With many owners waiting for for over 8 months, and some even waiting for 11 months – it will come as a surprise that the Jawa motorcycles waiting periods have finally declined. And that to at a record low of just 10 days.
At the Perak launch, Jawa did say that they have streamlined production, and are in a much better state to take care of the demand. In addition to that, many owners decided to cancel their bookings and buy something else as they were not ready to wait for months. Together, this has helped waiting period of Jawa motorcycles to come down.
Select dealers of Jawa are now promising deliveries in 7 days. This is good news for those who have been planning on buying Jawa, but did not want to wait for months.
Speaking about the Jawa motorcycles, it appears to be the season where motorcycle designers are turning the pages of history to find inspiration for new machines. Most recent example is that of Jawa, an iconic brand that was hugely popular throughout the second half of twentieth century. In India, the Jawa brand has been given a new lease of life by Mahindra owned Classic Legends. In November 2018, Classic Legends launched 3 motorcycles – Jawa, Jawa 42 and Jawa Perak.
Jawa comes with a vintage design, quite similar to the original Jawa motorcycle that was hugely popular during the 70s and 80s. Jawa’s retro looks appeal to a wide audience, especially the ones who may want to take a trip down memory lane. Jawa looks classy and elegant with its curvaceous bodywork, polished chrome accents, teardrop headlight, and rounded mirrors and indicator lights.
Jawa forty two looks sportier, even though it has the soul of the original Jawa. It has retro-modern styling, which appeals to the young and old alike. Jawa forty two has an aggressive seating position owing to its low-mounted handlebars.
All three bikes have telescopic hydraulic fork at the front. At the rear, Jawa and Jawa forty two have gas canister twin chock hydraulic suspension whereas Perak has monoshock suspension. All three bikes have 280 mm disc brakes at the front. Rear brakes in Perak are disc brakes whereas drum/disc option is provide for Jawa twins. All three bikes come with ABS.
