With bookings now collected, when will delivery start? That is the question thousands of Jawa fans are asking. Well, there is now an official answer. Anupam Thareja, co-founder of Classic Legends, has taken to twitter to make this announcement.
“The moment of truth is here for #JawaMotorcycles. We were audacious and planned a 100 showrooms nationwide before starting delivery – that’s being done in record time by March 3rd week. Fourth week onwards, we will start delivery across the country as per the booking queue!”
Speaking about delivery, there is no clear way to find out who is in queue, and when is one expected to get the delivery. A dealer confirmed that as and when a particular motorcycle is up for delivery, the respective buyer will get a call about a week in advance, when he or she will be asked to deposit the full amount of the bike.
