Online bookings for the Jawa Perak BS6 are open at a token amount of Rs 10,000
Jawa Motorcycles India has announced the date from which the Perak deliveries will start in India. Earlier, the date was 1st April 2020. But due to the pandemic, this got delayed. The new date from which delivery of Jawa Perak will start is 20th July 2020.
Owned by Classic Legends (a subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra group), the Czech-origin two-wheeler manufacturer introduced its new line of products, 42, ‘Jawa’ (or Jawa Classic) and Perak back in November 2018. The first two were launched then and there while it took exactly a year for the Jawa Perak to hit our market.
Prices for the 2020MY Jawa Perak BS6 start at Rs 1.95 lakh ex-showroom. Online bookings are open at a token amount of Rs 10,000. It was the first Jawa product to follow BS6 emission norms while the lesser ‘Jawa’ and 42 received the update earlier this year. BS6 ‘Jawa’ and 42 versions carry a starting price tag of Rs 1.60 lakh and Rs 1.73 lakh, respectively.
Although Jawa Motorcycles initially made a strong statement by introducing two compelling alternatives to Royal Enfield’s popular ‘UCE 350’ lineup, the company could not keep track of delivery times in the months that followed. Now, sales are gradually picking up albeit affected by COVID-19. The Jawa siblings primarily rival the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Benelli Imperiale 400.
Jawa Perak EMI / Finance schemes
To boost sales and to help enthusiasts buy the new Jawa Perak during these difficult times, the company has announced the launch of attractive EMI offers and finance schemes. These are detailed as follows;
– 50% off on first 3 EMIs
– Special EMI plan @ Rs. 6,666/month
– EMI plans as low as Rs. 8,000 @ 2years and Rs. 6,000 @ 3years
– 100% funding | Zero down payment | No income proof required. (T&C apply)
Initial Delivery Date
Coming to the Jawa Perak, the bobber-style single-seater has no direct rivals. Its closest alternatives come in the premium twin-cylinder middleweight category. Bookings were opened on 1 January 2020 and most dealerships still have one unit on display. Some dealers were also offering test rides. At first, Jawa Motorcycles planned a delivery timeline on the first week of April but had to postpone the same due to COVID-19 lockdown protocols.
Meanwhile, a few examples of the Jawa Perak BS6 were spotted doing test runs across different parts of the country. Since the motorcycle was already unveiled in full, the prototypes did not wear any camouflage.
Besides the obvious single-seater layout, the Jawa Perak has some interesting highlights. They include a single Black (actually dark grey) colour option with gold accents, tan seat, twin-exhaust system, bar-end mirrors, single-pod instrument console, spoke wheels, round lighting units alongside a host of model-specific accessories.
Specs & Powertrain
Powering the Jawa Perak BS6 is a 334cc (bore x stroke: 81x65mm) liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine. It generates 30bhp and 31Nm of torque. In comparison, the ‘Jawa’ and 42 employs a 293cc (76x65mm) version of the power plant (derived from the Mahindra Mojo’s 295cc unit) good for 27bhp and 28Nm. All three come coupled to a 6-speed transmission.
