2018 was the year when Jawa Motorcycles made a re-entry to the Indian market and introduced two models Jawa (Classic) and Jawa 42. Both Jawa and Jawa 42 recieved a good response from the buyers. There was a long waiting list for the motorcycles as the demand was high. As part of their first year anniversary celebration, Jawa launched their model Jawa Perak, a few months ago. Perak has been officially launched and is priced at Rs 1.94 lakh, ex-showroom. Jawa has now released a teaser video of the Jawa Perak revealing the dates for booking and deliveries.
The tease video is basically the cut short version of the official TVC that Jawa had released few months ago. Jawa became the first ever manufacturer to come up with a factory custom bobber motorcycle. That too the most affordable one in the country right now. The Video towards the end reveals when the booking and deliveries of the Perak would start. Bookings for Perak will start from 1st of January 2020 and the Deliveries will commence from 2nd April 2020.
Perak is a beautiful motorcycle with retro looks and the bobber like styling. Bobber refers to a type of motorcycle that has been stripped down and only essential components are left on it to reduce the weight. Jsut like a classic bobber Perak also gets a low slung seating position with rear fenders chopped to get a good view of the fat rear tyre. Just like other Jawas, Perak also gets a twin exhaust system which in this case is painted black and produces an aggressive note. The elongated swingarm, bar-end mirrors, matte black paint job all add to the character of the Perak and make it a distinct from the regular motorcycles.
Powering the Jawa Perak is a 334 cc, four-stroke single-cylinder, fuel injected, liquid-cooled unit which churns out 30 Bhp of power and 31 Nm of peak torque. The engine is BS6 Compliant and also gets Dual channel ABS. The Jawa (Classic) and Jawa 42 are doing pretty well in terms of sales and have a long waiting period. The Perak will have a dedicated production line, which means that the deliveries of the Forty-Two and Classic will not be affected. Test rides of the Perak will begin shortly at most Jawa dealerships across the country. Classic Legends will soon offer the Perak’s 332cc big bore engine on the Jawa Classic and Forty-Two models. The bigger engined Jawa Forty-Two and Classic will be pricier than the base variants, and will be launched in the second half of 2020.
