Indian automaker Mahindra is all set unveil a new lineup of Jawa motorcycles in India on the 15th of November. One of the new bikes in the lineup is set to be a Scrambler and Indian Autos Blog (IAB) has rendered out what that new Jawa motorcycle could look like when it is unveiled in six days time.
The IAB rendering of the Jawa Scrambler 300, which will be sold in India via Mahindra’s subsidiary Classic Legends Private Limited, imagines a bike with an upright stance and a tall handlebar along with a long single seat, typical of the Scrambler style of bikes. The motorcycle features long-travel suspension upside-down front forks and knobby tyres set on large spoked wheels. On each wheel, the bike features disc brakes. The bike also features a high set exhaust setup that exits on the sides of the seat.
Mahindra had teased four different bikes in its teaser for the upcoming Jawa lineup. The Teaser showed us a cruiser, which is expected to be the first model to hit the road alongside a Scrambler, a Cafe Racer and a Bobber and while it is not sure if all of them will be showcased on the 15th, Mahindra’s plans to attack the Royal Enfield lineup sure looks set if all four do make onto the roads anytime soon. The Jawa Scrambler 300, when it does finally hit Indian roads will take on the Himalayan and Mahindra is expected to keep the prices of the Jawa lineup aggressive, to help them take on a segment dominated by Royal Enfield.
The new lineup will draw power from an all-new 293 cc DOHC engine which features liquid cooling and fuel injection. The engine produces 27 Bhp and 28 Nm of torque which is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed manual transmission. The engine is compliant with upcoming BS-VI emission norms. The new Jawa lineup will also feature anti-lock brakes to help braking performance from their disc brake setup. However, unlike Royal Enfield, the Jawas will only feature single-channel ABS, at least that is what the spy images of the Jawa Cruiser on a photo shoot revealed to us a few days ago.
