic Legends also touched upon the achievements of the year gone by. An overwhelming response to bookings for Jawa Motorcycles ensured the brand was sold out for 9 months, within a few days from the announcement and had to close online bookings within 40 days of launch. The brand also achieved the distinction of opening 100 new dealerships in a span of less than 100 days, an impressive accomplishment for an automobile brand in the country.
Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd. introduced the Jawa ‘Anniversary Edition’ in India, to mark the 90th anniversary of Jawa Motorcycles. This motorcycle is built as a homage to the glorious beginnings of the brand in 1929. This edition was limited to just 90 units and featured a special 90th anniversary colour scheme inspired by the Jawa 500 OHV the first ever Jawa to rollout in then Czechoslovakia. Every motorcycle will also feature commemorative emblem on the fuel tank along with its individual serial number out of 90.
Over the course of one year, the brand also reignited the spark of all Jawa and Yezdi riders in the country and united them back as a strong Jawa community with the biggest ever concurrent International Jawa Day celebrations.
Jawa Perak Bobber comes with a BS6 334cc liquid cooled, single cylinder, four stroke, DOHC engine, producing 30 bhp of power and 31 Nm of torque, breathing out through signature twin Jawa exhausts, albeit chopped for the authentic bobber stance. All this power is put to the tarmac via a 6-speed transmission with ratios optimised to offer a great riding experience through the gears. Housed in a tweaked chassis with an all-new swingarm, engineered to offer the optimum transverse, longitudinal, torsional rigidity. Frame and swingarm stiffness have been tuned for a linear feel, aiding stability over straights and poise along winding roads. This plays a significant role in improving the handling. The Perak is priced at INR 1,94,500 (ex- showroom, New Delhi) and the booking will begin online at www.jawamotorcycles.com from 1st January, 2020.
