Demand for Jawa is no longer same as before. This easy EMI scheme is most likely a bid to push up booking numbers and sales in the New Year.
Jawa Motorcycles, having made their debut in India in late 2018 with two new motorcycles Jawa and Jawa FortyTwo have also recently introduced the Jawa Perak in November 2019. Demand for Jawa motorcycles is no longer the same as before. The Perak is already being offered with attractive schemes of zero down payment as well as easy EMIs of Rs.6,666.
Now it is the turn of the Jawa and Jawa FortyTwo which comes in with attractive finance schemes and easy EMIs of Rs.5,555. These two bikes were launched with much fanfare but soon left many disappointed buyers who had to wait for extended periods for delivery. Lack of communication from dealerships caused many of these buyers to cancel their bookings.
Select company dealers now promise no waiting period for the Jawa and Jawa FortyTwo, while deliveries of the Jawa Perak will commence from 2nd April 2020. The Jawa Perak is a BS6 motorcycle, priced at Rs.1,94,500. Jawa and Jawa FortyTwo are still BS4, and carry price tags of Rs. 1.64 lakhs and Rs.1.55 lakhs respectively.
It may be recalled that when the Jawa Perak was first unveiled in India, price was quoted at Rs.1.89 lakhs. This increased price of Rs.5,000 could be due to the compliance with new BS6 emission norms. Similarly, prices of Jawa and Jawa 42 will also be increased once they are updated to BS6 norms.
The Jawa and Jawa FortyTwo are powered by the same 293cc liquid cooled single cylinder engine from Mahindra Mojo, offering 27 bhp peak power and 28 Nm peak torque. This engine will be updated to comply with new BS6 emission norms prior to the 1st April 2020 deadline. The Jawa Perak on the other hand gets a 334 cc single cylinder, four stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC engine which is BS6 compliant and makes 30 bhp power and 31 Nm torque. Both these engines get mated to a 6 speed transmission.
Prior to launch of the Jawa Motorcycles, a subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra, they had released a teaser video showing off four body styles of a cafe racer, bobber, roadster and an ADV style. With the roadster, classic and bobber already launched, the company could next bring in either a café racer or an off-roader in due course.
