Launched a few days ago in India, the new Jawa Perak is priced from about Rs 1.95 lakhs, ex-sh. Making it the most expensive motorcycle from Jawa on offer today. A bobber styled motorcycle, many were wondering if it is possible to install a rear seat in the Jawa Perak. Seems like a rendering artist has the answer.
Seen in the digital render above is an artist’s imagination of how a dual seat Jawa Perak would look like. Just like the front seat support, the support for rear seat is also welded directly on to the motorcyle’s chassis. It is to be noted here that Jawa has not announced launch of Jawa Perak dual seat – either as a new variant or as an official accessory.
What is confirmed that the single seat Jawa Perak is launched with BS6 compliant engine. Test rides have started in select dealerships. Below is a video posted by one Jawa enthusiast, who managed to take a test ride of Perak. Listen to the exhaust note of Jawa Perak.
Jawa Perak, the first factory made bobber motorcycle in India, is powered by a BS6 compliant 334cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC engine offering 30 hp power and 31 Nm torque mated to a 6 speed transmission. It will receive telescopic hydraulic fork in the front and monoshock absorber in the rear while kerb weight is at 179 kgs. The braking duties will be via twin disc brakes with standard dual channel anti lock braking system.
Where design elements are concerned, it will be in stark contrast to the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two with a floating seat, tear drop shaped fuel tank, low set and widely positioned handlebars and a matte black finish. It will also receive a longer wheelbase at 1,485mm and new swing arm for better stability and handling and it sits on blacked out spoke wheels.
The Jawa Perak will be produced from the company’s Pithampur facility from where the other two Jawa motorcycles are also produced. But, the production line is different for Perak. Jawa says launch of Perak will not affect deliveries of Jawa and Jawa 42. Booking numbers and sales figures of Jawa motorcycles have not been revealed since April 2018.
For Perak, bookings commence in January 2020, while deliveries will only start after 1st April 2020. That is a 4.5 months waiting period already. Jawa says that Perak deliveries will not be delayed like the other Jawa.
