The new Jawa model line-up for India
Jawa: The timeless style and iconic character of the original Jawa is reborn in this new Jawa. With an evolutionary aesthetic that retains the authenticity and familiarity of the past – classy, elegant, sophisticated, majestic - this one is tuned for the legacy seekers. The Jawa in its form and function is the quintessential classic with old world character and truly modern performance.
Jawa Forty Two: This is the classic that breaks boundaries and experiments. With quirkiness in its design and unconventional traits the Forty Two is a - toned, muscled, sporty, assertive version of a classic if there was ever to be one! The Forty Two is meant to appeal to the heart as well as the head.
New Jawa Engine: The 293cc liquid cooled, single cylinder DOHC engine
With a 293cc liquid cooled, single cylinder, DOHC engine, built from the ground up in collaboration with the best of Italian engineering, it is going to be all new, and at the same time, a classic Jawa experience. It packs 27 bhp and 28 Nm of torque with a generous mid-range and a flat torque curve for an unwavering, consistently powered ride. But at the core of its heart and along the length of its classic lines and with every beat of its signature twin exhaust, it is unmistakably the Jawa you will love. The engine platform is built ready for the BS VI norms.
Jawa Motorcycles dealership network
The Jawa and Jawa Forty Two will be sold through 100+ showrooms/dealership outlets that will become operational over the next three months.
