Every year, the 8th of July is celebrated as International Jawa Day, and for the first time Anand Mahindra has tweeted about it. He has posted a picture, which has the details of all the eight locations across India where the Jawa Day will be celebrated. The picture also says that if someone is planning to celebrate the Jawa Day, they should reach out to the Mahindra team to get the details included in the picture.
Mahindra & Mahindra owns the rights to sell the Jawa motorcycles in India and other South-Asian markets. After the confirmation from Anand Mahindra, it is now clear that the bike will be launched in India within the next six months at the most. The company is expected to launch the all-new bike around the festive season, which sees a rise in the sale of automobiles.
The Jawa range of motorcycles will be the most expensive bike sold by Mahindra and will be placed above the Mojo. It is expected to get a retro body design but the engine will come from the Mojo itself. Mahindra will utilise the 292-cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine in the Jawa bikes. It produces a maximum of 27 Bhp and 30 Nm in the Mojo but Mahindra may tune it differently for the Mojo. The 5-speed transmission is also expected to be same as the one we see in the Mojo.
The Jawa range could be an alternative to the popular retro-styled Royal Enfield motorcycles that post high sales in India. The Jawa bikes are likely to be priced around Rs. 2 lakhs, but similar to the Mahindra Mojo UT, which is a lower-end variant with fewer features. We can expect a more price-effective version of the bike in the future.
