Jawa Motorcycles has kick-started their journey again in the Indian market. The brand has announced three all-new motorcycles for the market and before the official announcement, there were quite a few reports suggesting that Jawa would introduce a scrambler in the line-up too. However, the things did not happen as everyone hoped and Jawa announced three bikes and none of them is a Scrambler.
SRK Designs, who has been making amazing rendering images has released the Scrambler version of the Jawa 42 bike and it looks amazing. The cruiser designed Forty-Two has been completely transformed and there is a video showing how he has done the transformation. SRK design started with the new tail section. The new tail in the Scrambler is shorter than the Forty-Two and has a short seat for single riders. The exhaust has also been updated to an upswept one, which further gives it a very off-road look. The rear tail lamp is mounted on the seat itself, giving a very retro look to the bike. It also gets knobby tyres that are much bigger in size, giving a very powerful look to the bike.
The other changes include the addition of engine bash plate, which ensures that the engine sump remains intact even while riding on the rough roads. There is also a grille to the headlamp that gives it protection while adding the Scrambler look.
Jawa has not officially said anything on the launch of the Scrambler model but we are certainly keeping our fingers crossed in hope to see the new bike out in the market soon. Jawa is currently offering only two out of three bikes it announced. There is a Jawa, Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa Perak. The bookings for the Jawa and the Jawa Forty-Two have opened and the deliveries are expected to start by January 2019. Jawa has also started to inaugurate dealerships across India. It has a network of 105 dealerships and service centres across India. Jawa also plans to start offering test-rides to the customers by the end of December.
Recently, Jawa announced that both Jawa and the Jawa Forty-Two would be available with an option of the rear disc brake and dual-channel ABS. Initially, both the bikes only came with an option of the front disc brake and single-channel ABS. With the addition of the rear disc brake and dual-channel ABS, the price goes up by Rs. 9,000. Jawa is also offering to upgrade to the dual-channel ABS model for the customers who have already booked their bikes.
Both Jawa and Jawa Forty-Two are powered by 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out a maximum of 27 Bhp and 28 Nm. There is also the Perak model, which is a Bobber styled motorcycle. It gets a larger 334cc engine and generates a maximum of 30 Bhp and 31 Nm.
