Jawa Motorcycles were re-introduced to the Indian market last year (2018). They made their entry with two models Jawa (classic) and Jawa 42. Jawa motorcycle celebrated first year of launch in November and as part of the celebration, Jawa launched their third bike Perak. Perak is a factory custom bobber motorcycle. It is one of a kind of motorcycle as none of the Indian motorcycles have ever launched a bobber. At Rs 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom), it also happens to be the most affordable bobber currently sold in India. Here we have a video by Ayush Verma who takes the Jawa Perak motorcycle on a quick spin. The video has been uploaded on his Youtube channel.
The video starts inside a Jawa showroom in Lucknow where he talks about the looks and changes on the bike. The video talks about the design, how unique the Perak looks with its twin exhaust, single seat, low slung seating position and the mono-shock suspension at the rear. The video also shows the under seat tail lights and the exhaust note of Perak can also be heard.
Rider then takes the bike out of the showroom and goes out for a quick spin. According to the rider, bike felt very smooth and the throaty exhaust note can also be heard through out the video. The more he pushes the bike, more louder the exhaust gets. The engine felt very smooth and had that punch to reach triple digit speeds. The vibrations on the bike were minimum. As this was a new bike, rider did not push it that hard.
The suspension on the bike felt soft, and the seat is also more comfortable than that of the earlier Jawa’s. The Jawa (Classic) and Jawa 42’s seat was on the firmer side that made lng rides uncomfortable. But with this soft and comfortable seat on Perak, riders will definitely enjoy their long rides. The rider even says on video that if a person planning to buy a RE test rides a Jawa Perak, he/she will forget RE and fall in love with Perak.
Perak uses a rebored 300-cc engine from the Jawa Classic and Jawa 42. It is now a 334-cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine producing a maximum power of 30 Bhp and 31 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Just like Jawa (Classic) and 42, Perak has also brought some changes in the market and is likely to be a hit, just like the other two models. Deliveries for Jawa Perak will start later next year.
