Classic Legends has just unveiled the 90th anniversary edition of the Jawa 300, and the motorcycle will go on sale shortly through a lucky draw. In terms of pricing, the Jawa 300 90th Anniversary Edition will command the same price as the regular dual channel ABS variant. The special edition motorcycle will also have dual channel ABS as standard. The anniversary edition will be mechanically unchanged from the regular Jawa 300, and the only changes will be cosmetic. Only 90 units will be built, making it highly exclusive. Here is an official video of the Jawa 300 90th Anniversary Edition, which will take you through the various changes on the special edition model. Just so you know, the Jawa 300 90th Anniversary Edition marks the 90th anniversary of the Jawa brand, which was set up on the 23rd of October 1929, in what was Czechoslovakia back then.
As the video indicates, the 90th Anniversary Edition model of the Jawa 300 gets a new paint scheme for the tank, which is done up in a very classy, period correct cream and red. The tank also gets individual numbering, which will denote each of the 90 examples that Classic Legends will build and sell in India to commemorate the brand’s 90th anniversary. The clutch cover gets anniversary edition insignia as well. While all these changes are subtle, they’re meant to celebrate the whole aura around the brand, and Jawa has done well to price it the same as a dual channel ABS equipped Jawa 300 model, at Rs. 1.72 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi.

Jawa customers with a booking number, and new customers who book their Jawa before October 22 will be allowed to participate in the lucky draw that Classic Legends will hold on 23rd of October, 2019. The 90 winners picked from this contest will get their Jawa 300 90th Anniversary Edition without a waiting period.
The 90th anniversary edition Jawa 300 is powered by the same 295cc, four stroke engine that the regular variants of the Jawa 300 and Forty-Two come with. This liquid cooled, twin overhead camshaft equipped, single cylinder engine makes 26 Bhp of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque. A six speed manual gearbox is offered as standard. Telescopic forks and twin gas charged shock absorbers handle suspension duties at the front and rear.
Disc brakes at the front and rear with dual channel ABS is standard on the motorcycle. The Jawa 300 is a retro motorcycle designed for those who want an everyday bike that turns heads at every intersection but with modern mechanicals that ensures that the bike can keep up with faster traffic and be very reliable. Essentially, it offers a retro styled motorcycle for those who don’t have the time and energy for the upkeep of a classic, two stroke Jawa.
