BRING­ING BACK an old clas­sic to In­dia, Mahin­dra-owned Clas­sic Leg­ends launched the retro-styled Jawa Mo­tor­cy­cles from the 1960s with three all-new mo­tor­cy­cles - Jawa, Jawa 42 and Jawa Perak. The prices range from Rs. 1.55 lakh for the Jawa 42, Rs. 1.64 lakh for the Jawa and Rs. 1.89 lakh for the fac­tory-cus­tom bob­ber model, Jawa Perak. The new mod­els use a 293cc, liq­uid-cooled en­gine with sin­gle-chan­nel ABS. The Jawa is a 300cc retro-styled cruiser, tak­ing the fight straight to Royal En­field’s 350cc mod­els. Most of the de­signs el­e­ments are re­tained from the orig­i­nal, but with bet­ter build, more power and lower cen­tre of grav­ity. The com­pany has re­tained some of the old-school charm such as the round head­lamp, fend­ers and bul­bous fuel tank, chain guard and the seat. The com­pany will start with 105 deal­er­ships, with de­liv­er­ies to be­gin early next year. The com­pany en­ters the ter­ri­tory of yet an­other Go­liath, the Royal En­field and it will be ex­cit­ing to see how Jawa man­ages to re-cre­ate the magic.
