Jawa 350 Spe­cial Breaks Cover

Bike India - - IGNITION -

MAHIN­DRA CRE­ATED QUITE A STIR IN THE two-wheeler in­dus­try when they ac­quired the li­cence to the iconic Jawa brand name. Al­though there hasn’t been much move­ment in the In­dian mar­ket since this ac­qui­si­tion, Eu­rope has wit­nessed steady sales of Jawa bikes all along. The lat­est in that line is this retro-cool 350 with an old-school bikini fair­ing and a “Spe­cial” moniker.

Based on the Jawa 350 OHC that’s al­ready sold there, the Spe­cial comes with a fourstroke air-cooled 343.5-cc par­al­lel twin pro­duc­ing 23.11 PS at 5,250 rpm and 32 Nm at 4,250 rpm and it is mated to a four-speed gear­box. The mo­tor­cy­cle weighs 170 kg and comes equipped with ABS and a long-range 17-litre fuel tank. The café racer style seat and clas­sic spoked wheels along with the afore­men­tioned fair­ing, and sin­gle, round head­lamp def­i­nitely lend this bike some sweet street cred. So, will Mahin­dra de­cide to bring it to In­dia as well or will we have to con­tinue ad­mir­ing it from afar? Well, only time will tell.
